A story about fathers and sons. Very well told despite just a little bit wooden narration. For those complaining it's not about CASH himself, I'd ask that they take a closer look at the title. There are dozens of documentaries about Johnny Cash. This isn't one of them. This movie's scope is far more personal & relatable than any doc about a single person.

The focus is definitely on the filmmaker's father but it was an interesting journey behind the scenes and the complex relationships between entertainers and their managers.

I couldn't get past the first 15 minutes. The narrator is terrible and the story seemed more like "Me and My Father" than My Father and the Man in Black.
