Speaking of Guitars


I saw “Walk the Line” over the weekend. It was quite well done. But as an aspiring (very poor) guitar player myself, I find myself watching the hands and fingers of anyone who’s playing and I swear I didn’t see Joaquin Phoenix’s left hand move once during the entire movie. It was a minor thing, but became a distraction. He would be playing some dramatic duo with June Carter and I’d want to yell out, “Look! His left hand’s not moving. He’s not really playing that guitar!”
