Film and music – two art forms that go hand in hand. Musical soundtracks are essential to a film’s emotion. But what about films that center around the music itself? These are the best movies about music and artists that reveal the creative processes behind some of the greatest artists of all time.
Walk the Line
Johnny Cash’s early days are depicted extraordinarily well ‘Walk the Line,’ a biopic about one of country music’s most powerful voices. Joaquin Phoenix played Cash, and Reese Witherspoon (who won the Oscar for this role) was his wife and fellow musician June.
The movie largely revolves around Cash’s rise to fame. Not only was the movie really well made, but it gave us an interesting insight into the Man in Black along with his most classic songs.
