My Father And The Man In Black review

Writer/director Jonathan Holiff's father Saul was Johnny Cash’s personal manager.

Following Saul’s suicide in 2005, Holiff Jr discovered a treasure trove of archival material at the family home – including audio diaries, taped phone calls and private letters – which forms the core of this memoir. 

Like Sarah Polley’s superior Stories We Tell , this blurs the boundaries between fiction and ‘reality’, not least through staged reenactments. 

The presentation could be punchier, but it’s impossible not to be moved by the personal stories therein.
