Before I get to my comments about this film, let me tell you a little about myself for a change. It's a little out of place for a dvd review but you'll see why. My name as you see is Eric Pregosin. I live near Washington DC, but grew up in Queens NY. I was born of into a non practicing jewish home, non practicing because my father's side didn't follow old traditions, hebrew school, etc. and my mother's side did, and they chose the former. In the fall of 1973 for 2nd grade, my mother pulled a "Branch Rickey" if you will and enrolled me in a Catholic School. At the time, I made some friends, got picked on by others, but the time I left after 6th grade (since we couldn't afford the tuition anymore after my parents divorced), I had more friends than critics. Around the time I was in 5th grade, we (the entire grade) were invited to gather in to lunchroom to watch a film called "The Gospel Road". Now normally when my classmates were in church or in their "religion class" after lunch, I usually turned a deaf ear. But to this film, I sat, watched and listened. Why you ask? The answer can be stated in 3 simple words which begin with the letters: "J.R.C." I was growing up on Johnny's music and knew his walk was by faith (albeit it took til middle age to get there, but hey some of us don't get there to we are seniors.) so listening to him to tell (and sing) a story of Jesus is worth the price of admission, and I enjoyed it immensely. So much so, that the next Wednesday (we had half days of school on Wednesdays) I was in a tv repair shop that sold some records, and here I was buying the "complete soundtrack" (Spoken words and Sung) on 2 LPS for (with tax) $2.79. I still own that album today, and when the time comes I will record onto blank cds to save it for posterity.Read more ›

Format: DVD
At last on DVD, this was Johnny Cash, June Carter and Kris Kristofferson's labor of love. The packaging, however, is somewhat misleading. Rather than tying in with the recent film, Walk the Line, it ought to be psychedelic and reflective of the concert gathering Explo '72. Sponsored by Campus Crusade for Christ, Explo '72 rode the wave of '60s searchin' and caught the vibe of the Jesus People movement (which also made the cover of Time magazine).

Johnny Cash appeared at this very eclectic gathering, singing a song which later made the soundtrack for this film. Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge sang "In the Garden" (not the Dylan song. Billy Graham was there along with a varied roster that included Larry Norman, Randy Matthews, Andrae Crouch and the Disciples and the Speers gospel singing family. Before Keith Green thought of offering his albums free, Campus Crusade sent the record from Explo '72 to anyone who asked for it, as a tie in to TV shows which featured Graham and cuts from the concerts.

The Jesus People at the time rejected the Hollywood blonde-haired, blue eyed portrayls of Max Von Sydow in The Greatest Story Ever Told and Ted Neely's personna in Jesus Christ Superstar, which in their view left off the end of the story. The downside of this film is that the actor playing the Man from Nazareth is also blonde-haired, but not because Cash doesn't know better. It's because the director plays the part, with June Carter as Mary Magdalene in similar anecdotal bits. This film is packed with music; Cash sings songs like "I See Men as Trees Walking", reprising his set at Explo '72, and June covers John Denver's "Follow Me," certainly as imaginative as Superstar's "I Don't Know How to Love Him.

If you are an active Christian and a Johnny Cash fan, you will LOVE this DVD! It is a labor of love, apparently funded by Johnny Cash himself, but you can tell by the look on his face that this project is very important and very fun for him to be doing!

They look like they grabbed a bunch of friends from the USA and flew everybody over to Israel to act out many Bible scenes on location. They show many scenes from the life of Jesus, mixed in with many Gospel songs by Johnny and a few others.

Johnny narrates throughout the entire film, and every ten minutes or so they show him on camera, talking into the camera about Jesus. You can tell by the sincere and content look on his face that this is a project that he is very pleased to be working on! He is not sleepwalking through any of this, he is on the set and eager to do this the best way they possibly can!

June Carter does GREAT in her brief scenes playing Mary Magdalene! She is very powerful and surprising. She shows the crying out loud joy of being in the presence of Jesus, and she is very endearing in her role here!

The music is great! I have some of Johnny's Gospel albums recorded over a decade before this movie was made. Those old Gospel albums are great to listen to, but they do display a definitely dated recording style that sounds like pop music before the birth of rock-n-roll. The music on this DVD sounds like the much more polished and sophisticated musical style of Johnny Cash or Elvis in the early 1970's.

The photography is very beautiful. There is great location scenery, and clever camera techniques used throughout.

At 83 minutes, it is a bit on the short side, for a theatrical release, when I like a film to be at least 90 minutes or more.
