Johnny Cash – She Used To Love Me A Lot (2014)

Scroll down to content

The film-maker John Hillcoat is listing the things about Johnny Cash that appeal to him. It’s quite a list, from his distinctive voice and constant championing of the underdog to the way he’d play guitar (“he’d string it up, almost like a rifle”). Indeed, Hillcoat’s fandom is such that when he was presented with the opportunity to direct the video for Cash’s She Used To Love Me a Lot, the lead track from the forthcoming release of his “lost” 1980s album Out Among the Stars, he jumped at the chance. “I’ve been a lifelong fan,” he says. “The first film I made was a prison film [Ghosts … of the Civil Dead] so there’s definitely a connection there with the whole Folsom prison thing. I was also inspired by his voice, which has a truth to it at all times – that’s always helped me in terms of working with actors, no matter how big.” [Source]
