With "The Gift," Cash's 71-year reckoning with the wages of sin and salvation is put in eloquently humbling, myth-busting perspective.

The time "The Gift" spends reiterating that same truth from shallower perspectives somehow feel both necessary and not...there's only so much they want to add to the conversation.

It does right by Cash, and furthers the impression that Zimny should be funded to make a dozen such movies, each at whatever length its subject demands. Quickly, please.
