I'm Still Here
I'm Still Here opens tomorrow.It "stars" Joaquin Pheonix and is directed by Casey Affleck. Honestly I have no idea if it is a documentary about stardom, or a mockumentary about stardom. I'm hoping the later. Joaquin seems so lost in the trailer footage (below), and on the infamous Letterman appearance.
Hopefully we will see a clean shaven, happy Joaquin soon...
Here's Magnolia Films plot summary:
I'm Still Here is a portrayal of a tumultuous year in the life of actor Joaquin Phoenix. With remarkable access, the documentary follows the Oscar-nominee as he announces his retirement from a successful film career in the fall of 2008 and sets off to reinvent himself as a hip hop musician. The film is a portrait of an artist at a crossroads and explores notions of courage and creative reinvention, as well as the ramifications of a life spent in the public eye.
