Do you remember the string of surprises and shocks that were
laid heaped upon us by Joaquin Phoenix not so long ago? Well, the bearded and eccentric Joaquin is back. This is the poster for I’m Still Here – the real cause of all those shocks and surprises – directed by Casey Affleck. Beware – the documentary is set for a September 10 release!
The film’s Facebook page summarizes the beautiful effort and the resulting events as follows,
The directorial debut of Oscar-nominated actor Casey Affleck, I???M STILL HERE is a striking portrayal of a tumultuous year in the life of internationally acclaimed actor Joaquin Phoenix. With remarkable access, I???M STILL HERE 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. Sometimes funny, sometimes shocking, and always riveting, the film is a portrait of an artist at a crossroads. Defying expectations, it deftly explores notions of courage and creative reinvention, as well as the ramifications of a life spent in the public eye.
