Look, there’s no way this flick isn’t a joke. But good for Casey Affleck and Joaquin Phoenix for having a laugh, at their expense on the celebrity-driven tabloid culture of America.
The new poster promoting the docu-mocku-mentary is actually one of the better designed movie posters I’ve seen. Details of the film have been pretty non-existent,but here’s the official description:
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.
