First Poster for Joaquin Phoenix Doc 'I'm Still Here' Unveiled
It has begun. Magnolia Pictures has begun marketing the totally insane Casey Affleck-directed documentary about actor-turned-terrible-rapper Joaquin Phoenix, officially titled I'm Still Here (formerly including the subtitle The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix). Either Magnolia is truly brave or they think they've got a sleeper hit on their hands, but I'm curious to see it and find out what it's all about. While we wait for the trailer or any footage, an official poster appeared on IMDb this morning for the doc. It isn't particularly bold, but it is a solid design and we do get even more of the crazy Phoenix. We'll let you know once we have anything else.
I'm Still Here is a documentary (though it was supposedly mostly premeditated) directed and documented over the last few years by fellow actor Casey Affleck. As we head about when it was all taking place, Affleck followed actor Joaquin Phoenix during his transition from the acting world to a career as an aspiring rapper. The film supposedly features Phoenix "snorting cocaine, ordering call girls, having oral sex with a publicist, treating his assistants abusively and rapping badly." Magnolia Pictures recently acquired rights after it was completed and is now bringing I'm Still Here to limited theaters starting September 10th. Anyone else in?
