Synopsis:
The directorial debut of Oscar-nominated actor Casey Affleck, I'm Still Here is a portrayal of a tumultuous year in the life of 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. Joaquin outrageous antics feature fellow A-listers P. Diddy, Ben Stiller and a now infamous appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. 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.

Unwatchable and self-indulgent - I'm Still Here review by AER

Spoiler Alert
16/06/2019

I'm sure that it's down to the simple reason that I think Joaquin Phoenix is one of the greatest American actors at work today that I sought this curio out. It's like that old adage, 'Never meet your heroes' because this is an embarrassing, self-indulgent shambles which it tortuous to watch. This mockumentary began life as a documentary made by Phoenix's friend Casy Affleck to chronicle the former's retirement from acting and his attempts to be taken seriously as a rapper. But all we're treated to is a string of shambolic, unfunny and ultimately boring scenes where we get an insight into how Phoenix supposedly leads his life with his merry band of acolytes. I doubt Joaquin Phoenix and Casy Affleck hold this 'personal project' in high regard - it must have seemed like a good idea at the time but it's a skid mark on their respectable careers. Avoid.
