Optimum Releasing today sent me the UK Trailer and Poster for Casey Affleck documentary film based on his brother in law, everyones favourite mad man Joaquin Phoenix.
The movie is based on the ‘lost year’ of the troubled stars life where he basically gave everything up to persue a career as a rapstar under the wing of P-Diddy aka Sean Combs. The question you ask is this really a mockamentary? Or is it the downward spiral of a troubled actor who has mentally as well as pyshically let go of reality?
Whatever the movie is trying to be you’ll laugh,cry, cringe and even you’ll ask why?!
The movie will be out a week on Friday (10th) USA released by Magnolia Pictures but for UK its Optimum Releasing and will be out probably limited release on September 17th.
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.
I’m Still Here is released in cinemas on September 17.
