I’m Still Here – The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix is due to be released in September and shows the downward spiral of the eccentric actor into drugs, drinking and call girls and features Joaquin frequently nude with long unruly hair and an incredibly massive beard as he pursues his new rap career.
Many are calling it a hoax since the clean-shaven “old” Joaquin keeps popping up looking healthy and sane all over Los Angeles.
Details of the upcoming film have been pretty quiet, so 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.
