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.

CAST

 

“***** IS JOAQUIN PHOENIX PUTTING US ON? It’s either a doc capturing Hollywood’s excess at its most embarrassingly flatulent, or it’s the performance of a lifetime. ANY WAY YOU SLICE IT, HE’S BLOWN OPEN A DOOR ON CELEB CULTURE. He must be called the Brando of his generation.” – Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

“RIVETING, UNFLINCHINGLY HONEST, SCARY, ARTFUL AND FASCINATING. GRADE A-.” – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

“THERE’S A THRILLING MADNESS TO PHOENIX’S METHOD. I can’t wait for his next big act.” – David Edelstein, New York Magazine

“IF THE MOVIE IS A FAKE, THE FILMMAKERS DESERVE OSCARS FOR CREATIVITY. The movie feels utterly real and transparent and leaves an idelible impression.” – Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald

“UTTERLY FASCINATING.” – Leslie Felperin, Variety
“The great Joaquin debate — is he crazy like a loon, or like a fox?” – Richard Corliss, Time

“Audiences who drink their documentaries straight beware - THIS IS ONE POTENT MIXED COCKTAIL.” – Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

“Hoax or no hoax, Phoenix gives an all-out performance, which begs the question he asked himself at the beginning of the documentary: IS THE ACTOR PLAYING A ROLE OR IS A ROLE PLAYING THE ACTOR?” – Sherri Jennings, Washington Post
