Now I don’t kow about you but I was a little surprised when Joaquin Phoenix turned his back on a successful acting career to go and rap… yes if you miseed the story you heard me right.
Needless to say not much seem to have come from his move in the music business and Phoenix seems to have disappeared, such a shame for a great acting talent.
However Casey Affleck has been filming a documentary about the actor and his move from acting to music call I’m Still Here.
I’m Still Here is a striking portrayal of a tumultuous year in the life of internationally acclaimed actor Joaquin Phoenix.
The film 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.
