I’m Still Here – Joaquin Phoenix’s media hoax?


Joaquin Phoenix’s supposed retirement from a career as an acclaimed and successful actor, in order to pursue rapping has intrigued, perplexed, amused and to some extent inspired me for almost two years now (if you haven’t seen his bizarre appearance on Letterman, you should). Casey Affleck has made a documentary on Phoenix’s transition, and I can’t wait to see what it’s all about. Phoenix’s move is probably not the real deal, and if it isn’t, it would be one of the world’s most elaborate practical jokes / media hoaxes / mockumentaries. I guess we’ll soon find out.
