Trailer: I'm Still Here

Remember back to 2008 if you will, when Joaquin Phoenix announced he was retiring from acting to pursue a career in Hip-Hop. No one knew if it was a hoax or not. One thing that did come out was that Phoenix was filming a documentary directed by Casey Affleck that would follow this transition. Recently the first trailer has been released and I have it here for you below. After the viewing the trailer, I'm still not quite sure if this is a gag or not, but I certainly want to see it. Take a look for yourself after the jump...

Magnolia Pictures have released this official synopsis: "I'm Still Here" is a portrayal of a tumultuous year in the life of actor Joaquin Phoenix. With remarkable access, the documentary 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. The film is a portrait of an artist at a crossroads and explores notions of courage and creative reinvention, as well as the ramifications of a life spent in the public eye. The Casey Affleck directed documentary will release in limited theaters on September 10th.
