Descripción del producto
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 musicians. 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.

Spotting the influences of this film is as entertaining, if not more, than the film itself. There's `Borat', `Spinal Tap', `Don't Look Back' and even, dare I say, `The King of Comedy' in there. It's not as good as any of those films, but then again it could be a masterpiece - or is it rubbish? Blowed if I know.
Joaquin Phoenix plays Joaquin Phoenix, an Oscar-nominated, successful actor who decides he doesn't want to be a successful actor any more; instead he wants to look like the fat one out of the Blues Brothers crossed with a member of ZZ Top, and pursue his career through the medium of `rap'. His brother-in-law, (Casey Affleck), played by Casey Affleck, decides to make a film about it.
Who's playing it for real and who's faking? Well, I don't think the expression of polite horror on the face of Mos Def, when JP tells him he wants to be a rapper, can possibly be faked. Then again one certainly hopes that Edward James Olmos is faking it, or else he is an eejit of considerable magnitude. The same goes for Puff Daddy Diddy Coombs, or whatever his name is, I can't imagine he would make himself look such a fool unless it was deliberate?
The film is basically JP hanging out with his waster `friends', talking rubbish, appearing on talk-shows, and attempting to get his rap career off the ground. This culminates in an hilarious scene in a Miami nightclub where he `performs' in front of a somewhat sceptical audience, before attempting to assault a heckler.
Even more horrible than JP's ridiculous, self-indulgent life-style, is the antics of the parasites who swarm around celebrities, and their hideously inflated sense of their own importance. The paparazzi boo JP when he refuses to pose for their silly pictures; a, (presumably genuine?), twerp, from a `fan-site', belittles his career, without a trace of irony or self-consciousness, as 'unimportant' and 'boring'. The mind positively boggles.
I've only given it three stars because it isn't that entertaining; the sub-plot about his `friend' Anton betraying his trust is all a bit dull. I think you should see it though and make your own mind up about it. Maybe it is a great film - but then again it could be junk. Blowed if I know.
