Joaquin Phoenix wants everyone to know that he’s still here! If you didn’t know, then you do now. The poster for the infamous Casey Affleck (Joaquin’s bro-in-law) directed documentary was just released. You remember that Phoenix has had some interesting moments. He had the bizarre Letterman interview, he became a rapper, and even had a brawl at a concert he was performing at, at a Miami Nightclub.

What is this documentary about? What has he been up to? “I’M STILL HERE” is a portrayal of a tumultuous year in the life of internationally acclaimed actor. 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. Rumor has it, there are some crazy scenes showing Phoenix basically just ‘wilding out’. It has its fair share of sex, drugs and craziness!

You may wonder, did he really quit Hollywood or was it for the documentary? Personally, I think this is the real deal. I support this guy, and I love his new persona. I can’t wait to see this doc, as it should be super compelling!!

I’M STILL HERE opens in theaters September 10, 2010.
