Casey Affleck and Joaquin Phoenix I'm Still Here Is Fake

It's Official: Joaquin Phoenix's Movie I'm Still Here Is Fake

We can finally lay the great cinematic mystery of 2010 to bed: Casey Affleck's documentary I'm Still Here, which follows Joaquin Phoenix's attempt to enter hip-hop, is indeed a fake. The director confirmed everyone's suspicions in an interview this morning. While I always had a good degree of skepticism about the truthfulness of the film, the announcement still frustrates me. The charade feels like an insider joke that, frankly, I just don't get.

I'm surprised that they came out so quickly that its a fake. I would have expected them to try and drag it out a little longer.

I'm just glad they finally admitted it was fake so I can resume my delusions that one day I will madly and passionately make out with Joaquin...: )
