My God, My Take…
Having just watched the movie the burning question I guess everyone is asking is “is it all a hoax or not?”
Well does it matter? Really? The answer is no. A better question to ask is “Is it a good film” the answer to that is… well… yes it is.
In a culture obsessed with celebrity and popular success the documentary or ‘mockumentary’ is totally riveting and will have you glued to your seat (‘If’, and its a big ‘if’, you are the type of person even moderately interested in celebrity!)
Much of it can be likened in the same way to personally watching a disaster about to happen. Picture seeing a train about to crash and having absolutely no power to to do anything about it. You know the outcome, but you can’t take your eyes off the immanent movement of the train and the inevitable outcome of the collision.
That is this film.. and it’s constructed very well.. despite what people may tell you… there is no ‘based on a true story’ there is no ‘this is fictional’ subtitles before or after. It lets you draw your own conclusions whatever they may be.
I won’t comment myself on whether its real or not but suffice to say if you research it enough I’m sure you will draw your own conclusions. (You probably will if you are the type of person that cares a jot about celebrity and whether you care about “J.P’s” future career – which is pretty clever when you think about it… And I’ll tell you why in the next paragraph).
Because Joaquin Phoenix is not likable in the film at all. He really isn’t. But you want to like him. But he is an a55. Which is quite brilliant…
In conclusion… I don’t think ‘everyone’ is going to get it… but I take my hat off to Casey Affleck because he directed it very, very well. Perhaps not in a classical style, like say, Clint Eastwood… but in a ‘gonzo’ film style that people, in my humble opinion, who are savvy and thoughtful, will understand in this modern age of CCTV, internet, Utube etc.
Lastly, if you ‘are’ one one those people then vote it an 8 because it certainly does not deserve a 6. That is simple unjust, and no I don’t work for anyone associated with the film.
Thanks for reading. My advise is give it a go…
You’re all a bunch of slaves!
I can’t believe how many people are falling for this! It’s so amazing – just makes me respect the whole concept and movie that much more.
I used to dislike Joaquin Phoenix just based off of his facial expressions and acting alone. I got bad vibes from him, something was off. Now that I’ve witnessed I’m Still Here, I see him as a straight up acting genius and there is no way in hell I’ll ever stop liking him for the rest of my life.
I’m Still Here is the greatest Hollywood hoax I’ve maybe ever had the pleasure of observing. There is no way, ever, that anyone else could pull this off the way that Casey Affleck and Joaquin Phoenix have. It’s the most believable abusive self mockery ever! The humor that Casey and Joaquin share must be so dry, dangerous, and complex. I bet they have a ridiculous relationship in reality.
I can’t even say much about the actual movie itself because I don’t want to ruin anything. The way the movie unfolds may be exactly what you’re expecting, plotwise, but the plot it not what matters here. It’s the psychological observation of Joaquin himself and his satirical look at the world and his own life.
I will finish by saying I was the only one cracking up during the film’s very last sequence and it blew my mind that NO ONE else was “getting it”. I wonder how many of those people thought they were supposed to be getting emotional and taking the scenario seriously. Out of our group of 7 viewers, 2 or 3 people (all girls of course) still felt unsure about whether or not the footage was a hoax, or completely true to reality.
Only a truly talented actor could fool so many people so effectively. Joaquin Phoenix has really proved himself to be more important than the majority of Hollywood actors with this brave, personal step – I fully support him now.
