For several months last year, a bearded and bizarre Joaquin Phoenix had everyone wondering, "Has he gone insane?"
Now, there's finally an answer – sort of.
The theatrical trailer for I’m Still Here, the Casey Affleck-directed documentary about the actor, 35, has just been released, and it offers a peek into that strange time.
The preview, which features a man giving Phoenix a lesson about the journey of life (in an analogy that likens life to falling drops of mountain water), shows the unkempt actor partying, performing as a rapper, stressing out and attending church. A night-vision camera even captures him wrestling on a bed.
The most shocking moment? Seeing Phoenix’s giant white gut.
It’s still unclear whether this is more fiction than straight documentary, or if he's acting or not. But if that now- infamous 2009 TV interview with David Letterman is any indication, the film, which opens Sept. 10, is bound to be ... interesting.
