This film is either a masterpiece which skewers the vacuity of modern celebrity or it's a shallow vanity-project made by people with too much money and time on their hands. But which is it? Blowed if I know.

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.

Misses the point of a mockumentary by lacking in any humour. 2/10

In 2009, the movie world was confused and in uproar as Joaquin Phoenix announced that he would be retiring from acting, and that 2008's Two Lovers would be his final appearance on screen. To add a touch more of the bizarre into the mix, Phoenix would also be pursuing his apparent lifelong dream of being a rapper. His good friend and brother-in-law Casey Affleck would film everything, and as the pounds piled onto Phoenix, and his beard grew even more ridiculous, it gradually became obvious that this in fact was a big joke.

So the film itself follows Phoenix from his initial announcement of retirement from acting, to his attempts at getting a meeting with rap mogul P. Diddy, in order for him to produce his album. In between this, we see him self-destruct as the realisation hits him that he is indeed a crap rapper, and that everyone considers him a joke, from celebrities (Ben Stiller, David Letterman), to his best friend who ends up betraying him. We also see Phoenix sniffing cocaine from the breast of a stripper, fall of a stage whilst doing a rap gig, and have someone s**t on his face while he sleeps.

The big question is - what's the point? Well, it's quite an intelligent commentary of the nature of celebrity, and how people can buy into anything that they're told. Phoenix and Affleck apparently came up with the idea when they discovered that audiences didn't realise that 'reality' shows were scripted. The other important question is - does it work? Given Phoenix's heroic commitment to the film and the physical and mental strain he must have endured for the cause, you would hope so. Disappointingly, the answer is a resounding no.

Don't get me wrong, moments of this film I found bordered on absolute genius.

'I'm Still Here', starring Oscar-nominated actor Joaquin Phoenix as himself is to some a load of crap. To others, and let the hecklers be dismissive, who think otherwise it is a witty statement about the celebrity-obsessed world we live in: fact. Viewers didn't have a clue what to think when Joaquin announced his retirement from the world of acting on the David Letterman show, in order to pursue a career in hip hop. Surely even those in favour of the film could never have guessed what this intelligent Hollywood star was up to beforehand. What potentially has destroyed this actor's career, is actually perhaps his greatest triumph and his only renowned experiment. Joaquin wanted to see what the response would be if he reinvented himself into what mainstream society would perceive to be avant garde. Would the legions of fans and admirers, who fall over themselves when they see celebrities, most of the time simply because they are celebrities, still follow him with loyalty no matter how crazy and obnoxious he became? What Phoenix was trying to unearth was how far the obsession of celebrity can go. Is there a particular formula or set of characteristics that spawns this mass-following of people in the public eye? Or on the other hand, do people continue to worship people, who perhaps have no talent other than their own self-indulgence, simply because there is a mob of paparazzi stalking them? Joaquin made himself the opposite of the handsome A-Lister he is known as, by growing a forest of hippie hair and delving into the disgusting habits that are usually attached to someone who is generally outcast by society for being a 'pig'.

But the cameras didn't stop flashing did they? The press and the masses continued to scrutinise him, only with less adoration and more mockery.
