A serious question; how on Earth did Joaquin Phoenix not get an Oscar nomination for this film let alone THE Oscar? This is surely one of the greatest performances of our time. I'm Still Here is performance art and social commentary. Directed by Phoenix's brother-in-law Casey Affleck, this mockumentary chronicles the public implosion of Phoenix's celebrity. His retirement from acting, his transition to hip hop music, his ridicule and his inner turmoil. It's a wallop of the movie and it's entirely fake. Thats not a spoiler by the way because Affleck & Phoenix both revealed their secret as part of the film's press junket. If you weren't aware of it all being a hoax then I'm not sure how convincing it would be because there are moments which do seem very put on but having said that, so much of it is totally convincing. Again I ask, where was Joaquin's Oscar nomination for best actor?
