I’m Still Here (2010) is a mockumentary about Joaquin Phoenix giving up acting to become a rapper. It sounds like a hilarious enough concept, but it’s a huge let down. Although Joaquin does a great job playing the crazy persona he invented for himself for the film, nothing else is really worth watching. The set up was successful only because of the media, who just love soaking up crazy for ratings, but nothing else was really intriguing or enjoyable to watch. What starts out as an ambition just ends up with Joaquin whining to himself about how he fucked up, which gets pretty old pretty fast. There are a few worthwhile scenes, including Joaquin entering a rap battle at a club only because it highlights how difficult it is to be rapper, especially a freestyle rapper. Then there was this scene that had me chuckling and which I thought was enjoyable. By the end of the film, the movie has just turned out to be Jackass meets an uninteresting documentary meets self-pity. Maybe it would have been more interesting if they had been able to keep mum about it being fake, but as is this movie isn’t worth it.
