Joaquin Phoenix's Documentary Sounds Even More Horrifying Than We Imagined

Joaquin Phoenix's Documentary Sounds Even More Horrifying Than We Imagined-photo

Sorry, film critics; if you're chomping at the bit to dump all over Joaquin Phoenix's upcoming documentary, he already beat you to it.

New details about the Casey Affleck-directed I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix are emerging, and it appears that Phoenix's ill-considered foray into the rap world won't be the only yucky thing documented in the film. Affleck reportedly spent last week shopping the film around, and word is that it's quite the sordid affair:

"While some were apparently interested in bidding for I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix’s distribution rights, the shoppers left the screening perhaps even more mystified by Phoenix’s behavior than when they walked in. It’s far from the Joaquin Phoenix you’re used to seeing onscreen: snorting cocaine, ordering call girls, having oral sex with a publicist, treating his assistants abusively and rapping badly.

Several buyers said the film overflowed with Hollywood debauchery, including more male frontal nudity than you’d find in some gay porn films and a stomach-turning sequence in which someone feuding with Phoenix defecates on the actor while he’s asleep."

Well, that's one way to settle an argument, we suppose.

We're guessing that I'm Still Here will be a big hit in Germany, but will it fly in less scat-friendly markets? Share your predictions in the comments section.

    Americans prefer religious bias, bloody violence and gore over sh*t - without a doubt. Happy Germany!

    Allegedly, Joaquin Phoenix has been seen with Top Model, Christy Bella Joiner, at Lavo, Bardot Hollywood (VIP), and more recently, working together in a PETA campaign to reach High Fashion Designers to stop using animals in clothing. The media hype reports that Joaquin Phoenix dates Christy Bella, but she denies it. "Never happened,'" she tells a magazine. Describing Phoenix as a pal, when questioned, she said, "Joaquin is a a friend and he is brilliant; the film will be golden." Ultimately, she even joked about various tabloid reports: "Since all the dates we never had went so wonderful, maybe we should hang out sometime."

    Oh, Lala and Huh ... everybody knows that, when it come to scheisse-oriented content in movies, the Krauts are huge fans. Heck, you ever seen a German "shelf toilet?" That goose-stepping tribe likes to EXAMINE its leavings after it's deposited. As far as Joaquin's "lost year," f*ck him. He's got dough. Pops Warner's been through TWO lost years and you don't see anyone making a movie about him ... and those years are LITTERED with excess, hopelessness and darkness. But he still hasn't let anyone anyone defecate on him.
