With, “I'm Still Here” possibly in the running for worst movie of the year, Casey Affleck decided he better tell someone really fast that it is all a spoof and that it is not a documentary so don't blame Casey, the director if it is a really bad documentary.
“It’s a terrific performance, it’s the performance of his career.” That is what he told the New York Times. From the time Joaquin Phoenix walked on the stage at Letterman a few years ago to know, it has all been a gag. You know, something like Hunter S. Thompson. We, the audience were supposed to get the joke and know it was a joke because the camera techniques in the movie we have not seen get more sophisticated as the movie progresses. Oh, well, sure yeah, that is the first thing I would have looked at. The reviews for the film have been vicious and nasty and I wonder if they were great if Casey would have been so likely to volunteer that this was all performance and not a documentary.
