Synopsis

What happened to Joaquin Phoenix? How did the seemingly shy, intense actor go from young heartthrob to Oscar nominee to punchline to pop culture mystery? Was it a breakdown? A retreat? A hoax? Fellow actor Casey Affleck gets close enough for an accurate look at what was really happening.

Our take

Is there a stranger, more unpredictable leading man today than Joaquin Phoenix? We have our favorites — Two Lovers, The Master, Her — but no film is so purely captures his style than this stunt pseudo-documentary about being caught in the headlights of celebrity. In HD.
