It's official. Casey Affleck's doc about Joaquin Phoenix,I'm Still Here, will be coming to theaters near you on September 10th thanks to Magnolia Pictures. Described as "a striking portrayal of a tumultuous year in the life of internationally acclaimed actor Joaquin Phoenix," I'm Still Here follows Phoenix's announced retirement from acting and intentions to begin a hip-hop career. It also documents his very public and strange behavior, which you can read more about in this handy timeline.

Phoenix's bizarre behavior on David Letterman and other venues was documented by Affleck in what the director has said is categorically not an Andy Kaufman-like fake-out. Was Phoenix melting down in front of our eyes? Was it an act? Katey Rich interviewed Phoenix during the press days for Two Lovers, and she reported, "The mumbling, barely speaking shaggy man from David Letterman's show earlier this week is not who I interviewed that same day, even though the beard and unkempt hair and sunglasses were all firmly in place."
