Joaquin Phoenix’s “documentary” film I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix, opens Sept. 10, if anyone cares. Joaquin Phoenix looks like he cares, assuming he is awake. I’m sure a better poll might have been “Is Joaquin Phoenix awake?” As I gaze upon the vast wasteland of Phoenix’s beard, my question is not the usual “What am I looking at?” but rather “What is missing?” (Besides one-third of the font.)

In the case of the mockumentary’s bizarre promotional campaign spotted in New York, in which stencils of Phoenix are presented with no context, the answer was “everything.” With the poster, at least we see a title, two names, and the vague suggestion of bunny ears. I suppose anything at this point is better PR for the movie than another sexual harrassment suit filed against actor-director Casey Affleck, right? Vote below.
