"***** IS JOAQUIN PHOENIX PUTTING US ON? It’s either a doc capturing Hollywood’s excess at its most embarrassingly flatulent, or it’s the performance of a lifetime. ANY WAY YOU SLICE IT, HE’S BLOWN OPEN A DOOR ON CELEB CULTURE. He must be called the Brando of his generation."

-Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

"RIVETING, UNFLINCHINGLY HONEST, SCARY, ARTFUL AND FASCINATING. GRADE A-."

-Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

"RIVETING. I COULDN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF IT. MY GUESS IS THAT IT WILL KNOCK YOU SIDEWAYS."

-Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"THERE’S A THRILLING MADNESS TO PHOENIX’S METHOD. I can’t wait for his next big act."

-David Edelstein, New York

"IF THE MOVIE IS A FAKE, THE FILMMAKERS DESERVE OSCARS FOR CREATIVITY. The movie feels utterly real and transparent and leaves an idelible impression."

-Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald

"UTTERLY FASCINATING."

-Leslie Felperin, Variety

"The great Joaquin debate — is he crazy like a loon, or like a fox?."

-Richard Corliss, Time

"Audiences who drink their documentaries straight beware - THIS IS ONE POTENT MIXED COCKTAIL."

-Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

"Hoax or no hoax, Phoenix gives an all-out performance, which begs the question he asked himself at the beginning of the documentary: IS THE ACTOR PLAYING A ROLE OR IS A ROLE PLAYING THE ACTOR?"

-Sherri Jennings, Washington Post

About The Film

Oscar®-nominated actor Casey Affleck in his directorial debut together with fellow Oscar®-nominee Joaquin Phoenix blow the roof off of conventional filmmaking in this unique and groundbreaking experimental project. Joaquin gives a powerful performance as “JP,” an out of control Hollywood celebrity who commits career suicide in announcing that he is “retiring” from acting, while at the top of his game, to become a hip-hop star. JP shuts himself off from the protection and better judgment of his agent, manager and publicist, and sets out on a jaw-dropping journey into a decadent frenzy of sex, drugs and outrageousness, as he tries desperately to break away from his old celebrity persona to develop his rap career. Mired in self-doubt and harsh criticism from the media, he struggles to find his identity.
