The L.A. Times speaks to buyers who have attended private screenings of the film I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix, and nobody is quite sure what to make of it. Billed as a documentary, the film is an account of the actor’s quest to make it as a rapper, including bizarre moments such as Phoenix’s silent and bearded appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.
