Magnolia Pictures looking to pick up wacky rap documentary with Joaquin Phoenix

06.17.2010

When it was revealed that Joaquin Phoenix lost his marbles and grew a crazy hobo beard for a rap documentary directed by Casey Affleck, I've been waiting for said documentary.

Affleck now has a studio interested in picking up the film. Magnolia Pictures are currently in talks to distribute the documentary.

The film apparently had a massive effect on those from the studio who saw it during a lunchtime screening at WME Entertainment last month. Apparently the crazy shit that went on during the documentary won them over. Scenes like Phoenix snorting what looked like coke off the boob of a prostitute. Amongst other things like lots of full frontal male nudity, an oral sex scene, ordering call girls, being abusive to assistants, and someone pooping on Phoenix while passed out. Yikes.

Sounds like it might out do anything Sacha Baron Cohen would ever plan, but might be on the same self-indulgent level as Vincent Gallo's BROWN BUNNY. However, with Casey Affleck as the helmer, I just can't see it being as bad as it sounds.

I guess this thing will continue to remain a mystery until the documentary (more like mockumentary) comes out.

Extra Tidbit: Is this something you will check out? Oh, and remember his David Letterman appearance or his infamous "rap concert" in L.A.?

At the very least....

It will put Cohen in his place. His movies are annoying and not funny and people only like them for shock value. Sounds like this movies shock value will make Cohen look like Disney.

Why not?

Sounds more interesting than another Moore or Cohen "movie".

Brown bunny is awesome, you just didn't get it, man...

I thought

this "mockumentary" would be a smart commentary on the cult of celebrity. What a disappointment, it sounds terrible.

I will definitely check this out, Phoenix is always gold and with Affleck directing I think that it will turn out to be a good flick.

If word of mouth is good I might check this out. I like Affleck and Phoenix, but the over-the-top gross-out humor gags just isn't my thing. I hope Phoenix eventually gets back to acting in actual movies though.
