The New Reality… by Elizabeth Searle
Casey Affleck now ‘admits’ his documentary on Joaquin Phoenix was a ‘hoax.’ Or no: some critics call it a hoax, some call it a fascinating look at Celebrity; Afleck himself calls it a ‘Gonzo’ documentary.’
And what layers of fakery could describe Ben Stiller’s Oscar Ceremony take-off on Phoenix’s own take-off on– what, exactly?
Director Affleck eagerly explained his real-life brother-in-law (or is that part faked too?):
“His performance is compelling, always watchable, manages to be repulsive and charming, believable in all emotions, completely committed, incredibly brave… How difficult to resist the cheap joke, the wink, the nudge…He has the tools for this. He has the goods in spades.”
What is the ‘this’ Joaquin has the tools for? With ‘Reality Shows’ and ‘documentaries’ employing the tools of fiction, what new twists can be concocted on the ‘new reality’ we now inhabit? WDYT?
