Joaquin Phoenix film 'no hoax'

The actor turned director Casey Affleck has told the Venice Film Festival that his film, I'm Still Here, is not a spoof. The fly-on-the-wall documentary follows the actor Joaquin Phoenix from the moment he announced his retirement from acting in 2008 to embark on a career as a hip hop musician.

The film features appearances from actor Ben Affleck and rapper Kanye West as well as Phoenix's much reported appearance on David Letterman's talk show.
