I get why he did it. But I still hated it.
on March 7, 2014
It was a good career move for right after his amazing job in Draw the Line. It kept his name up in the air, and everyone guessing "What in the world is he doing?".
I don't think this was supposed to really be a movie. It would be better described as 'performance art'. At least that would make more sense since it went way past just film and spilled over into real life.
Just because I hate the movie doesn't mean I don't think Phoenix isn't a grade A actor. He's great. Even when I first saw him in Clay Pigeons. He's got what it takes to probably do anything he wants. And I think he just wanted to wipe the slate for a minute, and start over.
<shrug> Just a guess.
