I’M STILL HERE Joaquin Phoenix’s doc­u­men­tary of his ca­reer-shred­ding self-de­struc­tive and drug-ad­dled ner­vous break­down is less a hoax and more an ex­hausted mid­dle fin­ger to fame, for­tune, and rep­u­ta­tion. Sand­wiched be­tween grainy footage of Phoenix hav­ing sex with pros­ti­tutes and more grainy footage of his as­sis­tants defe­cat­ing on him are long, painful takes of his lu­di­crous at­tempt to be­come a rap star and score a record deal with Sean “Diddy” Combs. Yes, Phoenix may have staged much of this film, but the anger that ac­com­pa­nies him in ev­ery frame seems noth­ing but real. Rated R. 108 min­utes. The Screen, Santa Fe. (Casey Sanchez) See re­view, Page 66.

THE TOWN Ben Af­fleck earned a sec­ond ca­reer as a di­rec­tor with 2007’s ex­cel­lent Gone Baby Gone, and now he’s here with an­other fea­ture. Based on a novel by Chuck Ho­gan, it re­volves around a com­bustible crew of bank rob­bers in (where else?) Bos­ton who are try­ing to evade the law. Af­fleck, Jon Hamm, Jeremy Ren­ner, and Re­becca Hall star. Rated R. 125 min­utes. Re­gal

Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola; Reel Deal, Los Alamos; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. (Not re­viewed)
