    The documentary that follows former actor Joaquin Phoenix as he transitioned from actor rapper in a "is he serious or isn't he?" career move or ill-advised publicity stunt is fraught with problems, the least of which is subject matter! Director (and actor) Casey Affleck, who lensed the doc and is the brother-in-law of Phoenix, has been hit with a $2 million sexual harassment lawsuit by producer Amanda White, who claimed that Affleck acted inappropriately on the set of I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix. White says that she encountered uninvited and unwelcome advances in the workplace! In response, Michael Plonsker, a litigator for Affleck and his production company Flemmy Productions, told Hollywood Reporter that the suit is a bunch of, well, shit! "The allegations brought upon our clients are preposterous and without merit. Ms. White was terminated from the production over a year ago. She and her lawyers believe that this maliciously and erroneously filed complaint will cause the producers to succumb to her outrageous and baseless demands. She is mistaken. The complaint will be vigorously defended and cross-claims will be filed against her."

    Do you think Affleck is a perv or does this suit have no merit? And do you actually give a rat's ass about the subject of the documentary?
