Joaquin Phoenix

If you haven't seen this, you need to:

From my vantage point, only one of two explanations will do here:

1: He's on something. Maybe masking some sort of depression or other trauma.

but I think it is more likely that

2. He's faking it to get attention for some reason. He seems pretty out of it for most of the interview, but a couple of times you see his wit rise up which indicates his mind is alert. And when you're as bright as we know he is, I don't think it a reach to suppose he could pull this off.

But maybe my better angels are deceiving me.

What say you?
