Jonah Hill has donned the director’s hat for the second time after Mid90s, and this time it is for a project that is very personal. Hill has quite often talked about his mental health issues in the past, and now he has documented the many sessions he has had with his longtime friend and therapist Phil Stutz, and talked about how his unorthodox ways have helped him improve his health.
“I’m just gonna acknowledge how odd this endeavour is — a patient making a movie about his therapist. But my life has gotten immeasurably better as a result of working with you. If it worked for me, maybe it will work for other people,” Hill says at the beginning of the trailer of the documentary that is titled, Stutz. The clip then takes you through discussions about Hill’s mental health journey and also examines the life and mindset of this famous psychiatrist.
The trailer sets a sombre mood and has drawn a positive response from the audience. Many took to Twitter to share how they are looking forward to seeing Hill in the documentary. A user wrote, “The best investment you can ever make for yourself can’t wait to watch this one.”

For people who don’t know Phil Stutz, he is one of the world’s leading psychiatrists who has helped many patients over 40 years. The film will introduce the audience to his signature visualization exercises, The Tools. Hill and Stutz discuss everything under the sun and it sure looks like a therapeutic experience. Interestingly, back in 2022, Hill revealed that he will not be promoting the documentary, citing his battle with anxiety and panic attacks as part of his decision.
The film is produced by Jonah Hill, Matt Dines, Alison Goodwin, Joaquin Phoenix, Chelsea Barnard, Diane Becker, Melanie Miller & Mark Monroe. Stutz will start streaming on Netflix on November 14, 2022.
