Documentary 2014 93 mins
Director: Iain Forsyth
The myths and minutiae of musician Nick Cave are explored in the course of this fictional portrait, following 24 hours in the life of a cultural icon. Inspired by a line in an old notebook, Cave ruminates on a life spent in artistic endeavour, looking back on the many diverse inspirations and collaborators (Ray Winstone, Kylie Minogue) that have contributed to his incessant creative cycle.
In allowing Cave a free expressionist take on his own legend, directors Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard construct a fascinating testament to the spirit of self-invention and embellished biography. The result is a stylish and sophisticated tribute to a singular talent.
