20.000 reasons to be Nick Cave
Posted: Nov 13 2014
"I stopped to be human in the late twentieth century". And he’s right because for many of us he is a divinity. Nick Cave (Australia, 1957) defined himself in this way in the documentary about his life, '20, 000 days on Earth', a kind of film noir about his history, his music, his vices and even what he eats. The name of the film responds to the number of days that the Australian singer has lived since his birth until the time of recording his album 'Push the Sky Away' (2013).
The documentary premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, is an aesthetic and musical plea of the Cave’s life and is directed by Ian Forsyth and Jane Pollard, two video-artists who have created a dreamy film and sometimes even humorous. The film' aesthetics is highlighted like a nineties Tarantino film in some moments, and others as if it was exposed to any extreme Instagram filter. It talks about a Nick Cave who loves, who drives a eighties Jaguar XJ and who confesses that a girlfriend in the past dressed him as a woman. In the documentary of his life appears some of his friends in recent years, as well as artists such as Kylie Minogue, who shares whith him funny and sexy moments. Two different musical icons together in a film that has got great reviews and tells us who is really Nicholas Edward Cave and his henchmen in The Bad Seeds.
