Perfection. A 'meta' document not documentary on the alien creature we call Nick Cave. From its striking opening to its closing contemplation this is a work to remember. This may be what Sinofsky and Berlinger tried to accomplish with their Metallica tome a few years ago but this comes off as neither pretentious or navel gazing. The mix of self psychiatry, automobile revelations and music making is staggering.
Dude's an absolute musical and literature prodigy. A poet's poet & a humanistic cat full of swag and creativity.Shots that stood out>him eating Pizza with his twins and the melody of his "Say hello to my lil' frien(d)"/The ride with Kylie Minogue mirroring the one on Carax's Holy Motors.Kylie's cute story about Hutchence's myopia<3Cave as an Hitchcockian Tree.Nina Simone's demands of 'Cocaine, Champagne and Sausages'
nick cave is so bland when he babbles on about writting and the artistic value. the movie fails because he doesn't develop, we're always stuck between nick cave's world. he is surrounded by people, but they feel like puppets. the memory string that the movie dragged on was an interesting one, exploring it visually with imagery - photos and lost reels of his different performances... but that's it.
