A meditation narrative reflection of Nick Cave's process. A history that resists the narrative structure and shows the poet grasping at sensual intuitions. Filmed lovingly and richly raw that showcases the imperfections and hesitant fits of existence. This is a portrait of a self-portrait and the viewer can get lost and/or bored in this hall of mirrors music doc. Enter at your own risk. Written by thegoetresar

Did You Know?


Nick Cave and Andrew Dominik had an agreement in which Dominick could shoot anything he wanted and ask any question, and Cave would be able to cut whatever he didn't like.

After seeing the film again with an audience, Cave embraced it as "a gift" to himself, his wife Susie and his deceased son Arthur. See more »


Nick Cave: [Narrating] Most of us don't want to change. What we do want is sort of modifications on the original model. We keep on being ourselves, but hopefully better versions of ourselves.

A breathtaking treatise on creative work after trauma
20 May 2018 | by shadywilburySee all my reviews

I came late to Nick Cave, but the premise of this documentary piqued my interest soon after its release. Owing to the restriction of the initial 'one night only' showing, I wasn't able to catch it until now.

Having watched it on DVD, I can now honestly say I am glad I have done so. Nick Cave is a very interesting man, and he demands a certain respect which is evident in the way this documentary has been made.

The use of black and white cinematography is jarring at first, but it soon becomes apparent that this is the only way it could be.

The documentary feels intimate, but manages not to be voyeuristic - a triumph by Dominick and his team.

There is much here for the Cave fan, the casual viewer and the creative alike.
