TOM's Film Club: 20,000 Days on Earth (15) on Monday 21st May 2018
Shot primarily in Brighton and documenting a day in the life of one of its most famous residents, 20,000 Days on Earth is an audacious look-behind-the-curtain experience of Nick Cave, both his life and career, fictional or otherwise.
Directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, 20,000 Days on Earth is not so much a documentary as it is a surreal biographical portrait of one of alt-rock’s most enigmatic and influential figures. The film focuses on Nick Cave as he reaches this strange milestone in his life, using the medium of film to express and examine his own legacy to mark this 20,000th day (somewhere over 54 years), but it’s also about his music, the writing process, growing older and family life in Brighton.
Comprised from a series of daily routines like exercise and therapy sessions, as well as recording sessions, live performance and in-car conversations with various people and artists from Cave’s past (including Warren Ellis, Ray Winston and Kylie Minogue), this is a must-see for both Bad Seed aficionados and fans of unconventional documentary story-telling.
'Less of a biography than a widescreen installation with script and music (Cave’s co-writing credit confirms the artifice), this flits between handsome neo-noir pastiche and ripe psychological melodrama [...] As much as this is a film about Cave, it is also a cinematic portrait of Brighton or, more precisely, the idea of Brighton'.
Mark Kermode, The Guardian
