20,000 Days On Earth (★★★★ DVD/Blu Review)

20000daysonearthSquareIain Forsyth and Jane Pollard’s documentary about Nick Cave is every bit as mercurial, maverick and iconoclastic as the 20,000-day-old goth rocker/screenwriter/novelist himself. Stylistically, it seems as scattershot as Cave’s songwriting doodle pad, but don’t be fooled: it’s as expertly calibrated as his most masterful compositions, and just as laced with wit, wisdom and experiential wealth.

EXTRAS ‘Making of’ and outtakes (including Nick and Kylie performing “Where the Wild Roses Grow” at Camden’s Koko), unseen at press time.

FILM ★★★★
