I don’t very often blog just to enthuse, but today is an exception. I’ve been to see the film 20,000 Days on Earth, directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard about a sort-of day in the life of Nick Cave, and it is just fantastic. Visceral, funny, weird, lots of rain and sea stuff, amazing scenes of Nick Cave singing, a slightly freaky psychoanalyst – my god he listens intently – Kylie Minogue, and a voice-over from Nick Cave musing on memories, performing and writing. If you love writing, go see the film to hear him talk about writing his songs, it’s a beautiful account of the process – even if you don’t like his music – but how could you not. Fantastic cinema.
