"Something happens onstage," Cave says, "where you forget who you are and become someone else." As much as any documentary can, 20,000 Days on Earth allows us to bear witness to what goes on in that process.
The title refers to the fact that the day chronicled is ostensibly Cave's 20,000th alive, though the movie is so slowly paced that 20,000 days seems more like the running time.
Near the end of the movie, Cave talks about living in the 'shimmering space' where imagination and reality intersect. He's talking about words and music, but he could be talking about 20,000 Days on Earth.
An intelligent and revealing look at one of rock's last true iconoclasts.
You don't just meet and learn about Nick Cave in "20,000 Days," you feel him.
Audience Reviews for 20,000 Days on Earth
This revealing, funny and well edited film is a must-see for fans of Nick Cave and for all those who would like to take an intimate look into an artist's creative process and motivation, even if the charm wears off fast and the doc is also stuffed with a tad too many concert scenes.
Essentially Nick Cave having a ninety minute wank.
But if anybody deserves to have a movie made about themselves masturbating into the camera, It's Nick Cave.
Nick Cave often produces music or books that end up being complete rubbish but you have to give him credit for trying and sometimes he succeeds in very interesting ways. Thankfully not a typical doc, this is a unique and fascinating look back at one man's life.
