20000 DAYS ON EARTH
Nick Cave is a musician, author, screenwriter and film composer, but he's also Nick Cave.

This is why the upcoming docudrama "20,000 Days On Earth" is a suitable project for the australian auteur.

Nick Cave Doc '20000 Days on Earth'
“Nick would have never gone for a straightforward rock-doc,” co-director Iain Forsyth told The New York Times about the docudrama "20,000 Days On Earth." “We decided to go in a direction that combined reality with fantasy as seamlessly as possible — which, if you think about it, isn’t too far from the transaction between a rock star and his fans. People want desperately to enter the world Nick creates in his songs. You can look around when the Bad Seeds are playing and see precisely which version of Nick — the junkie, the outlaw, the lover — each person in the crowd wants to be.”

Though he’s never been a superstar, after four decades of making music there is no question that Nick Cave is a legend. Singer, songwriter and occasional composer, Cave has been playing in bands since he was in his teens, from his post-punk group The Birthday Party, to his back-to-basics side project Grinderman, to his solo work to his band for over 30 years, The Bad Seeds. Though his music has only ever crossed over into the mainstream a few times (the soundtrack staple “Red Right Hand” and Kylie Minogue duet “Where The Wild Roses Grow”), he has nevertheless amassed an army of dedicated fans all over the world. The new documentary “20,000 Days On Earth” is neither the career retrospective or concert film you might, but rather a snapshot of the musician, now 57, still trying to connect with his muse.
