Reviews for this film from our members:
Chris Barsanti @ Film Journal International
Excerpt: Goth rocker turned postmodern bluesman Nick Cave turns himself inside-out for this transformative, electrifying documentary about the dark and often mundane wizardry of creativity.
Joshua Brunsting @ The CriterionCast
Alan Mattli @ Facing the Bitter Truth [German]
Excerpt: 20,000 Days on Earth’ isn’t interested in objective facts, favouring instead a more free-flowing characterisation of a fascinating larger-than-life character. Simon Miraudo @ Quickflix
Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
Excerpt: One of the most aggressively self-indulgent things you’ll ever come across, and without anything resembling a story it eventually becomes a chore to sit through; memories of Bob Dylan’s infamous Renaldo and Clara occasionally sprang to mind.
Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk
Excerpt: …an astonishing dissection of why Nick Cave does what he does…his songs have been full of confessions, both clear-eyed and abstract, yet he’s never delved so deep nor shared so much.
