Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard
This documentary was so powerful in validating that desire to want to be somebody else at different times in our lives. It exposes what inner turmoil looks like, what grief looks like, what turning yourself on and off looks like. By the time you’re done watching this film, you will realize that all of the austerity of Nick Cave’s public personality seems to have melted away, the barriers to feeling deeply demolished. We go through a therapy session with him, recording in the studio, time with his family, breakfast with a best friend, a live concert and scattered personal encounters. What I love about this documentary is how poetic it is—it shifts respectfully through the landscape of his own legacy.
Watch if you like:
Madonna. Reading poetry. Therapy. Unconventional ways of thinking. Transforming yourself.
