It’s neither fiction nor documentary, this portrait of the mercurial bandleader, singer and writer Nick Cave might just be the creation of a new genre. Ostensibly a portrait of Cave, with embellishments from band members – particularly an hilarious Warren Ellis – and celebrities who have worked with him (including Kylie Minogue and Ray Winstone), Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard’s film claims to be documentary, but fictions soon emerge. From Cave’s sessions with an analyst and a visit to the Nick Cave archive, Forsyth and Pollard, with the active participation of Cave and his cohorts, have created a film that examines the very nature of fame. It’s riveting to watch and Cave is the most disarming of guides. ★★★★ "This is a treat, and not just for his fans" - Patrick Smith, The Telegraph ★★★★ "Curiously seductive" - Guy Lodge, Empire ★★★★ "Flits between handsome neo-noir pastiche and ripe psychological melodrama" - Mark Kermode's Film of the Week, The Observer
