20.000 Days on Earth (2014)

★★★★ Watched 19 Dec, 2019

A hypnotic and contemplative documentary about a creative process and personal life musings of Australian songwriter and musician Nick Cave. We follow him through his day, having meals, visiting friends, his therapist, his archive and recording music. Straightforward snippets of his life are interwoven with his stream of consciousness reflecting on moments from the past, why makes him do what he does and success.

I was never particularly a fan of his music, but I like his several songs and I like his perpetually calming voice and unimposing dark nature. He comes across like a genuine person and I was surprised how much I enjoyed this documentary. My favorite song is probably his collaboration with Kylie Minogue “Where the Wild Roses Grow” which is briefly discussed in this film as well.
