MON­DAY 20,000 DAYS ON EARTH

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

10.35PM, ABC2 Don’t miss the first three min­utes of this un­ortho­dox doco on Nick Cave. Oth­er­wise you’ll miss a rapid-fire cap­sule of the pre­vi­ous 19,999 days in the life of the sem­i­nal Aus­tralian singer-song­writer. If you’re not a Cave fan, this open­ing se­quence is cru­cial, be­cause it’s as close as the film comes to de­liv­er­ing straight fac­tual data on the man. In­stead, the film­mak­ers de­pict what they ac­cu­rately call “a myth­i­cal, yet con­tem­po­rary day in the life” of their sub­ject. In the 24 hours cov­ered, Cave will let the au­di­ence in on some se­crets, and slam the door on oth­ers.
