Verdi Club: 20,000 Days on Earth

By Kit Macdonald



Published on January 1, 2024

Another chance to enjoy Nick Cave's fascinating, funny, deliciously self-indulgent fictionalised documentary, in which the Australian legend takes us through a day in the life of a musician who looks like Nick Cave, sounds like Nick Cave and lives in Brighton like Nick Cave.

The format is fascinatingly constructed, beginning with Cave waking with a start at home, having a psychoanalysis session, recording music in his studio, watching Scarface with his twin sons, and playing a live show. There are also personal encounters that veer from the very natural (a home-cooked lunch with his longtime friend and collaborator Warren Ellis) to the fabulously unreal (car journeys with famous friends including Ray Winstone and Kylie Minogue). A visual, conceptual and musical treat.
