Tonight, and for the next three nights, film and music lovers can catch the exceptional new Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds documentary 'One More Time With Feeling' in cinemas. The film was made in the final stages of recording on the band's new album, 'Skeleton Tree' (out tomorrow).
Cave wrote the album in the wake of losing his 15-year-old son Arthur in a tragic accident in July 2015. He invited the director Andrew Dominik ('The Assassination of Jesse James’) to make the film partly as a way of avoiding talking about his personal life when the album came out. As a result the shadow of grief and of a world turned upside down hang heavily over both the film and the music, and some of the film's most difficult scenes show Cave and his wife Susie Bick talking about losing Arthur and the devastating effect on their lives.
'One More Time With Feeling' is raw and artful, a beautiful portrait of a band at work and an upsetting and honest glimpse of a family coping with loss. Grab this brief opportunity to see it on the big screen.
