Cave is certainly a riveting subject, though I'd guess that most folks would be hard pressed to name one of his songs. Don't let that, however, stop you from checking out this film. Like any good raconteur, Cave has a lifetime of stories, both deeply personal and ones touching on his life as a musician. In fact, much of the film's run time is just Cave chatting with his friends. It's kind of a shame though that the film doesn't take the opportunity to better showcase Cave's music. The performances that are in the film could very well open your ears to Cave's unique gravely, gloomy sound.
