Movie Diary 9/23/2014

20,000 Days on Earth (Ian Forsyth, Jane Pollard, 2014). A documentary portrait of Nick Cave, who comes across just about the way you imagined he would.

Take Me to the River (Martin Shore, 2014). Another music doc, this one closer in form to the run we’ve seen the last decade. And it’s not as tight as Standing in the Shadows of Motown etc., but even with considerable scrappiness this catches some strong music-pleasure. The focus is Stax, the fabled Memphis studio.
