‘One More Time With Feeling’

Poignant and devastatingly honest, One More Time With Feeling is a deeply personal documentary of a studio-bound Nick Cave recording the album Skeleton Tree just months after the tragic accident that killed his teenage son, Arthur.

Filmed in auspicious black and white, the camera tracks Cave and his fellow musicians in the starkness of the studio, an affect heightened by rumination by Cave and snapshots of family life filmed in their all-white painted Brighton home. With many of the featured songs rewritten after Arthur’s death and exploring themes of death, loss and personal grief, director Andrew Dominik (Blonde, Killing Them Softly) captures intimate moments through Cave’s plaintiff vocals.

With its underlying sadness, One More Time With Feeling is an emotional journey that is both controlled and magisterial, mirrored by both Cave and his wife, Susie in those private moments captured away from the studio.
