Until is imbued with hope for a better world and free at Carriageworks until March 3 – so make a date to catch its drift.
Thank you to our volunteers for 2018
What can I say about the man that hasn’t already been said? Not much really, so let’s cover some well-trodden ground. The man is a genius, and, love him or hate him, you can’t deny the man has a talent for storytelling. Whether it be on the big screen (Lawless, The Proposition, and even a lesser known Gladiator sequel that never made it out of the blocks – there are a few synopses floating around the internet), in novels (And the Ass Saw the Angel and The Death of Bunny Munro), or his extensive work as a musician.
That Nick Cave is a genius and a legend of the Australian music scene is not in question. So talented is he that clearly he could have made a career just out of writing hard-edged, gritty, dusty and violent period pieces if he wanted to. Alas, he only has a short history as a writer of screenplays. Apart from Lawless his only other effort was 2005’s The Proposition (also directed by Australian John Hillcoat).
