An emotional and remarkably intimate film covering the production process of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' sixteenth studio album, Skeleton Key, following the tragic death of Cave's son Arthur.
Directed by Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, which Cave and Warren Ellis also provided the score for) and beautifully shot in Black-and-White (both in 2-D and in 3-D), One More Time With Feeling was originally intended as a conceptual performance documentary à la Jonathan Demme's Talking Heads concert film Stop Making Sense, but according to its director it became "something much more significant" once he started conducting candid interviews with both the band and the Cave family.
The impact of Arthur's untimely death is felt in every frame and explored effectively through these interviews with Cave and his wife Susie Bick, as well as through behind-the-scenes footage, studio performances and "intermittent narration and improvised rumination" by Cave himself. The results are stark, fragile and raw, and a true testament to an artist trying to find his way through the darkness.
One of 2016's best and most moving documentaries...
"By the time the closing frames roll by – including a final kick-in-the-guts edit – all of the austerity of Cave's public personality seems to have melted away, the barriers to feeling demolished. It's an impressive spectacle, if not a happy one."
Andrew Pulver, The Guardian
