Nick Cave Documentary Director Felt Tremendous Responsibility

(Classic Rock) Director Andrew Dominik recalls the "tremendous responsibility" he felt when making the heartbreaking Nick Cave documentary, One More Time With Feeling.

The film captures the singer-songwriter's grief as he comes to terms with the death of his teenage son Arthur, after he fell from a cliff last year. It includes interviews and footage which "delve into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording" of his latest album, Skeleton Tree - some of which was written in the aftermath.

Dominik says the film was designed as a way for Cave to tell people of his loss without facing the media, rather than "a work of entertainment" - but he admits they were both still "concerned" about how the project would come across to people.

He tells Rolling Stone: "I felt tremendous responsibility because it was his tragedy, it was his money, it was his record, and I had to come up with something coherent. I wasn't sure if that was possible,"

"The biggest concern we had was, is there something kind of disgusting about making a film whose centre is this terrible tragedy? There's a way of looking at it like we're exploiting Arthur's death to sell records." Read more here.
