      Released May 11, 2022 1 hr. 45 min. Documentary Music List
      100% 39 Reviews Tomatometer 94% Fewer than 50 Ratings Audience Score Shot on location in London & Brighton, Andrew Dominik's new feature documentary THIS MUCH I KNOW TO BE TRUE captures Nick Cave and Warren Ellis' exceptional creative relationship as they bring to life the songs from their last two studio albums, Ghosteen (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds) and Carnage (Nick Cave & Warren Ellis). In this document of their first ever performances of these albums, filmed in spring 2021 ahead of their UK tour, we see the two, accompanied by singers and string quartet, as they nurture each song into existence. The film features a special appearance by close friend and long-term collaborator, Marianne Faithfull. Shot in color by Andrew Dominik and with cinematography by Robbie Ryan, THIS MUCH I KNOW TO BE TRUE is a companion piece to Dominik's 2016 film One More Time with Feeling. It reaches into the deep friendship and personal relationship between Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, something glimpsed in the 2014 Cave pseudo-documentary, 20,000 Days on Earth. The film will prove to be another significant moment in the journeys of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, capturing the mood and spirit of the pair as they move through a new, optimistic phase.

      Patricia J The very best parts were interviews with Nick and Warren. I wish there had been more of them. Seeing the film in the shadow of Nick's son's death made for a sad strangeness. Overall, I'm definitely glad we went. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/17/22 Full Review Tom Real hope and how to access it Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/14/22 Full Review Timm Spinn Gorgeous cinematography and production. If anything, I wish there would have been a little more dialogue. Those were some of my favorite parts. But overall, wonderful. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/12/22 Full Review william k Excellent music documentary is also a good portrait of the artist Nick Cave, his productive process with Warren Ellis including a full musical performance; essential watching for fans. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review cyrus z Wow! Far more interesting and engaging than I expected, even for a Nick Cave fan like myself. The movie itself, the music and the performances are exceptional.

      Edward Porter Times (UK) The performances are beautifully filmed; grandeur without pretentiousness. Rated: 4/5 Aug 8, 2022 Full Review Glenn Kenny New York Times A rather fun Nick Cave movie might not have been on your 2022 bingo card, but here we are. Jul 7, 2022 Full Review Chuck Bowen Slant Magazine The accumulating effect of this airy and resonant film’s formal devices is that of a heartbroken artist learning to reengage with society. Rated: 3.5/4 Jul 5, 2022 Full Review Tom Cassidy Common Sense Media Despite being mostly performances, the film is at its best during the relaxed documentary segments. Rated: 3/5 Mar 31, 2023 Full Review Andrew Trendell NME (New Musical Express) ... This film is worth any Cave fan’s time – especially for the dark euphoria of ‘White Elephant’ and the fire-and-brimstone rave of ‘Hand Of God’ – but Dominik again gets close to show us the heart behind the art. Rated: 4/5 Dec 17, 2022 Full Review Prahlad Srihari News9 Live (India) It continues the narrative from One More Time with Feeling, framing Cave's acceptance of his grief. Watching the film through the lens of its emotional prequel is unavoidable. The mournful air may not be as concentrated, but it lingers in the shadows. Aug 29, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
