Giveaways RT124

Book: Alex Frayne, Adelaide Noir

From Adelaide’s stylish Wakefield Press comes Adelaide Noir, an evocative large-format photographic account of the city by local artist Alex Frayne. Filmmaker Matthew Bate writes in his introduction, “[Alex has] found a portal into our sleep. He’s able to take snapshots that he can bring back and show us. It sounds like the plot of a bad 80s sci-fi film but these one-frame narratives are cinematically compelling. Long exposures reveal the shimmer of events just missed or about to happen.”

DVD: Nick Cave—20,000 Days on Earth

Inventively directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, this fictionalised documentary about a day in the life of the musician and writer offers us a Nick Cave persona to ponder. Get out of bed with him, deal with the kids, go to therapy, to a recording session, perform in a concert and bump into friends, like Kylie Minogue. The UK Guardian described it as “[l]ess of a biography than a widescreen installation with script and music (Cave’s co-writing credit confirms the artifice), this flits between handsome neo-noir pastiche and ripe psychological melodrama” (21 Sept, 2014).

DVD: The Double

Directed by UK actor Richard Ayoade (The IT Crowd, Gadget Man), who also made the acclaimed Submarine, The Double is about a young man who is faced with the frightening arrival of a more confident, identical version of himself at work—no one else notices. Based on Dostoyevsky’s The Double with a touch of Cyrano de Bergerac, this is an intelligent dark comedy with Jesse Eisenberg playing self and other, with Mia Wasikowska as the object of their joint desire.
