2005 Out Through the In Door : Nick Cave Superstar #2

"The Proposition" is a new Australian movie based on a script written 100% by Nick Cave himself:

"Set in the 1880s, the film opens in the middle of a frenzied gunfight between the police and a gang of outlaws. Charlie Burns (Guy Pearce) and his brother Mikey are captured by Captain Stanley (Ray Winstone). Together with their psychopathic brother Arthur (Danny Huston), they are wanted for a brutal crime. Stanley makes Charlie a seemingly impossible proposition in an attempt to bring an end to the cycle of bloody violence..."

Oh come on, it has NICK CAVE all over it! after a helpful writing-hand and a tiny role on John Hillcoat's disturbing "Ghosts... of the Civil Dead" (= The Australian equivalentt to HBO's almighty OZ) back in '88, Cave returns to the movie scene, and this time - he's all alone with a pen and probably a deep paper cut, which gained him some well-earned respect from the London Film Festival as well. Yet another Cave event this 2005 - oh, happy day.

"come and get me, motherf*ckers!"
