"Nick Cave has won the inaugural Gucci prize for script writing at the Venice Film Festival for 'The Proposition'. The criteria for the award, made on Friday (September 8), was any internationally acclaimed artist for outside cinema who has made a remarkable contribution to a film in any capacity in the previous 18 months."
Does those criteria strike anyone else as somewhat suspicious/ridiculous? I love it, of course, but one wonders if Nick Cave's agent works for the film festival. Anyway, the good news is that he plans to follow up with...a comedy set in the Outback! He is just itching to be Advanced if you ask me.
