In this visual essay style documentary, intimate audio of journalist Michael Azerrad's interviews with Kurt Cobain is played over more recently photographed footage of Cobain's Washington state homes and haunts.
Introspective artist Blake is buckling under the weight of fame, professional obligations and a mounting feeling of isolation. Dwarfed by towering trees, Blake slowly makes his way through dense woods. He scrambles down an embankment to a fresh spring and undresses for a short swim. The next morning he returns to his house, an elegant, if neglected, stone mansion. Many people are looking for Blake--his friends, his managers and record label, even a private detective--but he does not want to be found. In the haze of his final hours, Blake will spend most his time by himself. He avoids the people who are living in his house, who approach him only when they want something, be it money or help with a song. He hides from one concerned friend and turns away another. He visits politely with a stranger from the Yellow Pages sales department, and he ducks into an underground rock club. He wanders through the woods and he plays a new song, one last rock and roll blowout. Finally, alone in the ... Written by

Gus Van Sant had originally intended to make a direct bio-pic of Kurt Cobain in the mid-1990's but ran into legal obstruction from Cobain's widow, Courtney Love. Undeterred, Van Sant met with Love to discuss some ideas for the film, as well as her possible involvement. Though the two actually became friends and discussed the film for years, Van Sant eventually realized that Love was too devastated by Cobain's death to ever collaborate on the film or even allow a bio-pic to ever be made and adapted his ideas into this fictionalized story.

One of the LDS missionaries that visits the house is wearing a light blue shirt. LDS missionaries are only permitted to wear non-decorative white shirts with dark pants/suits, and a conservative tie. The missionaries also carried no pamphlets, visual aids, appointment books, or their own complete sets of scriptures, which is highly unlikely for door-to-door proselytizing. See more »

The slowest, most boring, piece of film ever waisted!
This "movie" (and I use that term loosely) is the slowest, most boring waist of time I've ever spent in my entire life. I literally wanted to pull my hair out by the roots just to give me something to do.
This "movie" is filled full of long slow shots of people doing mundane everyday things with little to no dialog to accompany it. If I wanted to watch wind blow through shrubbery for what seemed like ten minutes I'd step outside on a windy day. Seinfeld was known as the show about nothing but this movie could easily steal that phrase. It may have an overall point but how much torture do I have to sit through to get to it.
If you like watching grass grow you may like this "movie". Otherwise save the electricity and watch yourself in the mirror doing everyday things for two hours. You'll get the same result.
1 of 10 - It's up there with the Wicker Man remake as a movie that's just unacceptable.
