Storyline

Reveals the events behind Kurt Cobain's death as seen through the eyes of Tom Grant, the private investigator that was hired by Courtney Love in 1994 to track down her missing husband (Kurt Cobain) only days before his deceased body was found at their Seattle home. Cobain's death was ruled a suicide by the police (a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound), but doubts have circulated for twenty years as to the legitimacy of this ruling, especially due to the work of Mr. Grant, a former L.A. County Sheriff's detective, who did his own investigation and determined there was significant empirical and circumstantial evidence to conclude that foul play could very well have occurred. The film develops as a narrative mystery with cinematic re-creations, interviews with key experts and witnesses and the examination of official artifacts from the 1994 case. Written by Benjamin Statler

Finally! I have been waiting for a documentary like this for a long time.
9 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

From what I have seen so far, this documentary was made with a lot of blood, sweat and tears. I think that Benjamin Statler has done a wonderful job and should be commended for taking significant risk in investing his own time and money into something this controversial, and I hope that his work gets the recognition that it deserves come June 11th. I also hope that it will become to Australia very soon, but if not, I will find a way to give you my money. I recommend that people do not give this movie a one star because they don't want other people to see it; that is the most childish form of censorship. I think it is ridiculous that IMDb allows you to rate something that isn't released yet. Please give this movie a chance. Unlike Montage of Heck, Soaked In Bleach intends to present an accurate picture of Kurt's last months. Watch it, ask questions and verify the facts in this documentary. No one expects you to take this documentary at face value.
