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

Based on FACTS
10 June 2015 | by mimr-07495See all my reviews

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Someone has people deliberately sabotaging the rating of this film. If you take a look at the ratings scale, you will notice people voted primarily 1 or 10, not much in between, which indicates "tampering." Courtney Love has her attorneys sending "Cease & Desist" letters to theaters showing this film, which is based on FACTS. Tom Grant's audio recordings of his phone conversations with her, in addition to forensic science prove that Kurt Cobain could not have shot himself, which means he was murdered. Courtney had a motive for wanting Kurt dead. The #1 reason being that Kurt wanted a divorce & asked to have Courtney's name removed from his will. Four days after Kurt's body was found, Hole's ironically entitled album "Live Through This" was released (April 12,1994).

NOTE TO THEATERS: If Courtney Love hasn't sued Tom Grant in 21 years, what makes you think that she can sue you?? SHE CAN'T. It is a scare tactic! SHOW THE FILM, and let the public decide!!!

Here are some quotes from Courtney. She practically shoves it in our faces that she got away with murder. How's that for a spin?

"In rock stardom there's an absolute economic upside to self-destruction. What makes the most money for this business? Dead rock stars." Courtney Love (SPIN magazine, Oct. 2005)

"I married a guy, he killed himself, I inherited everything. That's the way it goes." Courtney Love (SPIN magazine. Feb. 2010)

I find it pathetic that people are down-rating this film before it's been released. I wonder who could possibly be behind this? Forensic science doesn't lie. If people would take the time to examine the evidence that is publicly available, such as the Seattle Police Department's reports on Kurt's death, they would see that it was not investigated at all. The first responding officers arrive at 8:56am on April 8, 1994. By 9:50am, less than an hour later, Kurt's death is officially ruled a suicide. How is this even possible? How could they determine the manner of death PRIOR to an autopsy and a toxicology report? Which leads to another problem. Courtney Love was personal friends with the medical examiner who performed Kurt's autopsy. This is a complete conflict of interest. Given the massive amount of heroin that Kurt Cobain was injected with, a triple lethal dose for the most severe addict, a 75X lethal dose for a non-addict, medical experts say that it would have been impossible for Kurt to shoot himself. He would've either been immediately incapacitated or dead. Yet, his shirt sleeves were rolled down & the caps had been placed back on the syringes. The shotgun had been loaded with 3 shells. Why? In case he missed? The expended shell casing was found on the opposite side of the ejection port, to Kurt's left. It should have landed to his right. No legible fingerprints were found on any of the items from the scene including the shotgun, expended shotgun shell casing, nor the two shotgun shells (live). I look forward to the world finally knowing the truth behind Kurt Cobain's death.

Review of "Soaked In Bleach" after viewing:

I've been waiting for over a year to see "Soaked In Bleach," and I can tell you right now, it was worth the torturous wait. It was way better than I actually expected. In fact, it was phenomenal. It was primarily documentary assisted by reenactments with actors, but even those were fantastic. The actual audio recordings that Tom Grant made were used in these scenes and were either dubbed over or blended with the actors' voices. Sarah Scott nailed Courtney Love. She was totally spot on. August Emerson, who played Dylan Carlson, Kurt Cobain's best friend was so good that I could not tell the difference between his voice & Dylan Carlson's. These reenactments were impeccable! But my biggest surprise was seeing certain experts that I had no idea would be in the film. I don't want to give anything away, but I have never been so impressed with a documentary / film in my life. It was absolutely spectacular, & Benjamin Statler obviously made sure that every detail, down to the lighting & the music went with the mood of what actually occurred to make this film as accurate and authentic as possible. I give it 20 stars out of 10!!

The investigation (since there was never one to begin with) into Kurt Cobain's death needs to be reopened immediately by an authority other than the Seattle Police Department. With Det. Mike Ciesynski still on their force, they are incapable of being unbiased & all remaining evidence should be immediately handed over to the FBI. PERIOD.
