As many of you know, I'm not a Nirvana fan, and never will be. I have gotten over the fact, that the music they made popular, in the early 90's, destroyed alot of great bands, from the 80's. Okay, maybe I still hold a little bit of grudge, but can you blame me? Seriously, when it comes to a documentary, it really doesn't depend on the genre for me. The latest to catch my eye, was one titled, Soaked in Bleach.
Soaked in Bleach is a documentary, about the mysteries, surrounding the grunge icon's death. I had seen other doc's on the topic, and was intrigued, so I thought, what the hell, how bad/good can it be. Well this thing was awesome, nothing bad about it. I'd seen other documentaries, on the subject, and thought that this was just one of those getting the Blueray treatment. Little did I know, that this thing was filled with all sorts of incriminating evidence, against Kurt Cobain's wife, Courtney Love.
The movie centers around a private detective (Tom Grant), whom was hired by Love, to try to track down Cobain, approx. 7 or so days, before his, alleged, suicide. The movie centers around re-enactments, as well as current interviews with the P.i., and others close to the Cobain's. This doc is so well done, and presents so much evidence, that the viewer start to wonder if Kurt's death was a suicide or really a murder, in disguise. It will defintiely leave you scratching your head a bit. This one was intriguing from beginning to end. You must watch this movie.
Bottom Line: Nirvana fan or not, this is an excellent documentary, which will leave you thinking until the end. It is a real life who done it. You'll be especially intrigued, when you hear the live tapes, that Tom recorded with Courtney, it'll blow your mind.
-Ragman is thinking Courtney is not a fan of this doc. Also he was pissed, that The Mentor's were not featured in this one, as they were, in the last one he viewed on the subject.
