“Soaked in Bleach” New Film About Kurt Cobain?


What is the deal with “Soaked in Bleach” and the message of the film?

As I understand it, the film shows Kurt Cobain’s death as reported through the eyes of a private detective. Reportedly screenings of the controversial film are being cancelled because of a lawyer’s letters sent to the theater venues. The controversy simply makes people want to see the film more. And maybe that’s the point.

There are reviews of “Soaked in Bleach” online. Even The Hollywood Reporter reviewed the film. I imagine there are crime scene photos in this latest documentary film and many interviews.

If the approach of “Soaked in Bleach” shows that the case should be re-investigated, I doubt anyone will reopen the case. Kurt Cobain died in 1994. And there have been other documentaries such as Montage of Heck and Kurt Cobain: About a Son. No matter what has been said or reported and that includes a multitude of news stories, the case will not be reopened. Instead it will be left to Cobain’s fans to remember him and his talent in their own way and leave it at that.

At the end of the day, few documentaries have the power to stir how a police investigation labeled a case more than two decades ago. So, I have no idea why there are lawyers being hired to prevent people from seeing this latest take on the case.

Despite all of that, I’d still like to see this latest documentary for myself. Since people are being prevented from showing it in the movie theaters, I suppose I’ll have to wait for Netflix.

One thought on ““Soaked in Bleach” New Film About Kurt Cobain?

  1. It was Courtney love’s attorney who sent the threatening letters to the theaters. The reason why is simple. The documtary has numerous audio tapes of Courtney speaking to Tom (the PI she hired), as well as many other pieces of evidence/proof that she in fact played a huge role in kurts death. Therefor, she is threatening to sue the theaters for showing the film, instead of trying to sue Tom Grant because she is worried that the truth will finally be visible to the world. Little does she know, she’s making things worse for herself.
