Film review: 'Soaked In Bleach'

Film review: ‘Soaked In Bleach’

Posted on 25 Aug 2015 at 10:13am

There’s been a lot of talk this year about Kurt Cobain.

Primarily because of the Montage Of Heck documentary, which examined his life in a detail of the kind that had never been seen before.

Much less publicised, but examining his death in just as much detail, is Soaked in Bleach, which in some respects could be viewed as an addendum far more important than just one more brick in the myth-building of the man, as the former no doubt is.

Or it could be viewed simply as the obsessions of a private investigator called Tom Grant (‘the name Kurt Cobain goes through my head at least 300 or 400 times a day’), who has nothing better to do other than imply that one of the world’s biggest rock stars didn’t commit suicide, was in fact murdered, and Courtney Love had something to do with it.
