‘Soaked In Bleach’ Among Most Popular Documentaries Released in 2015

Rolling Stone has released his best music documentary list for 2015, and they had to give a mention to Ben Statler’s ‘Soaked in Bleach’ when talking about Brett Morgen’s ‘Montage of Heck’. This is what they wrote:

‘Hell, there were two 2015 docs on Kurt Cobain alone — Brett Morgen’s Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, and Benjamin Statler’s Soaked in Bleach. The former, the first doc on Cobain to be made with the full cooperation of his family, utilizes home movies, personal journal entries and unreleased audio recordings to create an intimate portrait of the late Nirvana frontman. The latter uses the 1994 experiences of private detective Tom Grant — and some pretty dodgy dramatic re-enactments — to explore the question of whether or not Kurt actually killed himself, predictably drawing the wrath of Courtney Love, who does not come off particularly well in the doc.’

Rolling Stone has always sided with Morgen and licked Courtney Love’s boots, so of course they had no choice but diss ‘Soaked in Bleach’, which takes the opposite direction and meticulously demonstrates that Kurt Cobain’s death should seriously be re-examined by police and experts…. Dodgy? What part of those-recordings-are-Courtney-Love’s-real-voice Rolling Stone didn’t understand? Or chose to ignore rather, just like the opinions of all the experts who are re-affirming that the facts point to something else than a simple suicide. Didn’t Kanye West say ‘I hate facts cos they get in the way of my opinion’? This is exactly what’s happening here, let’s ignore the FACTS because we always have had this opinion that Cobain killed himself and we stand behind it… may be because we are in bed with Courtney.

Anyway, the biggest slap in the face of Rolling Stone is the picture above, ‘Soaked in Bleach’ is number 3 on IMDb list of the most popular documentaries in 2015… ‘Montage of Heck’ is only number 9. Statler’s movie was also on the banner of Netflix not a long time ago….

It speaks volume, people are really not buying all this media propaganda anymore and are interested by the truth. There is such a discrepancy between the official reviews and the independent ones, or the comments you can read on Facebook or Twitter, people are not fooled anymore! This is a movie which had an impact on people’s consciousness and may be it is the beginning of a new era.
