I have been aware of this movie for quite some time, and, at last, we have a trailer. ‘Soaked in Bleach’ explores Kurt Cobain’s last days and the possibility that he was murdered, or if you prefer conspiracy theories, as people like to call them! The movie is based on the investigation that private detective Tom Grant (played by Daniel Roebuck) has undertaken for 20 years now and it combines real footages with dramatic re-interpretations where Courtney Love is played by Sarah Scott and Kurt Cobain by Tyler Bryan.
I am very curious how different medias are going to receive this, so far Spin magazine writes ‘After that, it’s a parade of allegations, mainly accusing Love of having him killed so she could inherit his estate’ […] ‘The trailer doesn’t really offer any potential evidence that hasn’t been brought up in various books and documentaries, but timing the release of the preview to the 20th anniversary of Cobain’s death will surely get more people squawking.’ That’s because it is just a trailer obviously, wait until you see the movie! The article on Consequence of Sound isn’t better: ‘While it technically features some documentary footage, a good chunk of Soaked is pure speculation told via dramatic reenactments by hired actors’ […] ‘It may be slightly tempting to watch, but really it seems to be yet another piece of unnecessary — and frankly old, rehashed – chatter from the “conspiracy theories” camp.’
I watched the trailer, and honestly I will wait to see the movie to form an opinion but, and it is a big but, nobody can accuse Tom Grant of not being persistent in his quest for the truth,… and I like people who are trying to find the truth, as he says in this trailer. Plus, people who says he is cashing in on the case are really ignorant, I have even read he lost money in the process, plus a book and a movie in 20 years is not what I call cashing in, he is just exposing people to his findings.
This is amazing how current medias are reticent to even formulate some kind of doubt about the general opinion,… rehashed conspiracy theories? parade of allegations? What about Cyril Harrison Wecht who says at 1:39 that he ‘remains professionally disturbed by the way the Kurt Cobain’s case was mishandled’? This guy is a top forensic pathologist, ex-president of the American Academy of Forensic Science and the American College of Legal Medicine, and currently heads the board of trustees of the American Board of Legal Medicine!! No less! And what about Norm Stamper, former Chief of Seattle Police saying he would reopen the investigation? It is a mystery to me he didn’t do it when he was in function… but how can we still call it a conspiracy when officials like them agree on the fact that some questions need to be answered?
The police ruled the case in one day, wait 30 days to test the fingerprints on the gun, and there was this very suspicious page of writing found in Courtney Love’s possession, plus the divorce papers and so many other pieces of the puzzles that are going to be presented during the movie. I don’t understand why there aren’t more people totally outraged by the sloppy police work.
But I predict that the mainstream medias are gonna ignore it more or less, I predict a similar reaction from Rolling Stone or the LA Times, the same condescending tone, dismissing it like the product of insane allegations from crazy Tom. People are sheep it’s well known, they have a hard time to go against the grain, to ask the legitimate questions when it is so easy to go with the majority’s opinion. I am the opposite of this, and do you know what makes me suspicious at the top of everything? Tom Grant has run his Cobain Case website for years, openly accusing Courtney Love to be involved in her husband’s death and Courtney Love, the queen of the lawsuits, has never sued Grant. I can’t wait to see this movie.
