The movie trailer for Soaked in Bleach does not appear to have anything that other movies of the Kurt Cobain conspiricy theory genre have offered, but with out seeing the whole thing its hard to say.
It does look to have a higher production value than much older Kurt & Courtney movie.
SOAKED IN BLEACH reveals the events behind Kurt Cobain’s death as seen through the eyes of Tom Grant, the private investigator that was hired by Courtney Love in 1994 to track down her missing husband (Kurt Cobain) only days before his deceased body was found at their Seattle home. Cobain’s death was ruled a suicide by the police (a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound), but doubts have circulated for twenty years as to the legitimacy of this ruling, especially due to the work of Mr. Grant, a former L.A. County Sheriff’s detective, who did his own investigation and determined there was significant empirical and circumstantial evidence to conclude that foul play could very well have occurred. The film develops as a narrative mystery with cinematic re-creations, interviews with key experts and witnesses and the examination of official artifacts from the 1994 case.
Will this just be a cash in on the 20th Anniversary of Kurt Cobains death, or will this be a movie with some substance?
So with everyone getting in on the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobains death, it makes sense for a comic book to come out right?
I am not sure what Kurt Cobains opinion was on comic books, but I think he would have respected the art in most. As to how he would feel about being in a comic book.. I don’t think he would have been to thrilled..
Well you can pre order the 28 page full color “Tribute: Kurt Cobain” comic book from Comic Flea Market for just $3.99 USD.
I am not sure how this will go over with some of the legal teams that look after the estates and licences of the celebs pictured in this commercial, but after watching it.. Well its not worth the potential legal fights, cause its really a bad commercial..
