SOAKED IN BLEACH (Documentary 2015 – Netflix  Streaming)

Just over 20 years after the event, this new documentary about the complications and mysteries that still shroud NIRVANA's songwriter/guitarist KURT COBAIN's alleged suicide offers up some compelling evidence to support that Cobain's death was actually a homicide.  Or, if not an out-and-out murder, there is certainly a strong argument for foul play and some very, very poor police work.

Focusing on new interviews with Tom Grant (a former police detective-turned-private investigator hired by Cobain's wife, Courtney Love), re-enactments are overlapped with actual phone recordings of Grant talking to Courtney Love, as well as others.  Grant quickly realized that Love did nothing but erupt with red flags every time she opened her mouth about her (at the time, presumably missing) husband Cobain.  I, myself, have never thought too highly of Courtney Love, and these original phone recordings only serve to show what a stoned boneheaded lunatic she is.  I wouldn't trust her as far as I could throw her.  She's so obviously a compulsive liar, it's almost a joke to even consider she's anything but guilty for many things if not everything.  Not to mention Cobain was in the beginning process of divorcing Love and having her taken out of his will, and if this all came to pass Courtney Love stood to receive only a very small settlement because of a pre-nuptial agreement.

What is most compelling –– and the facts that no one seems to dispute –– is that Cobain's autopsy toxicology report showed he had nearly three times the lethal amount of heroin in his system than even the hardest core junkie could endure.  That being said, and knowing that injecting even a regular dose of heroin will incapacitate a person almost immediately, it's not only amazing that Cobain could get all that heroin into his body without help, but also that he would never have been able to pick up a shotgun, aim it, and blow his own head off.  But that's still not all that just doesn't add up.

I highly recommend this doc to all fans of NIRVANA and Kurt Cobain.
