Last Days (Gus Van Sant, 2005). Digital projection, 97 min.
In conjunction with Kurt, SAM Films will highlight a selection of documentaries and films that chronicle Kurt Cobainís career and the grunge phenomenon in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
Inspired by Kurt Cobainís life and death, and dedicated to him, Last Days is a fiction film about a rock star (a very Cobain-like Michael Pitt) in existential pain. Heís ready to end his life, but he canít stop creating music. Last Days is a subdued, minimalist film that challenges the viewerís narrative expectations.
