Cobain's Last Days?

04.11.2005

You gotta hand it to indie director Gus Van Sant: at least he's never boring! The man behind such films as DRUGSTORE COWBOY, MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO, GOOD WILL HUNTING (don't ask) and the shot-for-shot remake of PSYCHO is back with yet another kooky project, this one about a Seattle-based band whose frontman decides to kill himself in his house one day. Said frontman looks exactly like Kurt Cobain of NIRVANA, dresses like him as well, but apparently the film is not about him, specifically.

Is this a joke or what?! C'maaaan! What's the deal here? The way I see it, you either go all the way and make a movie based on the man and his terrible demise or you make a movie that is in the same vein as his life, but you don't friggin' dress the guy the exact same way or make him look like him!! I'm confused. Maybe it's a legal matter, who knows. Whatever is the case, the film is called LAST DAYS and features actor Michael Pitt in the lead role (a character named Blake), as well as other artsy-fartsy folk like Asia Argento (playing a character named Asia, natch!), Harmony Korine (the writer of KIDS) and Lukas Haas (the Amish kid from WITNESS). As long as Courtney Love doesn't have an appearance in the film...I'm there!

To read the entire synopsis of this non-Nirvana based movie, click on any of the non-Kurt Cobain pictures below, and check out the rest of the grunge grub. The film might be released theatrically or on HBO, we're not sure yet.
