Rating: 4.3/10 (504 voted)

Critic's Score: /100

Director: Benjamin Statler

Stars: Kurt Cobain, Sarah Scott, Daniel Roebuck

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.

Rating: 10/10

Funny some people are writing bad reviews on a film not yet released. I'm waiting patiently but I know this film is incredible.

Based on Tom Grant's actual recordings, case files, and observations during the days leading up to Cobain's death, this film takes painstaking steps to ensure accuracy. Includes police reports and interviews with expert forensic scientists and medical examiners across the country. Also includes comments from the former Seattle Chief of Police, Norm Stamper.

I'll update my review on June 11th, the official release date, and after I've watched it.
