Look at the stats and you'll see that people are giving bad reviews 1 stars on this film 100 at a time. Sounds like an automated campaign to me. This started before the film was even released on 6/11. Courtney Love is also trying to intimidate cinemas from showing this film by having her attorneys send threatening letters. Most are ignoring her threats. There is so much information in this documentary you'll need to watch it more than once to catch it all. I've watched this film several times and I constantly pick up new info. Based on Tom Grant's actual recordings, case <more>
files, and observations during the days leading up to Cobain's death, this film takes painstaking steps to ensure accuracy. Thorough the use of actual recordings, you will hear Courtney Love explain how she easily lies to manipulate the press. Although she hires Tom on April 3rd Easter Sunday to try to find her missing husband, she conveniently leaves out critical information he was seen by their nanny at his own house on April 2nd . She has Grant search everywhere except their house until April 6th. Love is clearly obstructing the investigation, keeping Grant away from the house until she is ready for him to look there. Why? Includes police reports and interviews with expert forensic scientists and medical examiners across the country. The physical evidence suggests another person in the room as Cobain could not have pulled the trigger with the level of heroin in his system. The shotgun shell isn't where it should be. And, Love and Cobain were in the midst of a divorce. The film also includes comments from the former Seattle Chief of Police, Norm Stamper, who says, "If I were the Chief today, I would reopen this investigation." Watch this film and make your own decision. What really happened to Kurt Cobain in April, 1994?
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Someone has people deliberately sabotaging the rating of this film. If you take a look at the ratings scale, you will notice people voted primarily 1 or 10, not much in between, which indicates "tampering." Courtney Love has her attorneys sending "Cease & Desist" letters to theaters showing this film, which is based on FACTS. Tom Grant's audio recordings of his phone conversations with her, in addition to forensic science prove that Kurt Cobain could not have shot himself, which means he was murdered. Courtney had a motive for wanting Kurt dead. <more>
The #1 reason being that Kurt wanted a divorce & asked to have Courtney's name removed from his will. Four days after Kurt's body was found, Hole's ironically entitled album "Live Through This" was released April 12,1994 .NOTE TO THEATERS: If Courtney Love hasn't sued Tom Grant in 21 years, what makes you think that she can sue you?? SHE CAN'T. It is a scare tactic! SHOW THE FILM, and let the public decide!!!Here are some quotes from Courtney. She practically shoves it in our faces that she got away with murder. How's that for a spin?"In rock stardom there's an absolute economic upside to self-destruction. What makes the most money for this business? Dead rock stars." Courtney Love SPIN magazine, Oct. 2005 "I married a guy, he killed himself, I inherited everything. That's the way it goes." Courtney Love SPIN magazine. Feb. 2010 I find it pathetic that people are down-rating this film before it's been released. I wonder who could possibly be behind this? Forensic science doesn't lie. If people would take the time to examine the evidence that is publicly available, such as the Seattle Police Department's reports on Kurt's death, they would see that it was not investigated at all. The first responding officers arrive at 8:56am on April 8, 1994. By 9:50am, less than an hour later, Kurt's death is officially ruled a suicide. How is this even possible? How could they determine the manner of death PRIOR to an autopsy and a toxicology report? Which leads to another problem. Courtney Love was personal friends with the medical examiner who performed Kurt's autopsy. This is a complete conflict of interest. Given the massive amount of heroin that Kurt Cobain was injected with, a triple lethal dose for the most severe addict, a 75X lethal dose for a non-addict, medical experts say that it would have been impossible for Kurt to shoot himself. He would've either been immediately incapacitated or dead. Yet, his shirt sleeves were rolled down & the caps had been placed back on the syringes. The shotgun had been loaded with 3 shells. Why? In case he missed? The expended shell casing was found on the opposite side of the ejection port, to Kurt's left. It should have landed to his right. No legible fingerprints were found on any of the items from the scene including the shotgun, expended shotgun shell casing, nor the two shotgun shells live . I look forward to the world finally knowing the truth behind Kurt Cobain's death.Review of "Soaked In Bleach" after viewing:I've been waiting for over a year to see "Soaked In Bleach," and I can tell you right now, it was worth the torturous wait. It was way better than I actually expected. In fact, it was phenomenal. It was primarily documentary assisted by reenactments with actors, but even those were fantastic. The actual audio recordings that Tom Grant made were used in these scenes and were either dubbed over or blended with the actors' voices. Sarah Scott nailed Courtney Love. She was totally spot on. August Emerson, who played Dylan Carlson, Kurt Cobain's best friend was so good that I could not tell the difference between his voice & Dylan Carlson's. These reenactments were impeccable! But my biggest surprise was seeing certain experts that I had no idea would be in the film. I don't want to give anything away, but I have never been so impressed with a documentary / film in my life. It was absolutely spectacular, & Benjamin Statler obviously made sure that every detail, down to the lighting & the music went with the mood of what actually occurred to make this film as accurate and authentic as possible. I give it 20 stars out of 10!! The investigation since there was never one to begin with into Kurt Cobain's death needs to be reopened immediately by an authority other than the Seattle Police Department. With Det. Mike Ciesynski still on their force, they are incapable of being unbiased & all remaining evidence should be immediately handed over to the FBI. PERIOD.
Judging from the work Tom Grant has done, which will be showcased in this film, it deserves much acclaim. Courtney Love can buy as many 1 star reviews for this film as she wants there's companies that specialize is altering online "reputations" , just look at all the bogus hacking on YouTube, giving people tons of views their content never actually received. You can even pay for followers on Instagram. We live in a very fake time, so either way, this will bring hordes of movie goers and all people around the world to watch it. This is where Tom Grant and Kurt Cobain , wins, in <more>
my view. Nice try Courtney, the world is on Kurt's side this time.
As someone who has been following this case for only about a year, I've obviously had my doubts, but not after watching this movie. What you'll be presented with are actual audio recordings, re-enactments of some events as those were not video-recorded , interviews with forensic professionals pathologists, the former chief of the Seattle Police Department , etc. I learned things I didn't know that only further prove, to me, the truth, that Kurt did not choose nor want to end his life. The information was presented in both an easy to understand, as well as an interesting to <more>
watch, way. I would recommend this to ANYONE, no matter how you believe he died. You might be surprised with what you learned.I am very satisfied with this movie, I think it was excellent, well worth the wait, and the money I paid for it. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
Given the controversial nature of the subject I think the most important message I can convey about this film is that it is extremely well made.No matter what side of the fence one may find themselves on re: the 'conspiracy' theory I believe strongly that people will find this film to be compelling and very, very entertaining.It is absolutely worth watching and I recommend it highly.It's a real shame that the IMDb rating system seems to be very susceptible to vote rigging as this film deserves a much higher rating than what it is currently trending at: 3.7/10.It only takes a <more>
moment to recognize the intention of the over 2,000 'people' who have voted the film a 1 or 2 out of 10. It's intended to falsely degrade the film's worth in the hopes that people will not wish to watch it.Clearly these votes have be bought by one of the several IMDb 'vote buying' services online.This is a childish and unfair tactic that, frankly, makes me uncomfortable about the intent of the purchaser.However, it did compel me to write this review my first ever so perhaps the tactic might need a rethink?I voted 'Soaked in Bleach' a 8 out of 10 and I believe it is worth that, perhaps even more.I highly recommend that everybody even those with a passing interest in the subject matter should watch the film and decide for themselves what the film is worth.Personally, I think it easily qualifies as one of the 10 best documentaries I have ever seen.
A very important film...please do not be swayed by false negative ratings (by kentrosphone)
Cease and desist letters have been sent to theaters across America in attempt to prevent screenings of this film and it received thousands of negative ratings here on IMDb even before it was released! There's no blanket of ignorance thick enough to shield the world from the cold hard truth. WATCH this film, then decide for yourself whether you are going to be played a fool any longer, for those who have any interest whatsoever in the truth.This film is a visual representation of the FACTS surrounding Kurt Cobain's death, which were altogether ignored in a horribly mishandled <more>
investigation. The events presented in this film are brilliant reenactments based on the evidence collected by the Seattle PD and actual voice recordings collected by a private investigator who was hired by Courtney Love. It is a documentary film unlike most I've ever seen because it perfectly interlaces segments of reenactments with factual evidence and audio recordings, so you feel as though you were working the case along with the investigator.The information presented in this film provides COMPELLING justification to have the death of Kurt Cobain re-examined. A theme of suicide was sold to the media, the authorities and the public with desperate persistence long before Kurt's body was found. People tend to believe the first thing they hear, which is why it's taken 21 years to lift the veil. This is an important film, not made for profit or to capitalize on the tragic and untimely death of an icon, but rather as a visual companion to represent two decades' worth of diligence in the pursuit of the truth.
A Must See for Any Kurt Cobain or Nirvana fan. Makes you wonder. (by kurtmw-518-945633)
This is a very well put together film about the days before and after Kurt Cobain was found dead in 1994. Tom Grant sticks to the facts and only presents what he sees, what he recorded, and recounts the many red flags that came up during his investigation. Courtney Love was very misleading and the Seattle Police seemed to be very incompetent during the investigation. Tom did leave out some other issues that were brought up in other films and did so because he himself did not have those facts or evidence which to me shows the integrity of this man. There is another documentary where El Duce <more>
says he was offered $50,000 by Love to murder Kurt Cobain. He didn't do it but knew who did and he even passed two lie detector tests. Later he was mysteriously found dead on the rail road tracks. All of these items plus the "suicide note" which looks forged at the bottom plus the handwriting practice sheet found in Love's possessions are too much to ignore. Kurt may have had his issues with addiction but his close friends-at least the ones who weren't in on what Courtney was up to, say he was NOT suicidal and things were going a lot better for him. See for yourself and watch this movie. Even the former Seattle Police chief says they should re-open the investigation as do several other highly qualified detectives and experts. What was left out as well was how after Kurt's death Courtney just went out on tour, did tons of interviews promoting herself and the only time she appeared to grieve was during the memorial/"press conference" where she read part of the "suicide note" to Kurt's fans. It would be interesting to see what Krist and Dave as well as Francis Bean think if they were to watch this movie rather than just accept "Well, Kurt just had enough and blew his brain out". Whatever, never mind.
It's like watching a good mystery thriller, except it's a documentary based on evidence (by KineticSeoul)
Time change and this documentary gives a more in depth look into the Kurt Cobain death conspiracy. Especially with the added factors into the investigation in 2015. Which didn't apply when it came to the date of the investigation when Kurt Cobain died. This is a documentary but watching it felt like seeing some sort of well made mystery thriller. With detectives going on a investigation involving a conspiracy that revolves around a rock stars death. This movie would have been pretty good as a fictitious film, but the fact that it's involves a real out look and investigation really <more>
makes this documentary worth a watch. Although it gets redundant from time to time, it's a very interesting documentary. I was one of those people that was skeptical about Courtney murdering Kurt Cobain, but now I am actually convinced that there is a very high probability that she did it. Overall this is a documentary that just about anyone would find to be at least an interesting watch. Especially if you are a fan of Kurt Cobain and Nirvana. They did a really good job crafting all the evidence and materials for this documentary.8.5/10
