A movie about the last days of Blake, which are similar to Cobain's last days, directed by Gus van Sant. It's pretty obvious who directed it because the style of the movie reminds to his previous movie "Elephant". The story isn't something extraordinary but that clearly wasn't the purpose of this movie. This movie tries to tell in the first place how lonely it is at the top. There isn't much dialog in the movie. It's more an effort in trying to understand Blake.
It isn't Van Sant's magnus opus, it won't become a timeless classic or an Oscar hit, but that doesn't bother. This movie is worth watching. I don't know you'll like it or not but i surely did.
