Soaked in Bleach: A Nirvana Fans Review

My Initial Reaction
I heard about this documentary by a Facebook friends personal review. Upon hearing of this, I immediately searched it out to watch it. I expected a documentary about the circumstances of Kurt Cobain's death, and I got that and so much more.
Most of the documentary is told in the words of Courtney Love's private investigator that she hired to find Cobain a day or two before his death. The investigator, Tom Grant, kept elaborate documentation of his meetings and interactions with Courtney and others he met on his hunt for Cobain - before, during, and following is apparent suicide.

What's So Great About It?
The best part of this documentary, in my opinion, is it's factual base. At many times you hear the actual recordings of Tom Grant and Courtney Love's conversations, but they are really well demonstrated by actors which I'm sure makes it easier to follow along and keep viewers engaged.
As I've said, it is based on Cobain's death, and that obviously puts a grim mood to the whole thing. It left me feeling pretty uneasy and eager for this case to be reopened.
- As I mentioned in my Montage of heck: a fans review
A documentary of Kurt Cobain could only ever leave me feeling a little bitter and a tad bit glum. For the main reason that it will never end the way I want it to.

I watched this documentary at least three times and talked about it rather constantly for 2 to 3 days. I undoubtedly believe there is a strong case against Courtney and the Seattle PD were to lazy to really care.
I've also determined that my 18 month old son should've been named Kurt Donald, and after seriously considering changing his name - I've decided what's done is done, and it's too late to go back now.
What Others Are Saying
This could probably be a topic of it's own, but after reading a lot of other opinions about this documentary it became really clear to me that I'm not alone and there are many others out there that think Courtney Love played a role in the death of her husband.
Over 20 years after Cobain's death, there is more evidence than ever that the Seattle PD cut corners and didn't properly investigate the death of Kurt Cobain.
Keep in mind, I'm only 24 years old. I signed a petition to reopen the case. Along with my name I left a comment.
"Being only 4 years old when this incident occurred, I think I am living proof that this will not be easily forgotten. "
