Soaked in Bleach: A Nirvana Fans Review

Updated on December 15, 2015

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.

My opinion

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. "

      He is certainly a timeless influence Emi. And I just checked out that video. Nope, I don't think that is the one I have seen, but I will. I hope I remember over this holiday. My kids have two weeks out of school. I could catch it then. I can't wait! Thanks!

      I love this comment! Thank you so much for sharing your feelings!

      I, too, have always felt I relate a lot to Kurt in the same kind of way. I am only 24 so I believe his influence is timeless.

      If you haven't watched this documentary you really should check it out, and let me know what you think.

      Yes, yes, yes, Emi Sue. I believe also that Courtney had something to do with his death. I remember when this all happened and watching the newscast about it, the Entertainment Tonight footage where they caught Courtney and a friend walking trying to act all distraught, but that girl was loving the media attention you could tell. She just wasn't as torn up as a girl who was truly in love with a man should be.

      I just watched a documentary about Kurt not too long ago. I'm not sure if it is this one you mention or not. I haven't watched the footage you posted yet, I've only read your article, so I will go back and do that. But, I wanted to go ahead and comment that, I too, get your views on his death. It's always been a little too fishy for me.

      I'm fascinated with Kurt, and I think it's because I feel I relate to him in a misfit way. He could not get rid of the darkness plaguing him and I relate to that. If you read some of my poetry you will recognize that.

      Thanks for writing this. And again, you write very good. You are very talented. :)
