This film is based on the FACTS surrounding the death of Kurt Cobain. I became extremely curious about his death after the Seattle Police Department began releasing photos of the crime scene on the 20 year anniversary of Cobain's death. I must say, once they published the derogatory wedding vow note, that had never been seen by the public before, I had to know WHY so many people believed that Kurt Cobain was murdered. Soaked In Bleach takes you through the events as they unfolded in the days leading up to the discovery of Kurt Cobain's body in the greenhouse above the garage of Kurt & Courtney's Lake Washington home.
This film is primarily documentary, with reenactments of key events. Director Benjamin Statler used the audio recordings of conversations between Tom Grant & Courtney Love, as well as conversations that Tom had recorded between himself & Kurt & Courtney's attorney Rosemary Carroll, and he perfectly dubbed the voices of Tom Grant, Courtney Love & Dylan Carlson over the actors' for a good portion of the reenactments, which were jaw dropping.
The documentary portion of the film contains interviews with those who knew Kurt prior to fame, as well as the testimony of several medical experts, a document examiner, and a homicide detective. There is a substantial amount of evidence to prove that Kurt Cobain was murdered, the most irrefutable being the fact that he had been injected with a 3X lethal dose of heroin (for the most severe addict), which would be a 75X lethal dose for a non-addict. Diazepam was also found in Kurt's system. Medical experts agree that it would have been impossible for Kurt Cobain to have shot himself because he would have been immediately incapacitated or dead. Yet his death was ruled a suicide in 54 minutes (according to the SPD reports, which are available online). There is absolutely no way that a cause of death can be determined without an autopsy & a toxicology report, but nonetheless, it was still labeled an open & shut case of suicide. Kurt Cobain's death investigation needs to be reopened by an authority, completely independent of the Seattle Police Department!
This documentary is not just Mr. Grant discussing his opinion of what may have happened to Kurt. You will hear recorded conversations with Courtney Love, Rosemary Carroll (family friend & attorney for the Cobain's), and others close to the family that contradict what has been said to have taken place in the week leading up to Kurt's body being found. Mr. Grant does not claim to have the all of the answers to what happened, he simply would like to see this case reopened and examined thoroughly by unbiased eyes, as well as have the autopsy report be made public. There are too many missing pieces in this puzzle. This case will never have closure until the people that have those missing pieces, or information that could lead to them, come forward. If they aren't willing to do so, then one can only assume that they have something to hide.
Suicide or Murder? Without analyzing ALL of the evidence, no one can say for sure either way. It's past time for this case to be properly closed and for Kurt Cobain to finally be put peacefully to rest.
