The movie's focus on the handling of the situation by the Police rather than the details that lead up to the death are what I consider its best parts. Conspiracy theories or not, the protocol in which the "crime" scene was handled and the events following thereafter were way out of line and that's what I really took away from Soaked in Bleach. What you feel about the people involved can be more of a personal thing; but the negligence of law enforcement in the movie is the real eye opener and what resonated with me to the end. I hope any potential watchers reading this review keep that in mind as you go through it.
So, let us say that even if KC offed himself, you can't deny that other women kill their husbands for the very same suspected motives. My point here is that it is a systemic social issue. Not just personal. Murdering people is profitable, especially if you can afford good lawyers. They could reopen the case and maybe find her guilty. But it won't address the root of the problem. Husbands will still get murdered for their wealth. Or social system overwhelmingly favors women. Watch The Red Pill.
Before renting this documentary, I firmly believed Kurt Kobain committed suicide. Now...I really don't know what to think. Was Kurt Kobain murdered? If he was murdered, who was responsible? We may never know, and the cops who "investigated" the case don't appear to care. I'm embarrassed by the practically non-existent investigation carried out by police officers in my state. I don't want to give too much away, but you know it's bad when the former police chief openly admits that his office failed to properly investigate what he now admits was, at best, a suspicious death.
The film presents a compelling case for reopening the investigation into Kobain's death. While it does occasionally delve into what might be deemed conspiracy theories about Courtney Love, it also puts forward some very practical questions concerning physical evidence, and puts to rest many of the myths surrounding Kurt Kobain's final months.
A worthwhile watch for any fan of Kobain or Nirvana.
