"Soaked In Bleach" is in many ways the movie version of the exceedingly well-documented Max Wallace and Ian Halperin book "Love & Death," which is highly recommended. Stay away from "Heavier Than Heaven" by Charles Cross. Or read it with the full knowledge that it is Courtney Love's version of how she would like the story told.
Five out of five stars. If you care about what really happened to Kurt Cobain, Soaked in Bleach is a must. Kurt doesn't deserve to go down in history as a suicide. He was not remotely suicidal.
Seattle Police Department, please reopen this case and fully examine it!
If you love conspiracy documentaries that don't include all the facts so a story can be framed in a specific way, this is the documentary for you.
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.
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.

My opinion is that Kurt, from the age of nine, never recovered from his parents' divorce and the fact that no-one wanted him. Christ almighty, as a child, his family fed Kurt Ritalin for his supposed "hyperactivity". Kurt was a gifted, highly sensitive and highly creative individual. Kurt was a genius, an original thinker, and seriously misunderstood; he felt betrayed, isolated and he never felt good enough, no matter how successful he was. Kurt was self-destructive - a certain music critic once said something about Kurt being the only one who'd throw himself from the stage into the audience without judging the situation carefully.
Kurt was no poseur - he was the real deal - but he was given to impulsive behaviour, and this and his troubled youth, his heroin addiction and his previous suicide attempts convince this viewer that Kurt Cobain committed suicide that night in Seattle. Long before Kurt "hit the big time" one of his friends said to him: "I wonder what we'll be like when we are thirty?" The teenage Kurt responded: "I'll never be thirty, you know what life is like after thirty." Kurt was true to his word: "Found my nest of salt, everything's my fault... I'll take all the blame, Aqua seafoam shame. I'm married... I'm buried... yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah." There you have it from the great man himself... nihilism writ-large.
