Plot Summary
In this film inspired by deceased Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain, brilliant-but-tortured musician Blake (Michael Pitt) becomes overwhelmed by the demands made on him by his fame and so retreats to a large mansion in the woods. Blake longs to be free of his friends' constant demands for money, their attempts to cash in on his success, and from the taxing expectations of the music business. As his depression worsens, Blake unwisely seeks an answer to his dilemma in solitude.

  • Van Sant, following "Gerry" and the superb "Elephant," is on the same elliptical quest. His journey is labored but undeniably hypnotic. show more

  • Mr. Van Sant and his star, Michael Pitt, together with the cinematographer Harris Savides, set out to do a somber, rigorously distanced study of a man drained of all resources, and slowly though inexorably approaching his end. That they have done exactly what they meant to do is notable. show more

  • While Last Days succeeds as a nature documentary, Van Sant fails to penetrate human nature. The result is a portrait without a face. show more
