Last Days

You have to give director Gus Van Sant credit for moxy - it took guts to choose to premiere his film Last Days, a fictional take on the last days in the life of Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain, in Seattle, Cobain's home turf. During his pre-show intro, Van Sant told a little story about being asked on his way up to Seattle what he was going there for; when he said he was going to the North American debut of Last Days, his companion said, "Are you scared?"

"I wasn't then," Van Sant jokingly recalls, "but I am right now."
