INSPIRED by the life and death of '90s icon and Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, this film explores the mind of a suicidal young rock star.

Michael Pitt is Blake, a heroin-taking musician whose success leads him to loneliness and despair. The film follows his last days as he becomes more and more isolated from the world around him.

You will either find this film slow and boring - it shows him cooking macaroni cheese in real time - or one of the most beautifully shot and life affirming films. 4/5
