33. Last Days

In Arthouse on July 29, 2011 at 8:39 AM

Dir. Gus van Sant

A Seattle-set rock & roll drama about a musician whose life and career is reminiscent of Kurt Cobain’s.

MY TAKE

Michael Pitt hides behind his hair more than he disappears into his performance, but it’s amplified by the detached filmmaking style. The form, however, matches the substance of the film and I was moderately fascinated  as the rocker retreats from humanity right to his inevitable end.
