Last Days

 

USA 2005, 97 minutes
Dir. Gus Van Sant
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Independent, Pop/Rock

Topics: Experimental.

 

Aroview: A questionable meditation on a besieged, drug-addled rock-star, clearly modelled on Kurt Cobain, as he inhabits a remote, decaying mansion in the days before his ambiguous death.

Dir. Van Sant's vision is perhaps too 'eventless' (or just plain 'difficult') to propel this work to great popularity, but as phonecalls go unanswered and bandmates drop in, the anti-drama builds to a certain sense of existential confusion and dread. Adding a slightly queasy voyeuristic fascination with its young protagonist, and an oddly textured soundtrack, this will for most be taking a numbing lack of narrative too far.
