Emerging Pictures is coordinating with Vimeo to release Soaked In Bleach, the long-awaited documentary by Benjamin Statler which uses documented facts to bring to the table the idea that Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain did not commit suicide and was in fact killed.
Broadwayworld.com paraphrased the movie well: “Soaked In Bleach reveals the events surrounding Cobain’s death as seen through the eyes of Tom Grant, the private investigator hired by Courtney Love in 1994 to track down her missing husband (Cobain) only days before his body was found at their Seattle home. Narrated by Grant (played by Lost’s Daniel Roebuck), the film develops as a narrative mystery with cinematic recreations, interviews with key experts and witnesses, and the examination of official artifacts from the 1994 case.”
The film comes closely trailing Brett Morgan’s film Montage of Heck, which takes a more emotional approach to showing the audience who Kurt Cobain was.
The release timing of Montage of Heck spurred suspicion, as the film had been in production for 7 years but suddenly set it’s release date a few months before Soaked in Bleach was looking to be released.
Soaked in Bleach will have a limited theatrical release in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Pittsburgh, to coincide with the North American release on Vimeo On Demand starting June 11, 2015.
