Next time you’re scouring Netflix for some top rated films to put in your queue, here’s one to avoid at all costs: Last Days – Gus Van Sant’s obtuse, meandering, painfully dull, hypothesized portrait of the final days of the late Kurt Cobain. Gee whiz, this movie is such a stunning piece of cinematic trash that to call it “The Worst Movie Ever in the Universe of All Time” is to perhaps pay it too high of a compliment.
Last Days is about as entertaining as peeling an apple and then watching it turn brown. I don’t think I would be spoiling it for anyone if I revealed a little bit of what happens in this movie: NOTHING. No one is denying that Kurt Cobain had a drug problem, but I seriously doubt he was the near-catatonic, incoherent zombie wastoid he is portrayed to be in this excruciatingly boring movie that no one should be forced to sit through even as punishment. If you’re looking to discover a really excellent Gus Van Sant-directed film, check out Drug Store Cowboy or To Die For and leave this piece of celluloid shit on the shelf.
