Which is the point."Uncut "In LAST DAYS, the writer-director Gus Van Sant draws us into the illusion that we're seeing the druggy, blithering, zoned-out final days of a rock star very much like -- no, exactly like -- Kurt Cobain."Entertainment Weekly "Pitt bears a spooky resemblance to Cobain and captures some of his intense originality in demeanor....[The film] has a hypnotic quality."USA Today Ranked #6 in Uncut's Best Films Of 2005 -- "A bleak but brilliant study of the isolating nature of fame."Uncut "[C]inematographer Harris Savides is behind the camera, finding beautiful still-life tableaux in Blake's crumbling mansion."Sight and Sound "Occasionally sublime in its vivid long-take hypnotics and sonic soundscapes."Premiere0.4308555

DEAD MAN was entirely improvised in real time..."Melody Maker (4/6/96, p.37) - "...Listening to it is an odd sensation.
