The Razz: Movie Reviews: The dark side of rock and roll; LAST DAYS 12A.

ALTHOUGH inspired by the sad decline and suicide of Kurt Cobain, Last Days is not a Hollywood biopic.

It is very much an art movie that's experimental in style and more interested in mood rather than story.

Looking hauntingly like the Nirvana frontman, Michael Pitt mumbles and stumbles around a country house, alienated from the random visitors and freeloaders who knock on his front door.

As it emphasises the tedium of a drug-fuelledbreakdown, the film occasionally risks falling into its own boredom trap. Ultimately, though, it's a potent expression of the overwhelming loneliness that could drive a troubled soul to suicide
