Last Days


Last_days_ver2 Gus Van Sant ("Elephant") continues to approach his signature lazy form of minimalist cinema that involves him leaving the camera running in front of long wobbly plot sequences that are meant to add up to a meaningful "meditation." "Last Days" contemplates the later life of Curt Cobain. Michael Pitt plays a bland version of the reclusive musician as he lounges around his spacious home working on developing musica ideas and getting stoned on booze and drugs. Boring, self-indulgent, and punctuated by still another of Van Sant's trademark homosexual kissing scenes, "Last Days" will make you wish this were Van Sant's last movie.

Rated R. 97 mins. (D-) (One Star)
