June 24, 2005
The problem with Last Days is that Van Sant's primary mode of saying something is saying nothing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
July 21, 2005
Van Sant's drama "inspired by" the last days of Kurt Cobain is an improvised, indulgent failure with none of the energy of the life -- and death -- it parrots.

May 13, 2005
Skips over such cinematic non-essentials as character, motivation, backstory and narrative.
July 25, 2005
The problem is the first twenty-seven years of this character's life are probably a lot more interesting than the last three days.
August 11, 2005
Last Days has the blank, discombobulated feeling you get when you wake up in a hotel room and your brain hasn't kicked in and you're not sure where you are.

...less art than a joyless exercise in poorly conceived perversity.

If there's a real person in all this, he is lost in your stubbornly experimental filmmaking technique. Experiments are only interesting when they work, you know.

August 12, 2005
Van Sant has lost all touch with his audience in Last Days... It's an experiment and the result is utter nothingness.

July 21, 2005
The ferociously tedious and ostentatious Last Days is an insult to the sad life of a rock legend.

April 15, 2009
Boring, self-indulgent and punctuated by Van Sant's trademark homosexual kissing scene, "Last Days" will make you wish that this were Van Sant's last movie.
Full Review | Original Score: D-
August 13, 2005
A film about a junkie rock musician, played by Michael Pitt at his most narcissistic, doing nothing in particular for the better part of 97 minutes isn't my idea of either a good time or a serious endeavor.

April 29, 2009
Yet another mass produced offering in to the thought process of deifying someone so asinine and melodramatic as Kurt Cobain...
July 12, 2005
Despite the beautiful photography and good-looking actors and naturalistic locations, it strikes me as bogus.
Full Review | Original Score: C
July 21, 2005
Van Sant tries too hard to make some meaning out of Kurt Cobain's hazy and crazy last days.

After an hour and a half of this, you may feel as if you're on drugs yourself. Or wish you were.

Sorely lacks the angry energy and wit Cobain brought to his work.

July 22, 2005
Seamlessly and rather cleverly, without telling anybody, Gus Van Sant has transitioned out of important filmmaking and has taken up a new career in torture.

If you're going to make a movie about Kurt Cobain, you might as well make a movie about Kurt Cobain.

It's all terribly self-conscious and desperately arty and fairly bad.
