The strength of Last Days is found in the nihilistic performance of Pitt.
June 10, 2018
A tremendously sad and unsettling film.

Van Sant brings a lyricism, a dreamy sensibility that infuses his detachment with sympathy. Last Days, which is informed by the suicide of Kurt Cobain, is a hauntingly beautiful tone poem.

Last Days is a strange creature: it's an extremely abbreviated biopic with zero details, a tribute to a man and his music without a trace of his songs, a tragedy without an arc, etc. It's also dynamite artistry.

Wandering in a narcoleptic stupor, Pitt's junkie rock star is as much lost soul as tortured genius, and Van Sant refrains from tacky pop theorising or tired rock-crit veneration.

The film will likely divide viewers, striking many as a self-indulgent wallow, others as a rewarding envelope-pusher. In fact, it combines elements of both.

Unpleasant but hypnotic lyrical meditation on death that was inspired by the suicide in 1994 of grunge rocker Kurt Cobain.

Don't send out the condolences just yet. The movie isn't about the director's death--if anything, it proves that Van Sant is very much alive.

Cinematographer Harris Savides manages to make these ... disintegrating environments and souls darkly beautiful. [But] Blake is a messiah ... dying for no one but himself.

Ne rinventant pas l'approche de sa srie, Gus Van Sant nous offre plutt avec Last Days une uvre qui effectue brillamment la synthse des deux opus prcdents.

One can find real beauty in Last Days ... but very little to enjoy.

For those open to the experience, it's a spellbinding, hypnotic masterpiece.
September 4, 2005
At the cinema it's an overextended and somewhat frustrating experience, but its real achievement is that it provokes thought in the hours and days following.
September 2, 2005
A beguiling work of some beauty, this is a further move into a world of hypnotic, observational cinema for Gus Van Sant.
August 30, 2005
A sad and lonely portrait about death, Gus Van Sant's Last Days is almost a voyeuristic experience
August 17, 2005
...like you're witnessing someone's final moments through the eyes of a waiting angel...
August 14, 2005
[A] meditative masterpiece. Now how you'll greet a film with no plot, depends upon your partiality toward experimental cinema and the self-indulgence of a heroin-addicted icon
August 12, 2005
Last Days will cast a poetic spell on some viewers, as it did this one, and will seem mind-sappingly boring to others.
