Kanopy, a streaming video database of the Rohrbach Library, offers a slew of films, such as “Soaked in Bleach” to students.
“Soaked in Bleach” is a documentary that provides a new perspective on the death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain through Tom Grant, a private investigator (and former detective) who was hired by Cobain’s wife, Courtney Love, days before Cobain’s death.
During his investigation, Grant’s experience with Love and his analysis of evidence led him to conclude that a substantial amount of empirical and circumstantial evidence suggested that Cobain’s death was not a suicide, as ruled by police, but instead involved foul play.
Featuring interviews with key witnesses and experts, “Soaked in Bleach” is worth watching. As well, the documentary includes cinematic re-creations, developing the film into what Kanopy calls a, “narrative mystery.”
