Last Days is filmmaker Gus Van Sant?s fictional meditation on the inner turmoil that engulfs a brilliant, but troubled musician in the final hours of his life. The story is inspired by the last days of Nirvana's lead singer Kurt Cobain. Michael Pitt (The Dreamers, Hedwig and the Angry Inch) stars as Blake, an introspective artist whose success has left him in a lonely place, where livelihoods rest on his shoulders and old friends regularly tap him for money and favors. Last Days follows Blake through a handful of hours he spends in and near his wooded home, a fugitive from his own life. Expanding on the elliptical style forged in his previous two films, Gerry and the Palme d?Or-winning Elephant, Van Sant layers images and sounds to articulate an emotional landscape, creating a dynamic work about a soul in transition.
