Smells Like Cine Spirit

Gus Van Sant's new film, Last Days, is a fictional recreation of the impending death of Kurt Cobain, shot in the director's now-mature semi-documentary style.

The trailer's up; Last Days opens May 16 in France, timed, presumably, with its debut at Cannes. Don't feel bad that France gets to see it long before the US, though. After all, Gerry didn't come out in France until after Elephant.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
