As many of the reviews here have stated, not a great deal happens in 'Last Days'. For fans of fast paced, action-led movies, you'd have more excitment in a coma, and if you're hoping for a big climactic ending involving a shotgun and Courtney Love, you'll also be disapointed. Whilst much has been made of the similarities between the movie's protaganist and the great Nirvana frontman, and they are many, the viewer should think of Cobain as being the inspiration behind the camera, not represented in front of it.

Many of the reviewers who awarded 'Last Days' with just a single star said that they spent the entire movie waiting for something to happen - I wonder, during this moment of anticipation did they once look up at the screen and notice the wonderful protrait of a man's isolation taking place infront of them? Whilst the Hollywood blockbusters we all enjoy munching our popcorn to are likened to rollercoasters, 'Last Days' is more like a gentle stroll by the canal. It's a slow burner, sensitively played and wonderfully shot. The overall tone of the film is melancholic to say the least however some of Blake's more surreal behaviour (two words: rifle and dress) punctuates the film with moments of stark comedy.

Perhaps this film isn't for everybody and I respect all the other reviews that have been posted, but please don't be put off by them. I'm not going to proclaim it a masterpiece like many of the critics (what consititutes a masterpiece anyway?) but I do think it's a wonderful film that deserves to be given a chance. 'Last Days' is a movie to loose youself in, to be hypnotised by; like drowning in a sea of tranquility (but drowning in a good way, obviously). And to all those people who spent the entire movie 'waiting' - the world won't stand still for you, wait too long for something to happen and life will pass you by. Enjoy the moment.

What I liked about this film was that it's a brilliant representation of what it's like to feel really depressed. The long, dragging of the days. The grinding boredom. The sense of nothing happening. The emptiness. People coming and going. When they speak they seem muffled and distant. It's pointless and it goes nowhere. It's boring and it just goes on and on and on. It's painful and by the end you just want it to be over. That's how long term depression feels. That's the point.

I'm sorry to write such a negative review - normally I wouldn't bother but I disliked this film so much that I don't want others to suffer the same fate. Like chameleon244 I can't understand why anyone would like this film but looking at the other reviews I guess some people do. So feel free to ignore this review - it's only my personal taste after all - but don't say you haven't been warned!
I guess the nicest thing I can say about Last Days is that it has atmosphere. Bags of melancholy, paint-peeling, slow-moving atmosphere. Oh, and Michal Pitt looks a bit like Kurt Cobain. Unfortunately for me this didn't make up for the complete lack of plot, dialogue or character development. I'm afraid I found it terribly, terribly dull. And oh, so slo-o-o-o-o-w. Viewers will gain absolutely no insight into Kurt Cobain's last days other than that he was in a bit of a mess.
I will cheerfully admit that I could have missed the point and this kind of film is simply not to my taste. However, the bottom line is that if someone held a gun to my head and tried to make me watch this again I would take the bullet (which is what I wanted to do pretty much throughout watching it anyway).
At least I will now have no hesitation when someone asks me to name my worst film of all time.

I was put off watching this film for a very long time due to comments like 'nothing happens', 'pointless movie', 'arty rubbish' etc but as the years passed (and the price of the DVD dropped) i gave in a bought it and can say that it now has a proud place in my DVD collection.

First off with regards to pace this film is in no hurry to get anywhere fast!!! I can imagine alot of people falling asleep while watching this. However, it is superbly directed and very well acted by all. The photography is great and really conveys a sense of isolation.

Without giving too much away it tells the story of a rock star who seems to have very little to do all day and therefore feels rather isolated and alone. This is where some viewer comments like 'nothing happens' seem rather silly as I believe it is the point the movie is trying to make and its affect on Blake (played brilliantly by Michael Pitt).

If you decide to watch this my advice would be to relax, allow the film to move at its own pace (no cheating by fast forwarding) and allow yourself to connect with the character of the film who inspired my sympathy throughout. Hope you enjoy.

Excrutiatingly slow and very, very dull - I LOVE it.
Pitt is perfect, the pace of the film is perfect, sparse, sensitive film-making - and it's not supposed to be an action movie (is it?)
The feel is above all else TIRED. And I think that's the point, the winding down of something that was once dynamic, all energy drained.
It's not going to end happily.

Do not bother with this film unless you are a masochist. I went to see it in the cinema and nobody who I went with enjoyed it in the slightest.
I am not against slow moving films at all, in fact a lot of my favourite films move very very slowly, but I do at least like films where things happen. This film just involves a man who looks a bit like Kurt Cobain wandering around a house mumbling. Then wandering around a forest mumbling. Then mumbling to some people. Very very dull and repetitive.
There is hardly any characterisation, nothing throughout the whole film is explained at all, which is fine sometimes, but did not work at all in this. There are scenes which are repeated sometimes, the second being longer, showing more of what actually happens. However, this just makes already dull scenes even duller, and doesn't add anything to the film at all.
I did find the film interesting for about the first 15 minutes, but that's only because I assumed that something interesting would actually happen at some point. For the rest of the time I was itching to leave, but decided to stick it out just in case it got better. This was a mistake.
Normally when I dislike films I can at least understand why other people would like them, but I could not see any reason why anybody would like this.
Avoid this film at all costs.
