Last Days Preview
Day in Rock reports: We have a link to the preview trailer for Gus Van Sant's latest film, Last Days. Loosely based on the final days of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, LAST DAYS is filmmaker Gus Van Sant's meditation on the inner turmoil that engulfs a brilliant, but troubled, musician in the final hours of his life. Michael Pitt (THE DREAMERS) 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. 

The film opens on July 22. Click the full story link to watch the preview (in real media) - Click Here for the Full Story
