Burned-out rock musician Blake (Michael Pitt) turns to drugs as a means of escape from the pressures of success and celebrity. Surrounded by hangers-on who take advantage of his wealth, an increasingly isolated Blake descends into a narcotic stupor. Inspired in part by the life and death of Kurt Cobain, Gus Van Sant's meditative drama also stars Lukas Haas, Asia Argento, and Ricky Jay. 97 min.
