This immersive documentary about the tragic Nirvana frontman – the only one made with the cooperation of his family (including his widow Courtney Love) – Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is a no-holds-barred look at Cobain’s life and work, and has received rave reviews from critics. Director Brett Morgen includes interviews with Love, Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic and Cobain’s parents and sister alongside performance footage, unheard songs, exceprts from home movies, recordings, artwork, photography, journals and demos; creating a holistic and absorbing picture of the troubled, magnetic Cobain that’s at once broad and compellingly intimate, and a fitting legacy to musical career.
“An eight-years-in-the-making collective labour of love that offers a private peek into the artist’s mind, from the first creative stirrings to the spiral downward” David Fear, Rolling Stone
