About the Film
Hailed as one of the most innovative and intimate documentaries of all time, experience Kurt Cobain like never before in the only ever fully authorized portrait of the famed music icon. Academy Award® nominated filmmaker Brett Morgen expertly blends Cobain's personal archive of art, music, never seen before movies, animation and revelatory interviews from his family and closest friends. Wildly creative and highly acclaimed, follow Kurt from his earliest years in this visceral and detailed cinematic insight of an artist at odds with his surroundings. Fans and those of the Nirvana generation will learn things about Cobain they never knew while those who have recently discovered the man and his music will know what makes him the lasting icon that he still is today.
An excellent documentary
Cobain is portrayed as an individual as opposed to the 90s icon which I respect this film so much for. I learned new things about the man as the film covered his life.
Expect Something Different
I for one think its a film fitting of its title. This is a collage made from Kurt's life rather than the standard rockumentary format, and for this it stands out on its own. The contributors are limited (Courtney, Krist, and Kurt's family), and for once its refreshing not to have Dave Grohl participate. The animations work very well in bringing Kurt's diaries to life. Despite reviews to the contrary, there's plenty of Nirvana footage to keep people happy. I have to agree with the criticism with the ending. It is too abrupt so that the film doesn't broach and dwell on the aftermath of Kurt's suicide, but if you can appreciate that the film is a celebration of a life, its not a minor quibble.
A pretty good watch, I really enjoyed the majority of the film. You do get to see a different side to Kurt - and Courtney's boobs are shown - a lot.
