Description

    Kurt Cobain – lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter of Nirvana – remains an icon 20 years after his death.

    Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck invites you to experience Kurt’s life, art, and mind through his own unique lens, bringing you as close to the generation-defining icon as it’s possible to get. This first-ever fully authorized documentary feature blends Cobain’s personal archive of art, music (both his most famous and some that’s never been heard), written word, and never-before-seen home movies with animation and revelatory interviews from his family and closest confidantes. Following Kurt from his earliest years in Aberdeen, Wash., through the height of his fame, it creates an intense and powerful cinematic insight into an artist who craved the spotlight even as he rejected the trappings of fame. Those of Kurt’s generation will learn things about him they never knew. Those who’ve discovered the man and his music more recently will understand what makes Kurt the lasting icon that he is. Just like the legendary frontman of Nirvana himself, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is authentic, visceral, and unflinching. It will get into your head and stay there long after the end credits roll.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible & must see documentary This documentary about the life of Kurt Cobain reveals the depths of his talent but also his painful life story and battle with himself. Both a blessing and a curse it illustrates the path his genius takes him. Not just a celebration of his creations, but also a revelation of the truth about how and why the darker side eventually overshadowed everything else. It's very intense and the sense of sadness that laces everything doesn't ever really lift. However the production, from the use of original home movies, drawings and manuscripts to incredibly rendered animations, peppered with dialogue from Cobain's parents, Krist Novoselic & Courtney Love, is riveting. This is must see viewing for anybody interested not just in Kurt Cobain and Nirvana but anyone creative or who's life has been touched by a highly creative person. This movie illustrates how the wonder of true imagination is so often offset by the pain of terrible mental health. Can't live with it, can't live with out it.
