Grunge Icon Profiled in 'Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck' Doc UK Trailer
Following a premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, the documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is coming to HBO in May. But in the United Kingdom, the film is hitting theaters in April, and a trailer from across the pond has just arrived for the film profiling the iconic grunge musician who left us all too soon. Cobain's life is brought to life with never-before-heard music, home movies, animation and the musician's own art, combined with interviews with those closest to him. This was one of our favorite docs at Sundance as we called it "an impressive and enriching documentary," even for non-Nirvana fans. Watch!
Here's the UK trailer for Brett Morgen's Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, originally from Yahoo UK:
Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is written and directed by Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays in the Picture, Chicago 10). The documentary blends Cobain's personal archive of art, music, and never-before-seen home movies with animation and revelatory interviews with his family and closest confidants. Following Kurt from his earliest years in Aberdeen, Washington, through the height of his fame, a visceral and detailed cinematic insight of an artist at odds with his surroundings emerges. The film premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, hits UK theaters on April 10th, and airs only on HBO beginning on May 4th.

Never liked nirvana

Jeez, how could anyone (Ty below) not like Nirvana? I'm an old dude from the 60's and this group's first album with Teen Spirit, etc. was the real deal. Cobain was the real deal too. He was way too sensitive and tortured to handle this crazy world; especially the crazy world of the music industry and the business of it and then the idolization and expectations of crazy fans (fanatics!) He couldn't handle it and took a hike. It's everybody's choice...'to be or not to be' and all that. Wished he could have gotten clean and sober before he decided to move on, but it was his life and his trip and it happened the way it did. He ended the madness and suffering!

if you want to make "the definitive Kurt Cobain documentary," you don't do it with Courtney Love's approval. Plain and simple.

Why make a movie about a loser like him? I'm sure his kid is proud of daddy offing himself.
