HBO’s highly anticipated documentary, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, debuted April 23 in numerous cities across North America and was met with critical acclaim.
The film chronicles the intimate life of the late guitarist and singer Kurt Cobain of the grunge rock band Nirvana, and was brought to life with the combined efforts of his daughter, executive producer Frances Bean Cobain and filmmaker Brett Morgan.
Montage of Heck features previously unreleased personal footage from the Cobain estate, offering an honest and raw look into the personal life of the troubled rock star. The documentary also includes interviews with his bandmate Krist Novoselic, Cobain’s mother and the infamous widow, Courtney Love Cobain.
