Watch the Disturbing Trailer for Kurt Cobain Documentary ‘Montage of Heck’

Kurt Cobain Montage of Heck

“Montage of Heck,” the authorized documentary of Kurt Cobain’s life, includes home movies and animated sequences.

The authorized documentary of the life of the late Kurt Cobain, frontman of grunge-rock titans Nirvana, will be getting a theatrical release prior to a run on HBO and eventual DVD release. The movie has screened at both the Sundance Film Festival and South By Southwest, and reviews find it hugely affecting—disturbing, heartbreaking, even ugly. “A junkie, a pain in the ass, an inveterate malcontent: This is the Cobain we see in [director Brett] Morgen’s documentary,” writes Tim Grierson at PasteMagazine.com. “Yet, by emphasizing the messy, ugly humanness of his subject, Morgen manages to make him heroic and tragic, too.”

Montage of Heck will begin hitting theaters abroad April 10, and will open in L.A., Seattle and NYC April 24. It comes to HBO May 4, and the planned DVD release happens in November. There’s also a companion book, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, available starting May 5.

The documentary’s title comes from a crazy-go-nuts mixtape Cobain made in the late ’80s—listen, if you dare (thanks kottke.org for the link):
