Truth be told, I know relatively little about Kurt Cobain -- I was just a few years too young and much too girly to have been caught up in the Nirvana frenzy of the '90s. So it was with a very open mind that I watched the recent documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck about the late Nirvana frontman.
As evidenced by all of the accolades in the trailer, this documentary is incredible. Filled with home videos of a young Kurt, home movies taken by Courtney Love while the two were newlyweds, and animated replications of entries from Kurt's diary -- this film shines an incredibly insightful light into this tragic star's life.
Regardless of what you may or may not know about Cobain or Nirvana (did you know Dave Grohl was their drummer? I had no clue, dude.) -- I highly recommend taking a few hours to sit down with this documentary. It is available for streaming on HBO GO.
