really looking forward to this. should be powerful stuff.
This looks pretty awesome. Takes me right back to High School and College.
Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck (2015) - IMDb
Definitely gonna watch this. Some of the first music I listened to that was "mine" and not my sister's or my parents'.
Looking forward to it as well. I think I read the soundtrack is mostly (all?) previously unreleased stuff by Kurt so that should be cool as well.
Man back after his death I got way too deep in to all the Tom Grant conspiracies about Courtney Love and that other dude. Ah, to grow up. Looking forward to this also.
Bump since this was on tonight. Pretty damn impressive. Music and visuals worked so well.
Saw this yesterday. Thought it was awesome. Only thing I was disappointed in was that Dave Grohl didn't give an interview. Pretty much like doing a documentary on the Beatles without interviewing Paul McCartney. That, and Courtney Love's tits are gross.

Saw this last night and thought it was awesome. Brought me right back to my high school days. Kurt was more fucked up than I thought.
The only thing that bothered me abit was how they played to Courtney as the junkie with the heart of gold, and they really didn't delve into the Mom that much just made it look like it was all Kurt's fault.
Pretty sure the only way you can get any movie about Kurt anymore is if you play nice with Courtney .
I did have a laugh when she said that she never slept with anyone else, and in the same breath said she wasn't really into monogamy.
I thought the movie was very chaotic and disjointed, which probably was very fitting for the subject manner. It was less a documentary about Kurt and more a look into his mind, which from the art he left behind was an incredibly fucked up place.
I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, but only because I was aware of most of the backstory a more traditional documentary would have told.
I think in that Rolling Stones article previously mentioned Frances Bean said she wanted a documentary that helped her know who her dad was, and not just a documentary about his life that she'd already seen. Something along those lines. But I feel the same as etchazz, always knew he was fucked up but seeing some of those home videos was just crazy. Maybe I don't know enough junkies.
On the Dave Grohl stuff it has always seemed convenient how he doesn't weigh in on a lot of the Nirvana history and his time, etc... Loved him in the band, love(d) Foo Fighters, but he's always come off as a huge d-bag and seemed to spit on his time with Nirvana. I dunno, that's 100% a personal reaction and could be 100% wrong.
I think Dave Grohl is fucking rad. I don't think there's much d-bag about him. I mean, his speech at SXSW a couple years ago should get to any music fan.
Grohl is awesome, I dont think i've heard anything but positive stuff about the guy
Yeah, I don't think Grohl is a dick and I've always heard him speak positively about Cobain as well. Well...as positive as you can about the drug-addled leader of your band.
Fair enough, I'll reevaluate my position at a later date. No idea where my impression came from, just was one of those things so not like I had any real evidence.
In the Foo Fighters Back and Forth documentary he talks about Kurt and Nirvana a bit, specially since he almost saw Taylor Hawkins (foo drummer) go through a heroin overdose. Very interesting stuff.
Just go google Dave Grohl quotes if you have never seen them.

Yeah, very different, yet still very good. Grohl is awesome.
Pretty fascinating stuff.
Courtney Love's soul is dogshit.
I really liked this movie, particularly all of the remixes/covers of the Nirvana songs. Definitely takes me back to the 90s. It's pretty crazy that they were able to get all of those notebooks and home movies and shit too.
I'm surprised that Courtney let them shoot her lit like that. She is 50 but looked 70 in the movie.
Dave Grohl is pretty awesome and I would probably make out with him if I was drunk.
I like Nirvana songs and albums a lot, but I didn't slobber Cobain cock back in the 90s like many were doing. I was more of a Soundgarden/AIC kinda guy.
just watched this. had no idea Kurt Cobain was such a little pussy.
IMO, this whole thing was pretty bad. it would have been interesting to hear from Steve Albani and hear his thoughts on what Kurt was going through and the people surrounding him, or hear from Dave Grohl. instead we got to see Courtney Love spew bullshit for 2 hours.
I enjoyed the doc but after it was over it almost felt as if the entire production was Courtney Love apologists attempt. It was cool seeing my man Albani for 20 seconds.
All one needs to understand about Grohl and Courtney is to watch the Nirvana tribute during the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame show. The band chose 3 female singers to fill in Kurt's role and none of them were Courtney. (For the slow ones, the band did not need to choose women to sing. I took it as a direct dig at Cunty)
Also explains, regardless of what is being said, why present day Grohl wasnt involved.
The way I remember it is that even back in the day most normal people knew that AIC and Soundgarden were the more talented acts coming out of that whole scene. But Nirvana was simpler, a bit angrier, and what I believe to be the true reason they were commercially the bigger act: Kurt Cobain was much better looking than Cornell or Staley. Seriously, I remember the girls my age losing their minds over how dreamy Kurt was. And when he died? Holy fuck. The hysteria that came out of the female population was insane. I think guys liked Nirvana back then. I think girls straight up obsessed over, not the band, but Kurt himself. Who woulda guessed that a junkie messiah would be a sex symbol.
That being said, I think tthe movie did a good job at being about Kurt and gave us a bit of a window. I think most of us knew what his house and his life would look like, but it was still interesting to see it for real. I've always felt like I could sympathize with his desire to not be famous in the mainstream and I think that really showed in the movie. And the alternate recordings of some of the songs they played was cool as was the notebooks.
Tried to watch this last night. I made it as far as when they started to talk about the divorce and how much of a shitbag teen he was and no one wanted him. They started to make excuses for his mental state and what would follow. Boo fucking hoo. You were a punk and no one wanted to put up with your shit. Does this really get better, or is it another 1 hour of people making excuses?
Or I was hoping for more than just shitty parents talking about a shitty kid? Was there more to it than people who cared so little about him psychoanalyzing why he was fucked up? Do you keep a picture of Kurt taped to your dick and I offended you somehow?
I don't really care for Cobain that much, watched the documentary because I hadn't seen any others.
My point is, if something someone says in a documentary annoys you enough to turn it off... you probably had very little intent to watch it entirely through
an understated ensemble that puts the "b" in subtle
Kind of made him look like a little bitch of a kid. Cool dad, cool mom, got divorced, kid gets mad and draws a bunch of dinosaurs and shoots heroin. Same story as every kid from Seattle no big deal
Watched this last night. The childhood stuff was interesting in that it shows you where he came from, and shows he was fucked up, but the home videos were the parts that were the most interesting. Him with obvious needle marks in his arms. That was sad. Showing how high he was for the unplugged show, etc. It all painted a picture about untreated depression and drug abuse, either of which or both may have led to his suicide.
Yeah, Pearl Jam was definitely a bigger hit with chicks when I was in high school. That being said, Nirvana had its fair share of female fans.
Buzz Osborne (the Melvins) Talks the HBO Documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck | The Talkhouse Music
Buzz Osborne thinks most of the doc is BS.
InterdastingFirst off, people need to understand that 90% of Montage of Heck is bullshit. Total bullshit. That’s the one thing no one gets about Cobain — he was a master of jerking your chain.
For instance, I know the whole “I tried to fuck a fat retard” story is complete bullshit. Not even an inkling of truth. That’s too good a story to have gone this long without me hearing about it, especially if, as he suggests, the girl’s father freaked out about it at the high school.
You also have to remember that Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Sound Garden basically broke the shitty pop stranglehold on the music scene at that time. And as mentioned, Cobain was a great bullshitter and self promoter, plus they did not have the internal drama of Sound Garden nor the aversion to the establishment (i.e. Labels) that Pear Jam did. Mainly, people were just elated to listen to something other than fucking MC Hammer or C&C Music Factory type shit. It was sort of like when Disco died, but for the 90s.

If you were listening to pumps and a bump you were so out of style man.
Also your love of that music video might mean you are gay.
I didn't listen or like the song. I was just pointing out that you were wrong.
If you don't think that video is hilarious, you have no soul. He's practically knocking people out with his cock.

No regrets. I had a "that escalated quickly" jump right into Naughty by Nature and NWA.
Liked it. Reminded me, whatever happened to Spinal Tap? Those boys sure knew how to play at an 11!
Didn't everybody have a copied version of "As Nasty As They Wanna Be" by 2 Live Crew that they sneaked out to the car to listen to so their parents wouldn't find out that they had it?
