This ingeniously constructed documentary incorporates unseen journal entries, home-movie footage, private demos and childhood memorabilia to present a more intimate version of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain than has ever been seen. The result is a compelling portrait of a tortured man, containing exhilarating footage of the band’s explosive effect on the music scene, but also disturbing footage of his destructive behaviour, culminating in tragedy. Through the use of a variety of filmmaking mediums, the film takes in Cobain as precocious toddler; dealing with his parents' divorce; teen alienation; becoming a reluctant symbol of a generation; and loving father, sensitively capturing the torment that plagued him, but with a frankness which audiences should be prepared for.
