Interesting, but as a Nirvana/Kurt fan since the eary 90s, nothing really new, except for the family footage (him as a baby and him interacting with baby Frances Bean). I was expecting more.

This is at its best when Morgen puts the viewer in Cobain's shoes. The second half of this documentary is excellent, there's very little handholding and I love how impressionistic/experimental it gets at points. It's so interesting to see the contrast between the biggest rockstar in the world who ju More
