hmm i dunno how well ...By Jon#23 from HULL , 29 Aug 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]hmm i dunno how well this functions as a documentry, in terms of what you find out about the facts there is very little thats new. thanks to courtney no nirvana footage or music is allowed so the background music is formed instead by some of kurt's old mate's band. it's not particuarly great or inspiring to listen to and doesn't really relate to kurt or nirvana but still there was little alternative. Courtney's dad is shown on screen being decidedly critical about courtney without any mention of his treatment of her as a child and his role in her unsettled upbringing. The film in all just leaves you feeling empty and undecided without having really learnt anything from the 90 minute experience. The director acknowledges this but still, you watch documentries to learn.

Must watch for fansBy Melanie Bennet from Norwich, UK , 13 Jul 2006Whether or not you're a Hole or Nrivana fan, this is a must for everyone who was young in the grunge era. I was never a believer in the conspiracy theory but this film makes you wonder. definitly a must see

As good as it gets....By Clover (3 reviews) from London , 02 Jun 2006In life he became a legend.
In death he became an icon.
This is a compelling piece of filmmaking about the tragic relationship between Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love.
Nick broomfield takes the viewer on a journey through conspiracy, jealousy, envy and death.
The film pells away the layers of celebrity, fame and hype to get as close to the truth as possible.
very dissapointingBy a customer from macclesfield, england , 25 Jan 2006If your'e interested in this dvd and dont want to believe the terrible reviews, all i can say is believe them.
Their are a few minutes, total, of interview footage with Kurt at the beginning, and the most of the remaining film/documentary is a search
for who killed Kurt?
I say skip this one and watch the classic album-Nevermind dvd if you haven't already. Hope this helps.
Do. Not. Watch. This.By andylondon (63 reviews) from London , 03 Dec 2005This is really a film to be avoided. I'm not much of a fan of Nick Broomfield anyway but this documentary is just pointless.
Having heard the story of Kurt Cobain's rise and fall by his son, Brromfield heads out to see if there's any way he can cash in on it (or something). Along the way he finds a junky who claims to have been Kurt best friend (but never produces and proof of even having met him), Courtney Love's dad (who only really wants to promote the two books he's written about his estranged daughter), a guy who claims Courtney paid him to kill Kurt (who is not living much inside the real world even when he's not making these claims) and the guy who bought Kurt the shotgun he used to kill himself (who doesn't really have much to say).
At no point does Broomfield speak to anyone who has any real significance to the story. All he does is go out looking for a conspiracy and something sensatinal, what he finds is dubious testamony from people with their own agendas and little real knowledge on the subject (much like Broomfield himself).
If you are a fan of Kurt Cobain and Nirvana you will be doing yourself a great disservice by watching this.
