Montage of Heck
For my generation one of the defining bands was Nirvana. A post indie punk band which became the most famous Grunge band in the world. This movie was the story of the lead singer Kurt Cobain and his rise from small town Aberdeen in the US to rock superstardom. He killed himself at 27 (as so many great musicians seem to do) with a shotgun to the head. How did he end up killing himself? Well this film explores the question using home movies, interviews with the band members and his wife Courtney Love. What emerges is the story of a sad, mentally ill teenager, who although wanting fame but had no way of dealing with it. Already dabbling in heroin, he descends into a destructive addiction which causes his paranoia to overwhelm him and eventually leads to suicide. A hard movie to watch but I guess it wasn’t an easy life to live either.
