Kurt Cobain Documentary Premieres on HBO

In this exclusive video, from KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK's, director Brett Morgen and Courtney Love answers the burning questions, including why Dave Grohl's not in the film and who exactly shot those intimate home movies.

Nirvana fans and film buffs alike can get the full Tribeca Film Festival experience within the comfort of their own homes as Brett Morgen's sad, moving, and marvelous biographical music documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is now available on HBO.

After the film, be sure to watch our in-depth Q&A about Cobain's life and legacy with Courtney Love and director Brett Morgen from the film's New York premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.


This documentary is a fascinating, unconventional, and altogether mesmerizing examination of the ’90s rock god who fronted the Seattle grunge-rock band Nirvana before committing suicide in April 1994. Given access to all of Cobain’s private files by the rocker’s widow, Courtney Love, and empowered by his now-22-year-old daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, Morgen started working on the film way back in 2007, and the eight-year project is unlike any other documentary screening at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, or any other film festival, for that matter. Montage of Heck pieces Cobain’s journal entries, audio recordings, performance footage, old on-camera interviews, and the Cobain family’s homemade Super 8 films all together with new interviews, including ones with Love and Cobain’s mother, sister, father, and stepmother.
