Critic Reviews for Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck

All Critics (86) | Top Critics (23)

We see-almost from the inside-the evolution of Cobain's sensitive brilliance and the art and destruction that it fed.

Morgen and his editors have simply done a remarkable job -- also an artful one -- in piecing together this residuum.

On the subject of the life and death of Kurt Cobain there is still some work to be done, but Montage of Heck may be as close as we'll get to moving on.

January 3, 2016 | Full Review…

A masterful and often deeply moving portrait of a volatile American genius, a portrait that goes far beyond one man, one family and one rain-sodden small town.

January 3, 2016 | Full Review…

Cobain's life has been chronicled in scores of books and documentaries, but Montage of Heck feels fresh in the scope of material it includes, the way it's presented, and the things it emphasizes.

January 3, 2016 | Full Review…

Montage understands Cobain as an icon, but also as the mixed-up kid who got too famous too fast, and it seems content revealing, rather than reconciling, his contradictions.

Audience Reviews for Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck

I often treat it as a moment of embarrassment that Kurt Cobain remains such a symbol of my Generation. A brilliant musician and a terribly strange messed up human being. Despite its subject, the documentary is one of most well crafted that I have seen in ages.

A fascinating chronicle of a troubled music icon.

A comprehensive documentary that combines a great amount of video and audio footage with gorgeous animation and interviews to create a profoundly revealing character study, even if the final result feels a bit too long and some things are left hanging - like, where is Dave Grohl?
