    Has anyone seen this yet? It has leaked all over the internet and will debut on HBO May 4th.

    I just finished watching the two hour documentary, holy shit what a wild ride. It was like being on a bad acid trip at times but very well put together. Home video footage showed a disturbing place to raise a child, its a miracle Frances turned out as well as she has. It also includes some home recordings of Kurt, this Beatles cover was interesting to hear.




    The guy that put the documentary together had access to anything that was left behind and it looked like he used it all. Journal writings, paintings and drawings, audio clips had animated cartoons acting out the visuals. Definitely worth watching.

    zero. They cut her out early on when it became clear they couldn't be honest about their relationship if she had any control.

    She is interviewed but it doesnt seem like she had a lot to do with the final project, its just too well put together. I think Frances has a producer credit though.

    She gave the director keys to her storage and gave him permission to use any and all content

    I talked to a friend of mine yesterday who knows the director...said it was incredibly well done. Called it unvarnished truth about the guy, both his demons and moments of genius.

    Will watch it tonight.

    He definitely had some personal demons going all the way back to his childhood. Some of those drawings and short films he created were out there. It has kinda made me want to re evaluate his suicide. Courtney is a crazy bitch but Kurt was definitely out there too.

    I know everybody trashes Courtney, and she's obviously deeply troubled, but this is the woman Kurt chose to marry and have a child with. He obviously liked a lot about her drama. He wasn't some pushover victim.

    We saw it last night - phew, that was a rough one.

    I don't think I could have handled spending more than 3 minutes around Kurt and Courtney in the heroin days. I'll just keep the both of them on my iPhone - best for everyone.

    This is definitely a must-see. I've read a few books on him but this shed new light on a lot of things like his childhood and the Kurt/Courtney dynamic. And how great were those cartoons set to him narrating his diary? I'm a huge fan of music docs and will watch anything from Lemmy to Rush to Death (the black punk band from the 70's) to Quiet Riot and some of those were great but none come close to this.
    The 5GB download was a pain in the ass but it was definitely worth it.

    How crazy was it that he tried to kill himself on the train tracks and the train passed on the track beside him?

    I agree. I found a place I can stream it from and have since watched it three times already.

    We would pause on pages of his notebooks - that he had the Nevermind album cover sketched out and the Teen Spirit video imagined and inventoried before they were produced was fascinating to see.

    I will definitely watch this.
    My friend was roommates with Courtney in SF back in the 80s.
    He said she was a total lunatic - which says something, because he's pretty much
    looney also...
