Brett Morgen’s Cobain: The Montage of Heck was devastating. Gut-wrenching… The documentary’s strength lies in its unforgettable collage, of extant footage, and home movies (so touching) but also animation (Cobain’s journals coming to life in freaky little cartoons), and animated sequences showing Cobain recording himself in his home, or appearing on local radio stations, or the infamous raging telephone message he left to a journalist.

The film is every bit as accomplished as the early hype suggests, as Morgen cannily cuts between interviews with family members and close friends, animated reenactments (always a gamble, but the high-quality, near-rotoscoped look meshes well with the overall aesthetic), and most importantly, Cobain’s journals… It is a startlingly intimate look into a troubled man’s state of mind that never falls victim to sophistic psychoanalysis.

Home videos of Cobain and Love are as depressing as you’d expect, and while a producer credit for the couple’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain suggests a fond celebration of the film’s subject, he doesn’t emerge as a hugely compelling character. The argument for Cobain’s brilliance never quite convinces until towards the end, with his MTV Unplugged performance, in which a whole new compelling register to his talent emerges – too late for the film, and alas, for the singer himself.
