I love the subject matter and that it was him talking, but it would have been better to hear Nirvana playing and more images of him instead of random people.
I had trouble with the beginning as well and almost didn't watch it, but tried again on another day and was very glad I did. It's poetic, beautiful images, very touching at times, and it brought back so many memories
Cobain, an excellent subject matter. I just had a problem getting through how this film played out. Cobain speaking, sometimes in audible against a background of images which could not even be focused on. First 5 minutes my mind wandered. After the next 5 minutes I tuned out. I hoped it would have been better.
I liked how this was not centered around his death, but his living.
