For me the music lives on. It was played today on the radio as I drove coach. I turned it up. I appreciate this set of interviews immensely and I enjoyed the film. I can see why he could get dark about life as he experienced life from his point of view, but I think he also enjoyed some great times and was a true artist from the heart, whom was loved by millions, even if he didn't want to like being so liked. He was a very fortunate man to have been able to share so much and make such a statement, few have had that luxury and lived to tell about it. He is still telling us about it. Thank You.
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.
