Watch: Kurt Cobain is Angst-Ridden in ‘Cobain: Montage of Heck’ Trailer

Watch: Kurt Cobain is Angst-Ridden in 'Cobain: Montage of Heck' Trailer

When Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994, it was the traumatic conclusion to his years of mental anguish.

Directed by Brett Morgen, the new documentary “Cobain: Montage of Heck” explores the troubled life of the Nirvana frontman. Much of the material in the film has rarely been seen, including never before seen footage of Kurt at home with Courtney and Frances, along with home videos of Kurt’s childhood and interviews with Kurt’s family members.

In this new trailer, we learn of Cobain’s troubled upbringing. “Cobain: Montage of Heck” appears very intimate, with footage from home videos and family members speaking candidly about Cobain’s angst-ridden life. The documentary also appears to use animation to reenact some portions of his life, which should be an interesting element, regardless of whether it blends well with the rest of the film.
“Cobain: Montage of Heck” opens in the theaters in the UK April 10, and it makes its U.S. premiere May 4 on HBO.
