No new information, no great revelations. Overhyped as the definitive documentary about Kurt Cobain, it's actually far too personal and fragmentary to add up to anything like a complete account of Cobain's life or his music. The earlier part is a weird but affecting diary but then when the band starts to take off it seems to abruptly switch into more of a concert film. The pacing is off as well; the story of Cobain's later life, his last few months, feels truncated..

Very personal. Visualizing the audio recordings by the man himself with animation works, and the use of Nirvana melodies on the score was really great. A must for fans, obviously.

Obviously the irritating editing is supposed to imitate Kurt's childhood ADD, to me it's off-putting and distracting. Nice idea but too unfocused and on top of that it's far far too long

Respectful, artistic documentary offering an especially good look at Cobain's childhood and youth, in a "Tarnation"-like montage including his notes and drawings and home recordings intercut with interview bits and studio-produced animations. Being "authorized" means it handles Courtney with kid gloves and stops short of Kurt's suicide, which is a weakness, but a greater shame is that it has nothing about Kurt's compositions and why they were special. Sadly, most rockumentaries don't have that.

Wrong information at times or not, this should be the archetype in how to make a documentary engaging. It's perfect.
