A Kurt Cobain Documentary Produced By His Daughter Is Coming To HBO

Once HBO is finished tearing down L. Ron Hubbard, they’re moving onto glorifying an equally influential cult icon: Kurt Cobain. The Nirvana singer will be immortalized in a “long-gestating documentary” from director Brett Morgen and producer Frances Bean, his daughter. It will be called Montage of Heck, named after Kurt’s bizarre mixtape, and will debut on HBO next year.

It is the first documentary to be made with the cooperation of Cobain’s family and will include never-before-seen home movies, recordings, artwork and photography, plus material from his personal archives, family archives and songbooks. The film features dozens of Nirvana songs and performances as well as previously unheard Cobain originals.Cobain committed suicide 20 years ago at the age of 27. (Via)

HBO’s next documentary should be about what the hell Gus Van Sant was thinking when he was making Last Days starring Michael Pitt as Kurt, er, “Blake.” That could be a 17-part, 27-hour, Ken Burns-style investigation, and I’d watch every second of it.
