Brett Morgen delivers a documentary that offers unique, artistically delivered insights into Cobain the person and to a lesser extent, Cobain the musician. Like many documentaries and biopics about troubled artists who seemed to loathe the fame their talent covets, one feels a sense of unease at watching intimate home videos of Cobain, his then wife Courtney Love and their young daughter. The use of animation, Cobain’s art and limited ‘talking heads’ make Montage of Heck enjoyable even for those not enamoured by Nirvana, Cobain and grunge.
Andrew has been a film lover all of his life. For a while now he's been talking about how great films are and usually that's been directly to his wife, Bernadette. Now with AB Film Review everyone else in the world can listen to what Andrew has to say to his wife. Bernadette grew up renting videos from a Plains Video. She mostly hired out Cry Baby and wore the tape thin learning the lines to the John Waters classic. After a series of arguments in the car ride home with her husband, Andrew, the two decided to record their arguments and launch them into the world for everyone to listen to.
