The trailer for Cobain: Montage of Heck has hit the web. It’s one of the most amazing trailers for a documentary I’ve seen in a very long time. So long, I can’t remember one that makes the film look soo good.
It’s got an interesting mix of styles. Animation, what looks like rotoscoping, the normal home video as well as talking head interviews with friends and family. Even so, it does make me want to go and see if, assuming it’s playing somewhere near where I am.
There are also some, in a way, silly little animations made from some of the doodles in his notebooks. Some did make me smile, in a strange sort of way.
As we’ve already had some images and a poster, I’ve decided to put some frames from the aminated sequences from the above trailer.
Hailed as one of the most innovative and intimate documentaries of all time experience Kurt Cobain like never before in the only ever fully authorised portrait of the famed music icon. Academy Award® nominated filmmaker Brett Morgen expertly blends Cobain’s personal archive of art, music, never seen before movies, animation and revelatory interviews from his family and closest friends.
Wildly creative and highly acclaimed, follow Kurt from his earliest years in this visceral and detailed cinematic insight of an artist at odds with his surroundings.
Fans and those of the Nirvana generation will learn things about Cobain they never knew while those who have recently discovered the man and his music will know what makes him the lasting icon that he still is today.
