Cobain: Montage of Heck gets a UK relase date

Friday, a day that coincided with what would have been Kurt Cobain’s 48th birthday, saw the release of the poster for the upcoming documentary about the singer’s life.
Cobain quadThere is also a 1-sheet, portrait, poster available.

The poster reminds me of his performance on MTV unplugged.  An amazing performance and an iconic set from that great series.

I have mentioned that we have been given the release date for the documentary as well.  That date is April 10, 2015.

From acclaimed director Brett Morgen, this first ever, fully authorised documentary feature blends Cobain’s personal archive of art, written word, music (both his most famous and some that’s never been heard), and never –before-seen home movies, with animation and revelatory interviews from his family and closest confidantes.

Following Kurt from his earliest years in Aberdeen, WA, through the height of his fame, it creates an intense and powerful cinematic insight into an artist who craved the spotlight even as he rejected the trappings of fame,

Those of Kurt’s generation will learn things about him they never knew. Those who’ve discovered the man and his music more recently will understand what makes Kurt the lasting icon that he is.

Just like the legendary frontman of Nirvana himself, COBAIN: Montage of Heck is authentic, visceral and unflinching. It will get into your head and stay there long after the end credits roll.
