The last thing I would like to do is put a lot of time into writing a review for this, um, product. However, I believe it to be my duty to warn any possible consumer of the grave boredom and then anger that will undoubtedly devour you once you feast your eyes on this, as I said before, um, product. Boredom, from it's lack of redeeming qualities and anger, from the money you will have wasted.

Low budget film eat your heart out, this DVD scrapes the bottom of the barrel. From the menu screen to the credits this DVD offers nothing to the general public. Based on the views of three virtually unknown "Friends" of Kurt Cobain, this "Tribute" carries on like a high school senior project, from one shaky camera interview to another. Not only do the "Friends" have virtually nothing to say, but they wax poetically about the "grunge movement" and Kurt Cobain in philosophical terms and rarely use examples to prove their points. Easily the most frustrating thing about these "Friends" is their lack of identification. Their names are never revealed, their importance is never explained and most importantly, their relevance is never understood.
Easily a tie for the second most annoying things in this "Tribute" are the occasionally appering marquee at the bottom of the screen, offering nothing but eye distracting mind dribble, and the horrific interviews of fans on the street, whose only possible function is to fill time.
In summary I would like to say that I feel dumber for having watched this, um, product and that I am currently in contact with a lawyer who is willing to sue the maker of this film for the portion of my life I lost watching it.

It was not a good start...the first words were that "this video contains no actual music by Nirvana". It turns out to be a bunch of lame interviews with people who apparently were worth interviewing to someone involved in the making of this disappointing piece...why don't they release "Live! Tonight! Sold Out!" on DVD??????? That's at least done by Kurt himself and has music/performances!

I'm the biggest Nirvana fan ever and this DVD is terrible. There is none of Nirvana's music,and the people being interviewed didn't even know Kurt Cobain. They're just Seattle junkies. Save your money.

Format: DVD
While being quite an interesting documentary to those that do now know the band very well, I found it being quite boring. The DVD consists of a number of interviews with some people that are in one way or the other related to the band, and little bits of footage. Some of the interviewed people were very annoying. One person overanalyzed the bands success way too much. The best bit of the DVD was the photographers stories, and his photography were quite good and interesting. While I have not seen any other videos or documentaries related to the Seattle music scene or Nirvana, I recommend you look elsewhere.

If it was possible, I wouldn't have given this film any stars. I bought this DVD and now I wish I hadn't. No actual Nirvana music, and only about 5 minutes of actual Nirvana footage. The interviews are of people who only live in Aberdeen. DO NOT BUY THIS DVD!!!!

Format: DVD
For as influential a band as Nirvana was, this film does not seem worthy of their greatness. Many major aspects of Nirvana are not covered, including Kurt's drug problems, the post-Nevermind relationship of the band, and his relationship with Courtney. Furthermore, the documentary contains no actual Nirvana songs. It insults Nirvana fans by having other groups performing their music during the film. If you are just learning about Nirvana, this is not an accurate depiction. Instead I would reccomend "Live, Tonight, Sold Out" which is not on DVD yet but seems to capture Kurt's vision. "Heavier than Heaven" by Charles Cross is also an excellent resource to really learn about the man behind the music. Overall this DVD is a brief glimpse of some random Nirvana facts that really big fans may find somewhat amusing. Other than that I can think of no appropriate audience for this terrible documentary.

this is an unnofficial documentary that has no live performances, and no interviews with anyone worth talking to. all they do is talk to people that LIVED IN THE SAME TOWN as him, and give little random facts about kurt cobain. for christ sake one of the people interiviewed comments on his music and says "smells like TEAM spirit", WHAT THE HELL?!?? this is the stupidest excuse for a biography i've ever seen.
DO NOT BUY THIS.
