I bought this as a birthday present for a friend who has been a Nirvana fan since high school and has listened to all their music, seen all their videos, watched all the documentaries that have been made about Nirvana, Kurt, Kurt and Courtney, all the live performances. etc. This film is an unflinchingly honest presentation of Kurt's life, music, love, pain, and joy. It gave both my friend and me an eye-opening look into what made Kurt the person and genius of a musician that he was. The presentation of his private journal entries, drawings, and drafts of song lyrics display the raw emotion behind everything Kurt did, and bring much insight and understanding to his tragic end. It is dark and at times painfully sad, but there are also beautiful moments of joy--such as the old home movies of Kurt as a child, and the videos of him interacting with his own daughter. Montage of Heck may not be for everyone, some of it is graphic and could be disturbing or offensive to some, but it is a seemingly unfiltered look at what made Kurt Cobain who he was.

Absolute propaganda. This is Kurt Cobain through the filter of Courtney Love, which is NOT Kurt Cobain. Stay Away. Watch Soaked in Bleach if you want some truth. That said, France Bean deserves credit for her intentions here. She unfortunately has been brainwashed by Courtney's lies for years.

As a huge Kurt Cobain fan, I could not wait for this film to come out. Given the fact that Frances Bean was one of the executive producers and that it was authorized by both his band and family, I felt that it would be a true glimpse into this grunge icon. Boy was I wrong. I have been to Aberdeen, WA (just a few years ago in fact) and loved the vintage clips of Aberdeen and his childhood. I enjoyed the interviews with his family, for the most part. But the film attempts to carry on this suicide narrative and shove it in our faces a little too much, yes we know what the ruling on his death was, but we fans don't have to believe everything we are told. I would have liked to have heard from Dave Grohl and Frances as well. The feel seems rehearsed at times and it seems that certain speakers were coached on what to say by someone else. The film also shows way too much of his personal life and journals, which I do not feel that he would have approved of us fans seeing. There are far better films about Kurt and I think this was propaganda to make money for the estate. The animation was exceptional, but did not always help the viewer in any way. I did not like some of the filler visual clips that were included and I felt that they brought nothing to the film. Brett Morgen could have done a much better job.

Horrible documentary that exploits Kurt Cobain's personal journals. I'm a huge Nirvana/Kurt Cobain fan and I can say, Kurt Cobain would not want his personal journals to be exploited in a documentary nor home videos where he is high on heroin. Kurt Cobain loved playing music for his fans and was a very private person that didn't like his personal life displayed for everyone to see. I wish I would have never watched it. Soaked In Bleach is a five star documentary on him, even though it focuses on his death and Courtney Love having him murdered; it's still a positive movie about him & music.

Like the other reviewers I felt this film dwelled on negative and force feed slander with Miss Love holding the spoon. More money for her and how many times can she rape this man of his dignity? I am ashamed of their daughter who appantly has inherited her mothers sociopathic behaviour. Morgen is a sycophant for Love and opportunist to get money and make miss hole happy to fabricate Cobians lack of balls persona. What an abusive woman. His mother seems like a narcsstic know it all who does look like her daughter in law. Weird! Same clips of concert footage. Other stuff is voyeuristic for sadistic folk. Not me.
