We haven’t seen it yet, but what we read and saw was talked about it, it must be the best video piece ever done about him as a father, an emotional person and creative mind, as well as a self-destructive devil and a junkie.
The director Brett Morgen received an unlimited excess to all the archives, personal things, voice and music recordings, family videos, Kurt’s paintings and writings, personal reflections about the world an him in it, for the first time…
Brett Morgan reveals how it was unexpected and unusual to find that one person which creates a visual and audio biography from the very beginning to the last day on earth: Kurt did just that.
The movie, “Montage of Heck” (named after one audio cassette tape found in his personal belongings) is narrated partly as an animation and partly covered with film material giving it a specific insight and look. If you find the chance to get the movie anywhere or to go to the cinema don’t miss it.
Watch the trailer here, and the whole audio recording of the Curt’s “Montage of Heck” tape after that in a Vimeo video by SpaceEcho:
