‘Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck': A clearer take on whatever, nevermind
May 3, 2015 7:00 AM - While the rest of us get older, Kurt Cobain is forever 27. Biographers and filmmakers have gone over it and over it with varying results, but Brett Morgen's rich and achingly artful documentary, "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck" (premiering Monday on HBO), puts an end to those questions. Not by definitively answering them, but by redirecting the focus on how Nirvana's tragic frontman came into this world, how he was artistically and emotionally wired and what kind of person he was before and after success. From this comes the only real answer: He needed help and he didn't get it.
