Since 1978, Anvil has become one of heavy metal's most influential yet commercially unsuccessful acts. In 2006, after a fledging European tour Anvil sets out to record their thirteenth album and continue to follow their dreams.

After rocker Kurt Cobain's death, ruled a suicide, a film crew arrives in Seattle to make a documentary. Director Nick Broomfield talks to lots of people: Cobain's aunt who provides home movies and recordings, the estranged father of Cobain's widow Courtney Love, an L.A. private investigator who worked for Love, a nanny for Kurt and Courtney's child, friends and lovers of both, and others. Although Love won't talk to him and his inquiries lose him financial backing, he comes to believe the coroner's verdict. Portraits emerge: a shy, slight Kurt, weary of touring, embarrassed by fame, hooked on heroin; an out-going Courtney, dramatic, controlling, moving from groupie to star. Written by
Kurt Cobain was the most influential rock star of the 1990s. Within the two years that Nirvana had reached it's peak fame, the youth trembled with a new wave of interest in life. A new rebellion. And a new source of income for future widow Courtney Love.
If you love Nirvana, and love Kurt more particularly, this film should be your first step in discovering what REALLY happened with Kurt Cobain's death. It was not a suicide, and evidence upon evidence will put silence to the cynics who simply want the past to stay in the past.
Courtney Love is NO innocent. I mean, I'm reviewing a film so I cannot reveal my true feelings about Courtney, but before watching this I had read articles upon articles on what Courtney did to Kurt during their years together and how INSANE she was when she dated Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan. Look, just watch this movie. The filmmaker has an honest interest on uncovering exactly what happened to Kurt Cobain.
It's hard to describe the spine tingling feelings this film causes.
Just WATCH it.
