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

I think that this is a very sad movie. It should have been called "Jerry Springer Casting Session with Two Scenes of Courtney Love." Like how bored was Nick Broomfield? I think that he is obsessed with Courtney because he was acting like a stalker and following her around. I wish she would have gotten ahold of him. He totally wussed out several times when he could have talked to her and maybe gotten a real answer for his banal and cliched crapumentary. Instead he just interviewed weirdo after weirdo. He has nothing better to do than trash Courtney Love and blame her for everything. I think it was very funny to watch all the overdramatic people he found for this movie. It was like "Waiting For Guffman Part 2" except "Kurt & Courney" was not intended to be funny and suprisingly no one in the movie worked at a Dairy Queen. He acts like he is horrified of Courtney and we should all be afraid fo her. I think the movie clearly showed that she just wants to put the past in the past and move on with her life without some idiots following her around picketing about her dead husband.
