I was so excited about the movie. Especially this screening, given that Brett Morgan was going to be there. It seems that Brett was asked a lot of tough questions the previous night when they screened it for whos-who of Seattle music scene. The movie got a nod from likes of Jack Endino, Charles Cross and Bruce Pavitt (check these guys’ facebook pages if you are interested). That only increased the excitement for me.
Brett Morgan introduced the movie and shared his thoughts. No Q&A. I was accompanied by a friend who loves movies but had no clue about Kurt Cobain (yes, there are people like that too. and that too in Seattle). Anyways. I thought that the movie was abstract. I mean, I cannot say I learnt something new about Kurt or feel any different about him after watching the movie. The movie did not let me understand Kurts thoughts any better. To me the movie is like a collage of clips.
Also, I had to explain to my friend how big Nirvana and Kurt Cobain were/are. He could not get that based on the movie. I will say that its definitely a good watch but nothing too special.
