Kurt Cobain has been the subject of several documentaries of varying quality, but the upcoming authorized “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck” looks to be the definitive one. Frances Bean Cobain, Cobain’s daughter with Courtney Love, is the executive producer and director Brett Morgan enjoyed unprecedented access to all things Cobain, according to Slashfilm. Morgan had the full cooperation of Cobain’s friends and family over the eight year period he produced the film, and it will feature never before seen home movies, artwork, notebooks, journals; and even an unreleased 12 minute acoustic track.
