We met up with director Brett Morgen, the man responsible for one of the one of the most highly anticipated music documentaries in recent years "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck." The Oscar-nominated filmmaker was allowed unfettered access to the Nirvana singer's archives, stitching together an unflinchingly intimate portrait of a man which includes never before seen artwork, journal entries, and incredible home videos, from Cobain as a child right through to mere months before his death. "Montage…" also features interviews with the singer's family members on camera for the first time ever. Vice's Kim Taylor Bennett talked to Morgen about the legacy of Cobain, his paradoxical nature, the women in his life, and the daunting task of accurately portraying a man so revered.
Montage of Heck premieres May 4th on HBO.
