Kurt Cobain About A Son has been lauded for not only its intimate look into the inner workings of Cobains tortured genius, but also because of director AJ Schnacks stunning visuals, filmed in the places Cobain lived, and the haunting score by Steve Fisk and Death Cab for Cuties Ben Gibbard. Now, on the first-ever Blu-ray release of this acclaimed documentary, both of these essential elements are even more stunning than on the DVD release.
Based on more than 25 hours of previously unheard audiotaped interviews conducted with Cobain by music journalist Michael Azerrad for his book Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana. In the film, Kurt Cobain recounts his own life - from his childhood and adolescence to his days of musical discovery and later dealings with explosive fame - and offers often piercing insights into his life, music, and times.
