  • Katie Walsh

    It’s a journey deep into the psyche of the tormented genius, that is as all-encompassing and expressive of Cobain's spirit as a film could possibly be. It's a true achievement, both in documentary filmmaking, and in preserving the memory and legacy of Cobain.

    What Brett Morgen crafts for his audience - in what may very well come to be known as the definitive documentary on the musician - with Cobain: Montage of Heck (2015) is simply stunning. Morgen runs his coverage of Cobain from the cradle to the grave.

  • Patrick Smith

    Morgen manages to stay clear of hagiography, instead compiling an exhilarating piece of film-making – one that’s fully in keeping with Cobain’s virtuosity.

  • Kevin Harley

    Like a Cobain mixtape brought to feral life, Montage is scruffy, sharp and insightful on an oft-explored subject. The pay-off is terribly moving – it’ll drain you.

  • Clayton Dillard

    Director Brett Morgen distinguishes the biographical documentary by viewing himself as more of a curator than a film director.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    While its unconventional approach eventually becomes a tad wearisome, Morgen’s film proves a uniquely revealing exploration of the development, and eventual disintegration, of the heart and mind (and spirit) of a musician incapable of finding solace in, or transcendence through, his angst.

  • James Dyer

    Slightly overlong and glosses over certain aspects but a profound examination of a tortured artist.

  • Boyd van Hoeij

    Impressive in parts, but wildly uneven as a whole.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    A masterful and often deeply moving portrait of a volatile American genius, a portrait that goes far beyond one man, one family and one rain-sodden small town. It depicts the society that nurtured and fed that genius, and that made his unlikely creative explosion possible, as being the same environment that poisoned him — and suggests that the rise and fall were inextricably connected.

    It’s his home movies with Love and baby — some playful, others drugged and drooling — that fans will find the most emotional viewing. As the credits roll, it’s hard not to just root for the sensitive, progressive, fiercely creative Cobain and wish that he’d lived long enough to find a little peace of mind.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    It proves that Morgen isn’t interested in hagiography. He wants to show us the real Kurt Cobain, warts and all.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • August Brown

    Morgen has crafted an often brilliant, sometimes overheated but always humane documentary, one in which Nirvana’s music and fame is just the scaffolding to Cobain’s inner life.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    Mr. Morgen was given access to Cobain’s archives — “art, music, journals, Super 8 films and audio montages” — and his exhilarating, exhausting, two-hour-plus film, both an artful mosaic and a hammering barrage, reflects years of rummaging through that trove.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • John Anderson

    “Montage” is about expression. As such, it’s a more honest tribute to Mr. Cobain than any conventional documentary could pretend to be.

  • Joshua Rothkopf

    If you’re even remotely a fan, you need to see this.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Lee Marshall

    The film is edited to convey the comet-like arc of a talented, troubled, sensitive soul, but also as a driven, concert-length tribute to that man’s creativity.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    It’s all absorbing stuff, amply conveying the magnetism of a conflicted leader who drew fanatical adoration, yet who one suspects wasn’t easy company (especially in tandem with Love).

    Variety Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Morgen isn’t interested in rehashing the facts and highlights of Cobain’s life and career, or in providing chin-scratching insights via music scholars and other talking heads. He’s made an impression of Cobain, which is a much more intuitive and vital enterprise.
