A fever dream within a dream, the latest transmission from celluloid fetishist Guy Maddin is part campy, whacked out tribute to vintage Hollywood melodrama, part anguished crypto-confessional, and all brilliant: a passionate, virtuoso pastiche that is also perversely original and sui generis. It’s the perfect date movie for film lovers - and replete with bathing tips!
Described by Rolling Stone as "the most intimate rock doc ever" this is about as complete and insightful a portrait of Kurt Cobain as we are likely to see. Granted access to the family’s home movies, director Brett Morgan (The Kid Stays in the Picture) goes from the ground up, but never shies away from probing questions or difficult emotional terrain. It’s a must-see.
