Customer Review

on 6 February 2012
this is more the story of censorship, financing, coercion of a journalist than of kurt & courtney. starts out with investigating kurt's death and trying to get courtney to do an interview but ends up via threats to funding, legal action etc as being about journalistic censorship which although very worthwhile and interesting it's not what the title suggests and not why i bought the dvd. having read the books who killed kurt cobain and love & death of an icon (by halperin) i was interested in seeing broomfield's (the dvd's journalist) interviews with the people mentioned in these books. it's easy to see how the conspiracy theories came about and how frustrated halperin and his writing partner must have been with all these incredulious witnesses. broomfield doesn't help matters by not being more probing - showing his bias perhaps, and also the diffuculty in making a film in which no-one will give straight answers. there is a very brief unauthorised interview with courtney towards the end but not enough to warrant still calling the film kurt and courtney. perhaps it should have been called something like - kurt and courtney, a lot of people who knew them would like to say something; one journalist's experience of this.
