Cobain film gets first viewing in Toronto

Cobain
The highly- anticipated documentary “Kurt Cobain: About A Son,” had its
world premiere last night at Toronto’s Cumberland Theatre. Director AJ Schnack culled twenty-five hours
of audiotaped interviews conducted by writer Michael Azerrad for his
1993 book Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana; the effect is that Cobain narrates his own story.

The soundtrack, curated by Seattle musician/producer Steve Fisk and Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard,
compiles music that served as inspiration for the singer; no Nirvana
music is included, which will no doubt upset some (younger) fans, but the candid
conversations with Azerrad that make up the film offer a
sweet insight into Cobain’s humor and foresight. “I hope people get a
sense of him that they haven’t before,” Schnack said before the
screening.
