Saturday, April 5, marks the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death. The Nirvana frontman, who died of an apparent suicide at age 27, has remained one of modern rock's most indelible vanguards. Now, fans can watch the documentary "Kurt & Courtney" for free thanks to SnagFilms.
Director Nick Broomfield ("Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer," "Biggie & Tupac") made the documentary in 1998 as an investigation into the supposed truth behind Cobain's death and the theories it spawned. The film revolves largely on what role Courtney Love may have played in Cobain's death, with some alleging she instigated his murder.
"Kurt & Courtney" opened to a bout of controversy. The documentary was set to premiere at Sundance but was removed from the lineup after Love threatened to sue the festival's organizers. With details about Cobain's death continuing to trickle out, it's a given that we'll never know exactly what happened in the leadup to the rocker's demise. Watch this illuminating film and weigh in with your thoughts on one of music's biggest losses.
