In Russia rolled out a limited documentary film “Devil’s installation” of the youth idol 90s Kurt Cobain. Premiere was held in February at the Independent Film Festival “Sundance”, according to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta».
Almost 85% of the materials of the film have not been demonstrated at all (or very rarely on display). Directed by Brett Morgen worked on the film for eight years, collecting rare, including previously unknown archival records – paintings, diaries Cobain, his dictaphone recordings and home movies, memories of friends. He received unprecedented access to the personal files of the musician, who after his death was divided between the parties Nirvana and Cobain family. It is known that precursor Morgen had problems with it. After the scandalous film-investigation, “Kurt & Courtney” in which the creators have put forward the version that Cobain’s widow, Courtney Love may have ordered the killing of the actor, it is extremely reluctant to shared information and documents related to the dead husband. But co-produced “Devil’s installation” made of Cobain and Love’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain, which facilitated the task of collecting information for the director.
Morgen tries to reconstruct the inner world of the artist in his development – from early childhood to the last days before his suicide. The film is largely built on the animated inserts made on the basis of drawings and poetic passages in the notebooks of the musician, and the world that produces a terrible impression. Predatory babies in the womb, demonic creatures, blood, eyes glazed in terror come to life imposed on Cobain’s songs. But the most sinister impression produced is infinitely repeating lines derived close handwriting Kurt – “kill yourself, kill yourself …”. On the last album there’s a song Nirvana, “I hate myself and want to die».
Kurt Cobain appears the man doomed to suicide. Eternal difficult teenager who hates the world, suffering from daily unbearable stomach pains – at some point he just tired to suffer.
