I know alice wheeler took pictures of the band, and knew kurt well. but he wasn’t a saint…no matter how much she paints him as such. he just wasn’t.
I respect her opinion on “MOH”….but I also respectfully disagree.
hey, what happened , happened. kurt wasn’t shy about taking movies of himself.
the only part of MOH that I considered “cringe worthy” was kurt holding frances , and he was so wasted. everyone knows kurt used heroin, I didn’t need it shoved in my face.
kurt made the decision to end his life. fine…(well not FINE, but I can see that)
he’s not here, and left all his “stuff”. and nothing written, as a will, to say what his wishes actually were. it’s easy to say, “oh kurt would think this, or that”….
but we don’t KNOW.
and Alice still says that courtney got kurt on heroin…..oh please. that’s not true. he was using when he and courtney became a couple. even Mary lou Lord , when he met her in September…..he was in withdrawal.
and “MOH” is told from courtney’s standpoint? interesting , since she had nothing to do with it , other than granting her permision for morgen to get into the storage facility. strictly hands off.
so is she blaming frances? she should tread lightly, there.
so “kurt was blissfully happy” in Olympia? so why did he leave and never go back?
and i note, alice got two plugs in for her book. nice. and insult other people for “making money off kurt”……….I mean, they are her photos. but don’t
insult other people in the same breath.
and that “ his manipulation of Kurt’s family.“, crack ……..she makes kurt’s family sound like a bunch of hicks who were taken advantage of by the big city director.
not impressed, Alice. Not impressed at ALL.
and since we are throwing around “what kurt would think”…….I don’t THINK he would think MUCH of your review…..or your insulting his family.
