Summary: In truth, you can’t let go of something that you never had. And he lets go of you because in truth, he always liked the pain.

Pairing: Reader x Captain Boomerang

“So, you think I’m broken? Then fix me.”

“See, ‘s where yer wrong, luv.”  Boomerang started, a cigarette hanging from his forefinger. He’s leant against an abandoned brick wall. A dust of smoke dances across his features in the street lit shadows. The city is burned to ashes; much like the two of you. “None of us can be fixed.”

“Instead you’re just going to wait for us to self-destruct?” You asked; the question falls loosely from your tongue. “Nothing can beat Flag’s version of Hollywood Squares unless it’s us actively deciding to kill ourselves first, right?”

I thoroughly enjoyed Montage of Heck, from start to finish.

It’s an impeccably edited and assembled documentary that deserves all the acclaim it’s been receiving.

I’m a huge Nirvana fan and have been since I was about 15 years old,  did I learn anything new in terms of the band? No.  Yet I learned a whole lot more about Kurt Cobain.    If you’re after new Nirvana tracks or treasures you won’t see anything new here, but if you’re after a deeper insight to Kurt you’ll get amazing home video footage of him as a child growing up and some eye opening stuff with him and Courtney.  

It’s definitely an emotional documentary but also pretty shocking at times.  We all knew Kurt was pretty fucked up, his troubles are well documented as is his heroin addiction but seeing it with your very eyes is incredibly harrowing.    The scenes with him and Courtney are incredibly adorable, when they’re not high that is.   We see footage of them basically living in squalor, high as a kite whilst pregnant and generally strung out.

It’s incredibly sad. I knew it happened but seeing it happen is even worse.

These scenes intercut with diary entries and song lyrics really help give a picture of Kurt’s mind set at the time better than any expose, book or documentary on the subject that I’ve seen before.   You really see how his troubled upbringing affected him in the long term.

The direction is top notch throughout,  I admit I wasn’t sure on the animation scenes I saw in the trailer but they work so damn well in the finished film.  They help bring to life audio recordings, his diary and generally help to add visuals where visuals don’t exist.   The animation itself is incredibly well done, the assembled montage segments are inter cut with incredible precision flowing with the beat of the music. 

There’s always going to be that argument surrounding his death, for me this documentary just further highlights the fact that he was a man on the edge who’d had enough. Withdrawn, addicted and tired he decided to do what he had to do to be free of it all.

The film doesn’t go in to detail of his death or the aftermath but then again we’ve heard it all before. Yet I do feel it would have helped close the documentary better as an all-round complete look at his life,  also the absence of Dave Grohl is noticed.   Grohl apparently filmed interview segments but they weren’t done in time to meet the edit deadline and therefore didn’t make the cut,  I definitely thought this would have added an extra element. I would have also been interesting to hear from Chad Channing or Jason Everman to make this the complete Cobain doc but alas they’re absent here.  

If you’re a fan of Nirvana and Kurt you will love this documentary,  I thought I knew pretty much all there was to know but there is so much in here I never knew and it was enlightening.  It’s so well directed and edited,  the whole thing is put together amazingly and was well worth the wait.

If you’re looking for a deeply intimate portrait of the man he was (the good and the bad)  Cobain: Montage of Heck is it!
