Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck director Brett Morgen reacted to murder conspiracy theorists in a new Sup Doc interview. Morgen’s Cobain film came out in 2014.
“It shouldn’t bother me at all, but I find it so disturbing.”
“The conspiracy folk is not a critique of Montage of Heck, that has nothing to do with my work or my art, that has to do with conspiracy theories. What is particularly weird for me about that is this is a subject that I had access to more material than anybody has ever had access to on the planet.
I had no idea, I went into it with an open mind, so my opinions on Kurt are entirely based upon nothing but primary sources and access to things that nobody in the world has ever had access to. So when I hear about these conspiracies, it’s hard to take them seriously because you are like, you are ignoring every single footprint in this person’s life, everything. This is not like Walter Kronkite committed suicide and you’re like, wait, Walter Kronkite committed suicide, that is so weird and out of character!”
The interviewer said, “You were given boxes and boxes of information that wasn’t out.”
Morgen responded, “Right.”
