Maker Of KURT COBAIN Film Slams Conspiracy Theorists

Monday night (May 4) saw the HBO premiere of "Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck", the new documentary about the late NIRVANA frontman compiled largely from Cobain's archive of home movies, artwork and audio tapes. Even though the film doesn't delve into the details of Cobain's April 1994 suicide, director Brett Morgen told The Pulse Of Radio he's already heard from the conspiracy theorists who continue to believe that Cobain was murdered. "Prior to anyone seeing this film, the 'Holocaust deniers,' as I like to refer to them, started writing conspiracy theories about my movie," he said. "Now this is before anyone's seen a frame. These are people who supposedly like Kurt, I would think, and here's a movie I'm making in which we're gonna share with the world all this material about Kurt, and in fact we're not even going into the last month of his life. And so why would they then start writing conspiracy theories about my movie? And that tells you everything you need to know."

A small group of people have been pushing for 20 years the baseless and completely discredited theory that Cobain was murdered, possibly at the behest of his wife, Courtney Love.

Cobain's body was found on April 8, 1994, three days after he gave himself a massive dose of heroin and killed himself with a shotgun in a room above his garage.

The police have never found any evidence to suggest that Cobain's death was anything but a suicide.

"Montage Of Heck", which has been in limited theatrical release since last month, is constructed like a collage of previously unseen home movies, interviews, animation, photographs, music and other artifacts.

Brett Morgen revealed earlier this week that an album collecting previously unheard music from Cobain's personal tapes will be released this summer.
