Nick Broomfield Interviewing El Duce About Kurt Cobain’s Death

I won’t start on the whole discussion of whether or not Kurt Cobain was murdered and whether or not Courtney Love had anything to do with it. It’s been 17 years, to the day, of the Nirvana front man’s death and it’s as moot a point as ever. That doesn’t mean that I won’t continue to love Nick Broomfield‘s documentary “Kurt and Courtney” for scenes like the one I share today. El Duce, who claims to have been offered money by Love to “whack” Cobain, is as addressed hard to rely on as a witness. But as a character, he is awesome. Truth schmuth, to me it’s all about personality, and while we don’t get enough of Broomfield’s typically fascinating first-person protagonist here, it’s more than made up with the interview subject on hand. In terms of Broomfield characters, he’s up there with Aileen Wuornos and Violetta Wallace as favorites.

As for the reality of Cobain’s death, all I can say is that it’s a shame he’s not still around and I hope he’s resting in peace.

    L-Canitine, because these are not better or safer than the other coffee diet.

  2. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with
    internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
    Thanks
