We gave it an A-

Lurid and freakishly arresting, Nick Broomfield’s documentary Kurt & Courtney is an act of guerrilla verite that lures you, like a black magnet, toward a scandalous theory — that Courtney Love may have had her husband, rocker Kurt Cobain, killed. Broomfield orchestrates the conspiracy like a chamber version of JFK. What ultimately emerges is that Cobain did commit suicide, but that Love may have goaded him into it.
