Was it a suicide? Nick Broomfield tries to find out.

Kurt & Courtney was a documentary that Nick Broomfield and on again/ off again collaborator Joan Churchill made. They were looking into the "suicide" of Kurt Cobain and searching for what may or may not have happened. What they found made the case even more confusing (or maybe not). The intrepid Nick Broomfield and Joan Churchill travel throughout the seedy parts of the American west coast looking for answers and interviewing those who knew Kurt and Courtney and their relatives. People's interviews contradict each others and they pose more questions than actual answers. What really happened?

People like El Duce and one of Courtney's ex-boyfriends are among the many who are interviewed. A private investigator and Courtney's estranged father is questioned as well. An interesting look into the lives of pop music's most oddest couple as well as a search for the truth. Broomfield and Churchill find out for themselves that the truth is definitely stranger than fiction...times ten. After watching this film I get the feeling that not even Mr. Broomfield knows anything more than he already knew. Overall it's a fascinating movie because we get a look at the side of Courtney Love that she has completely tried to forget and a human side to grunge's most famous junkie.
