Kurt Cobain Biopic. Tribute Or Exploit?

Kurt Cobain must be spinning in his grave.

An artist who shunned celebrity, and was ultimately killed by the torment it caused, would never stand for the exploitation of his life.

Sure, it might be done in good taste, but it’s still exploitation.

Not to say that I won’t check it out. I’m just saying that I don’t think Kurt Cobain would approve.

But I didn’t know him personally, so I could be wrong. Then again, he killed himself in part due to his sudden massive fame, the antithesis of what he stood for, so my opinion could be very valid.
