This documentary is directed by Gus Van Sant and it is
looking into the life and untimely death of the 90s rock icon Kurt Cobain. The video
itself, character wise, is more resembling to an autobiography rather than a
documentary.

The opening of the documentary is a narrative by Cobain
himself. He is not sown in the film until the very end. The filmmakers used time-lapse
and still photography in the documentary to portray Cobain’s birthplace on the Northwest,
i.e. Aberdeen along with Olympia, and Seattle. These particular locations portray
Cobain`s words.

The music written by Cobain and the absence of any picture
generates a feeling of absence. The soundtrack combines an ambient score from
producer Steve Fisk and Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and his favorites
like David Bowie. ‘About a Son’ nowhere suggest that it will provide a
definitive portrait of Cobain.
