An Unknown Masterpiece

News came Friday of a big studio deal for an official Kurt Cobain biopic. Because it will be executive produced by widow Courtney Love’s lawyer, Howard Weitzman, many will doubt its worth, or its ability to be truthful about Love. (Some Kurt fans still blame her for his death, explicitly or implicitly: see Kurt and Courtney. And Courtney looks so bizarre after extensive plastic surgery that she’s easy to blame: What is less grunge than remaking your entire body?)

Nonetheless, this will be based on the best Cobain biography, "Heavier than Heaven," produced by the formidable team behind Working Title, among others, and written by David Benioff, probably.

You could do worse. Of course, you might not agree, but that would just be your opinion. Who cares? Which is Cobain’s point in this vastly-underappreciated song. (From a solo appearance for a radio broadcast.)
