I hate to spoil the movie ending for you....

...but he dies in the end.
In trademark Broomfield fashion, these are hardly comfy-chair, perfectly-lit interviews. Broomfield has long fashioned himself a guerrilla filmmaker; the type of person that combines courage with wide-eyed naiveté when hitting the streets for a new interview subject to talk to. In Cobain and Love's world, as viewed through Broomfield, Seattle is a city populated with drug addicts, misfits and shameless lowlifes looking to exploit Cobain's suicide for personal gain. It's disgusting. It's exploitative. And it's constantly fascinating.
