‘About a Son’ Hits DVD This Month


Finally, a film I’ve been seemingly waiting forever to see is hitting DVD. AJ Schnack’s ‘About a Son’ will see it’s way into all of our homes via Shout Factory on February 19th. I know my fellow Film Junk podcast co-host Greg had a chance to see this at the Toronto International Film Festival and had nothing but good things to say about it.

I was a pretty huge Nirvana fan in my teens, and still remain to be in my late twenties, even if I have sort of moved on to other things. I’m hoping About a Son will satisfy any curiosities I may have regarding Cobain and his seemingly anti-social, cynical views on music and the world. Even if you’re not a fan of Nirvana’s music, you must admit the role they played in inspiring teens around the world, giving them a bit of a push towards discovering some of the more underground musicians they consistently raved about. Artists such as Flipper, Daniel Johnston, The Vaselines and The Buzzcocks were always on the lips of the three (sometimes four) members of Nirvana, and I must admit to checking out the aforementioned bands through this exact means of discovery.

Anyways, if you’re interested in Nirvana and have a hankering for some inventive documentary film making, check out AJ’s ‘About a Son’ this month.
