Hit So Hard review

Purportedly the story of drummer Patty Schemel’s (’90s alt-rockers Hole) rise and fall, but really an attempt to shoehorn in as much of her home-filmed Kurt Cobain footage as possible, P David Ebersole’s scrappy documentary is a mess of talking heads sharing half-remembered truths.

What hits hardest is how, without Cobain’s talent, grunge’s veneration of self-obsession/destruction really curdles.

“I am announcing my persona as a cunt!” slurs chief culprit Courtney Love, just another hollow-eyed survivor of the era who has seemingly learnt nothing at all.
