About this product
- DescriptionOver the past 25 years, Nick Broomfield has established himself as Britain's best-known and most unflaggingly controversial documentary director. Fetishes , his sustained peep inside an upscale Manhattan S&M parlour, was commissioned - and then banned - by Channel Four. Biggie and Tupac , his investigation into the gaudy and short-lived lives of rap stars Biggy Smalls and Tupac Shakur, pointed the finger of guilt at the police. His diptych of films about female serial killer Aileen Wuornos inspired the feature film Monster . And even before these explosive works hit the screen, Broomfield was already a sinecure of British television, the on-camera documentarian in headphones, toting his own boom-stick as he pursued the likes of Margaret Thatcher ( Tracking Down Maggie ) and South African white supremacist Eugene Terreblanche ( The Leader, His Driver, and The Driver's Wife .) This is Broomfield in his own words, as frank and revealing as his inimitable films.
