Biggie and Tupac: directed by Nick Broomfield

Barney Hoskyns, Rock's Backpages, June 2002

WHATEVER your take on Broomfield and his bumbling public school fecklessness, there's no denying the bloke makes riveting documentaries. Following up the chilling Kurt and Courtney, Biggie and Tupac is a film about another odd couple – the portly middle-class Brooklynite who reinvented himself as hip hop don the Notorious B.I.G., and the wiry, tat-smothered livewire known simply as "Pac".
