  1. One of the better documentaries I'd seen in years -- it plays like a suspense thriller because that's exactly what it is.
  2. At best, a half-finished puzzle, but Broomfield leaves you with questions that few investigators have even dared to ask.
  3. Broomfield conducts riveting interviews with a former LAPD officer, Biggie's fiercely protective mother and assorted hangers-on, but the actual thrust of his evidence seems almost irrelevant.

    Whether or not you buy Mr. Broomfield's findings, the film acquires an undeniable entertainment value as the slight, pale Mr. Broomfield continues to force himself on people and into situations that would make lesser men run for cover.

    This is Oliver Stone country, but Broomfield's self-effacing affect is more Woody Allen,

    Tends to speculation, conspiracy theories or, at best, circumstantial evidence.

    There are lots of conspiracies circling Tupac's death and neither his or Biggies have been solved up to this day. Nick Broomfield goes on aThere are lots of conspiracies circling Tupac's death and neither his or Biggies have been solved up to this day. Nick Broomfield goes on a journey to uncover just what happened to these two rap superstars who during their prime were two of the biggest musicians on the planet. Broomfield discovers new evidence that ultimately reopened the Biggie Smalls murder case and in my eyes proves who killed him. While the Tupac theory in this one is a little far fetched for my liking this is an interesting watch non the less. Expand
