Aroview: Plucky British journalist and one-man controversy machine Nick Broomfield embarks on his most dangerous documentary enquiry yet – the killings of rap superstars Tupac Shakur and then Biggie Smalls, officially the victims of unrelated incidences of gang violence.

Developing a complicated conspiracy theory, ‘evidence’ increasingly points to the intimidating figure of “Death Row Records” boss, Suge Knight, whom Broomfield eventually tracks down and confronts in a state penitentiary! Made in the identical, idiosyncratic style of his other tawdry investigations, this is as compelling as any of them, even if the stranger-than-fiction factor is now expectedly high, and it arguably comes up short of a crucial revelation.
