a story of two great friends who had a misunderstanding, a
falling out and who became deadly enemies.
Their murders were long explained as being the result of the
rivalry that had grown up between them, but as the fifth anniversary
of their deaths approaches, award-winning documentary maker
Nick Broomfield reveals startling evidence to suggest the
blame lays else- where.
film traces the lives and violent deaths of former friends
Tupac Shakur and Christopher Wallace (Biggie Smalls), an exploration
that ranges from Los Angeles to New York, from the insistent
calls for justice by Wallace's mother to the unnerving threats,
veiled and unveiled, by Suge Knight.
Unexpectedly moving and tough-minded, at times even wildly,
carelessly brave, this is the film that Broomfield has been
working toward since he started down the documentary path.
If the director makes it through the year alive-and given
some of the revelations he secures, principally from friends
of Wallace/Smalls who, out of love for the dead rapper and
his mother, prove incredibly candid- Broomfield will have
made not just the best film of his career, but one of the
gutsier documentaries in memory."
