Product Description

Amazon.ca

It would be an exaggeration to say that Nick Broomfield solved the murders of Biggie and Tupac. Nonetheless, he makes a convincing case as to who the perpetrators were and why they weren’t brought to justice. Broomfield (Kurt and Courtney), who narrates and appears on camera, comes across like a scruffy Robin Leach, but he's done his homework and sniffs out the clues with the tenacity of a bloodhound. Time and again, he refuses to be intimidated--even when his life appears to be at stake. Fortunately, he was able to convince Voletta Wallace, beloved mother of Biggie Smalls (a.k.a. the Notorious B.I.G.), to cooperate, and that opened many doors. Unfortunately, Afeni Shakur, Tupac’s mother, refused to participate or to allow access to his music. She had nothing to fear. Broomfield is fair to both rappers, although the soundtrack is all-Biggie. Easily one of the most fascinating documentaries of 2002. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, a Must Watch for Fans Oct. 4 2013
By Ishmael
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is essential for anyone who is a fan of the Notorious B.I.G. (aka "Biggie Smalls") and/or 2Pac. Nick Broomfield does a better investigation of their murders than anyone currently in the police force (or who wasn't chased out of the police force at the time). From a cinematographic perspective, the film is also very well put together (with the exception of one scene- you'll understand if you watch the film). Broomfield goes into the project without prior bias or motivation other than curiosity and a passion for truth and justice. Just be warned- it's not exactly light material!

2.0 out of 5 stars Rent It! June 29 2003
Format:DVD
Those expecting any type of insight on the lives or careers of Shakur or Biggie should probably avoid. While there is some mention of Biggie, most of the film is dedicated to the murder investigations.
While the "truth" behind what really happened should obviously be the focus of this film, I felt that a lot more should have been done with telling the audience the backstory. There is little to no mention of the actual feud that these two had. If you don't know anything about Death Row or the artists in the title then you may have trouble following the film. Most of the facts are presented poorly and some of the information like the reports of Snoop being scared for his life are poorly-researched, one-sided, and very much opinionated.
As a huge fan of this entire story, I was bored to death and those who would like a more professional-looking account of the events may want to check out the VH-1 "Behind The Music" on The Notorious B.I.G.

1.0 out of 5 stars One word: Amateurish. May 29 2003
Format:DVD
I regret having bought this DVD. I am a huge fan of both Pac and Biggie and was hoping for a great documentary, after all people were lining up at the Sundance Film Festival 5 deep to see this. Nick Broomfield's techniques are so amateurish I felt embarrassed for him. At one point he "runs out of sound" during an interview, in another part, he chooses to call an important FBI source from his cell phone while DRIVING through traffic. Many of his questions are so full of fluff that one ex cop he questions tells him to ask more specific questions! At one point he approaches someone in a barbershop, seemingly desperate to find someone who knows Biggie--a woman there claims to know him but refuses to be interviewed...why include this??? Broomfield is a rookie at documentaries...I think most film major college students would have made a much better film. Out of the 2 hours of this DVD , I liked maybe 20 min (that included Biggie free styling on a corner when he was younger). If you really want to see this, RENT IT, you'll thank me for it. "Thug Angel" was 3 times better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CONVINCING STORY OF THE 2 GREATEST RAPPERS May 23 2003
Format:DVD
WHEN I HEARD THAT THEY WERE MAKING A MOVIE ON BOTH BIGGIE AND 2PAC I WAS ANXIOUS 2 SEE THIS. I OWN ALMOST EVERY 2PAC AND B.I.G. ALBUM AND WAS FURIOUS WHEN THEY WERE MURDERED. BUT NOW WE HAVE THIS MOVIE WHICH TRIES 2 SOLVE THE MURDER CASES THAT WERE CLOSED YEARS AGO. I BELIEVE AS THE MOVIE TRIES 2 CONVINCE THAT SUGE KNIGHT WAS BEHIND THE MURDERS. BUT THE STREET GANGSTA THAT SUGE PORTRAYS IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS IS NOT SHOWN IN HIS INTERVIEW. INSTEAD HE LOOKS LIKE A BIG PAUL BUNYAN WHO WOULDNT HURT A FLY. THE MAIN CHARACTERS IN THIS MOVIE BESIDES THE 2 RAPPERS ARE NICK BROOMFIELD(DIRECTER), SUGE KNIGHT, VIOLETTA WALLACE(BIGGIES MOTHER), AND RUSSEL POOLE A RETIRED DETECTIVE WHO CLAIMS THAT THE LAPD MAY HAVE HAD SOMETHING 2 DO WITH THE MURDERS. THIS MOVIE DOESNT SOLVE THE MURDERS BUT MADE ME BELIEVE THAT THESE KILLINGS WERE NO ACCIDENT, BUT WERE CAREFULLY PLANNED. BY WHO WE'LL NEVER KNOW.

4.0 out of 5 stars An investigation into their murders... May 3 2003
Format:DVD
This documentary by the provacative director Nick Broomfield explores the murders of rap artists Tupac Skakur and Biggie Smalls. Using his inimitable, slightly shady style, Broomfield tries to prove that the murders were not the result of an East Coast/West Coast feud, as is commonly believed. Instead, he tries to prove that the rappers were killed as a result of their dealings with Death Row Records and its imprisoned leader, Suge Knight. Highly entertaining and informative, I would have given this DVD five stars if the audio quality was not so poor. Regardless, this film is highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Broomfield at his best... May 1 2003
By "mr_pc"
Format:DVD
I've anxiously awaited the release of "Biggie & Tupac" for 3 years now. I've been a huge fan of his work for the last 8 years, having seen a good portion of his movies and having become an avid fan of his style.
This is by far his masterpiece!
Anyone who enjoys the documentary style should see this. It's truly a work of art!
In typical Broomfield style, he pushes his way through people and places that most of us would never even consider going to, never mind having extra body-guards! Having lost a camera-man in what's described as self-preservation, Nick continues his quest for answers.
Great quality print, excellent sound-track, very nice extras and an absolutely fantastic movie that really forces people to see how corrupt real life really is. Check it out!

What could have been a very interesting doco turns into another messy, barely coherent exercise in vanity by Broomfield.
A major problem is Broomfield's narration of events. Read more
