Synopsis

Three documentaries from maverick filmmaker Nick Broomfield looking at three iconic underground figures. In 'Aileen - Life and Death of a Serial Killer' (2002), Broomfield revisits one of his earlier films to explore the conviction of Aileen Wuornos, one of the USA's first female serial killers. In 'Kurt and Courtney' (1998) Broomfield looks at the unconventional relationship between grunge icon Kurt Cobain and his wife Courtney Love, and explores the theories that Love may have had something to do with Kurt's suicide. Finally, in 'Biggie and Tupac' (2002), Broomfield investigates the unsolved gangland murders of two of hip hop's biggest stars, uncovering new evidence that could point to the complicity of the LAPD.
