Whitney Houston Documentary Coming From ‘Kurt And Courtney’ Director, Nick Broomfield

whitneyhouston__120927161425

 

If you have watched ‘Kurt and Courtney’, you know Nick Broomfield is a controversial filmmaker, the documentary was more and less a biopic about Cobain’s short and sad life, trying to uncover the conspiracy theory surrounding his death, and Broomfield managed to anger Courtney so much that years later, Broomfield described the experience as ‘scary,’ and ‘a complete nightmare’. And who can forget the El Duce scene, showing the LA musician screaming in front of the camera ‘She offered me 50 grand to whack Kurt Cobain, blow his fucking head off,’… Then, just two days after that interview was filmed, El Duce was hit by a train in the middle of the night and killed. It has to give you the chills! Broomfield is also responsible for many other controversial movies pursuing subjects such as Margaret Thatcher, Eugene Terre Blanche of the Afrikaner AWB movement, Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss, serial killer Alleen Wuornos, and also Biggie and Tupac.

The English filmmaker is now involved in a new film about Whitney Houston for BBC two, a project described as a movie which ‘goes in search of the forces that made and then destroyed the singer’. As everyone remembers, the famous singer died just 4 years ago, of an accidental drowning in her bathtub, but cocaine and a heart condition were also into play.

You can trust Broomfield to dig into this, but it is unclear at the moment ‘to what extent the Houston family is involved in Broomfield’s documentary — if at all’…but who cares, Broomfield is used to unauthorized documentaries, at the time of the release of ‘Kurt and Courtney’, Love threatened legal action to stop its release and she even managed to cancel a screening of the movie at the Sundance Film Festival. It was that damaging!

Houston’s family heavily criticized last year’s Lifetime biopic, ‘Whitney,’ which was directed by Angela Bassett and starred Yaya DaCosta in the title role, so it is very likely that this new film, especially directed by Broomfield, will not be welcome with open arms. There’s still so much we don’t know about Houston’s death, for example, her driver’s ;icense had been removed from her wallet, and there was many unclear things related to the drugs (legal and illegal) she had taken…

I was amazed to read how many journalists dismissed his Kurt and Courtney doc using ‘bad’ or other derogative adjectives to describe it. Broomfield has a history with documenting women that he found controversial and, of course, I greatly admire his bold and fearless approach, defying the nonsense consensus to look for the truth. This new Whitney Houston doc is gonna be good.
