Fact Is Stranger (And More Entertaining) Than Fiction [read more]
Nick Broomfield finds his way onto DVD
Long before Michael Moore became a household name and proved that documentaries could rival any fictional output Hollywood had to offer, Nick Broomfield was already blazing a pioneering trail, directing a series of interesting, informative and extremely funny documentaries. Paving the way for Roger Cook and McIntyre off McIntyre Investigates, Broomfield often courted controversy with an entertaining take on subjects as serious as White Supremacy and pointy-nosed British dictator, Margaret Thatcher.
Now Metrodome is to present the six-film DVD box-set, Nick Broomfield: Documenting Icons, featuring the BAFTA Award winning Soldier Girls, Chicken Ranch, The Leader, Tracking Down Maggie, Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madam and Fetishes – Fetishes will also see an individual release in special “Fetish” packaging
(Rubber? Leather? A special scat package covered in sweetcorn?), with an extra 47 minutes of exclusive footage. The box-set includes extras such as additional interviews, additional footage, audio commentary, 5 VW Passat TV commercials (?!) and Nick Broomfield – A History. It is unleashed by Metrodome on March 7th.
