    Telluride Review: Nick Broomfield's 'Tales Of The Grim Sleeper'

    Nick Broomfield’s new documentary is a little bit "Dateline," a little bit Ferguson.

In films like “Biggie & Tupac” and, most notoriously, “Kurt and Courtney,” he seemed unconcerned with the status quo (or possibly lawsuits), making inflammatory claims and taking part in gleeful provocation, a welcome change of pace from the overtly mannered realm of current documentary filmmaking.
