How Bad Can One Filmmaker Suck?

Nick Broomfield makes terrible, unwatchable documentaries. Kurt & Courtney, Biggie & Tupac, and Aileen Wuornos: Selling of a Serial Killer are some of the worst things I have ever seen. Shoddy reportage, weak framing, boring set-ups (if there are any set-ups) and overplayed subjects (read the list of titles). Having said all this, he is my ultimate hero. How do you keep finding funds for your nonsense, Nick Broomfield? Do the people you solicit for money require they be shown your finished product? Do any of them want to pony up to get AWOL off the ground?

I realize this is far removed from the other stuff I've posted, but I don't know if I want a discussion here. Post comments if you must, but I want it posted on record that I hate everything I've ever seen from this guy. Also, I can make some pretty good chili. So there.
