[Perspectives] Where do broken hearts go?
Nick Broomfield has made many documentaries in his long career, some of the best known being Chicken Ranch (1983) and The Leader, His Driver and the Driver’s Wife (1991). His latest production is Whitney Can I Be Me, a documentary about the singer Whitney Houston, who was thrust irrevocably into the spotlight in the 1980s for her beauty and amazing singing voice. She went on to dominate the pop charts for a number of years before drowning in a hotel bath in February, 2012, aged 48 years. Whitney achieved a number of recording industry firsts and bests, including seven consecutive number one hits.
