Filmmaker Spike Lee, star Denzel Washington (the New York, Boston and Chicago Film Critics' choice as 1992's Best Actor) and other talents vividly portray the life and times of the visionary leader. "One of the decade's best and most important films." (Arch Campbell, WRC-TV/Washington D.C.) One of the most charismatic and politically controversial voices in history, Malcolm X burst into the public consciousness with a radical perspective on race relations in America. His inspiring and enlightening ideologies touched and continue to influence the lives of millions. The New York Film Critic's Circle awarded Denzel Washington Best Actor for his role in what Newsday calls "an extraordinary movie...powerful and compelling. Denzel Washington's performance is a tour de force!"
. A tribute to the controversial black activist and leader of the struggle for black liberation. He hit bottom during his imprisonment in the '50s, he became a Black Muslim and then a leader in the Nation of Islam. His assassination in 1965 left a legacy of self-determination and racial pride.. Malcolm X Wiki
It’s so hard to catch and preform iconic characters like Tupac Malcolm X Or maybe even a Prince. This is by far Spike Lee’s best. Denzel played this part so good that I see Malcolm X when I see him. Being able to catch the life span of Malcolm without doing damage to it or boring the audience was amazing. This movie is an essential part of African culture and also the history of the United States of America
And Denzel's greatest performance
Would love to see the movie Panther on iTunes Store I buy frequently, so Apple I am making a request to add Panther.
Excellent story telling.
This is one of the ones Denzel should have gotten the Oscar for.
A great film by a great actor and filmmaker
What a great portrayal of brother Malcolm X. Watched this when it first came out and again in 2014. May he rest in peace. As a true Martyr of Islam ..for he finally found peace before death. Pray he is in heaven.
I had viewed this film many years ago not appreciating enough its brilliance and value as a historical statement. Denzel Washington's performance was flawless.
From the acting to the directing this powerful reenactment is a magnificent classic! Alex Haley is a brilliant writer and Spike Lee grabbed his masterpiece and made it come to life on the screen.
Spike Lee outdoes himself in this riveting movie. Denzel Washington is outstanding. Only he could play this role. This is a MUST SEE!!!!!
This movie deserve to be watch again and again. In my opinion, the best Spike Lee movie ever!!!
One of the best films I have seen. Denzel Washington gives a powerful performance!
