  • Malcolm X [1992]
    Kashif Ahmed

    Epic masterpiece about the life and times of Hajji Malik Al-Shabazz a.k.a. Malcolm X. Having worked together on the underrated 'Mo Better Blues' (1990) actor Denzel Washington and director Spike Lee ('Do The Right Thing') joined forces once again to adapt Al Shabazz and Alex Haley's 'The Autobiography of Malcolm X'. The book recounts in great detail the extraordinary life of Hajji Malik Al Shabazz: Born Malcolm Little in an America riven with racial hatred; the young boy witnesses the murder of his father by 'The Ku-Klux-Klan', goes off the rails into a life of crime, is imprisoned, converts to Islam and rises to become an unparalleled force in the civil rights movement.

    Denzel Washington gives the performance of his life as Malcolm X; every aspect of his character is illuminated without fear or favor. And we get an incredible insight into the man's spiritual and intellectual journey from victim to hoodlum to eloquent visionary and inspirational leader. The supporting cast are also on excellent form; Angela Basset is superb as Betty Shabazz (movie trivia fans may be interested to know that she went onto reprise the role some years later in the movie 'Panther') whilst Albert Baines, Delroy Lindo and Al Freeman Jr. also give subtle and affecting performances.

    'Malcolm X' is a modern classic, arguably Washington's finest hour as an actor (or at least on a par with his role as Steve Biko in 'Cry Freedom') and without question, the best film of Lee's directorial career. A must have for anyone whose serious about film.
