Synopsis

The story of Malcolm X, controversial and influential Black and Muslim leader. Born Malcolm Little, his father was killed by white supremacists. He discovered the Nation of Islam writings in jail and soon became a powerful civil rights leader, fighting for equality “by any means necessary”.

Our take

A bravura biopic from writer-director Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing, BlacKkKansman), this insightful, engrossing epic does full justice to its subject: civil rights leader Malcolm X. A nuanced exploration of the man and the myth, anchored by a rousing performance from Denzel Washington.
