msmichel's rating of the film The Trials of Muhammad Ali

Politically fractured documentary from Bill Siegel (Weather Underground) which seems unsure where to point its finger. The films gaze turns on the 'nation of Islam' and whether Ali was being duped or used by various factions and personalities more than concentrating on the actual legal and political machinations that took place during Ali's long legal battle. The film lacks depth or analysis.
