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

To help sort through the post-mortem media whitewashing since the deaths of Prince & Muhammad Ali, someone's made an app that auto-corrects the creepily ubiquitous phrase "transcended race" to "was retroactively deemed safe by white people". Siegel's doc, along with being engaging, beautifully-paced, well-made, does the same sort of work. You don't get to whitewash Ali or his legacy; nice try, MSM. Rest In Power.
