Malcolm X

In the role that should have won Denzel Washington the Oscar for Best Lead Actor, Malcolm X is a movie that vividly tells the story of the Islamic civil rights leader. Spike Lee told Malcolm's story from his poor upbringing, facing racism early, a life of hustling, being incarcerated to turning his life around and trying to lead the Black community is a positive direction.
