Spike Lee's controversial film biography of the civil rights leader features an astonishing lead performance from Denzel Washington, who captures Malcolm''s transformation from Boston street hustler and pimp to his prison conversion and reinvention as devoted Muslim. The narrative covers Malcolm''s embrace of Islam and his ascension to brilliant orator and black leader who broke with Elijah Muhammad and underwent a final moral and spiritual recovery on his pilgrimage to the Mecca. Arnold Perl, Lee and an uncredited James Baldwin adapted the screenplay. The cast includes Angela Bassett, Albert Hall, Al Freeman, Jr., Delroy Lindo and Lee. Cinematography by Ernest Dickerson. Music Spike Lee---USA---1992---201 mins.
