Movie synopsis
Spike Lee brings the life of African-American leader Malcolm X (an intense Denzel Washington in an Oscar-nominated performance) to the big screen in this sprawling, epic biographical drama. Born Malcolm Little, son of a Nebraska preacher, on May 19, 1925, he became one of the most militant leaders and charismatic spokesmen of the black liberation movement before his assassination at the Audubon Ballroom in New York City on February 21, 1965. The film sweeps through his early life as a small-time hustler and thief with his friend Shorty (Lee), his conversion to Islam in jail, and his subsequent life as a controversial spiritual leader and husband of Betty Shabazz (Angela Bassett). Malcolm's tragic assassination is presented as a conspiracy of Nation of Islam leaders; the film shows how his philosophy has been realized in the lives of others who have been moved by his words. Filmed with great visual flair by Lee, the film is a work of entertainment as much as it is a historical artifact. Washington captures the spiritual conversion of the hero with a sincerity that is entirely as believable and ultimately moving as it was in the book that inspired the film, THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MALCOLM X.

X marks the spot!

This is a very good film with excellent acting on the part of Denzel Washington who plays the title role of Malcolm X, who was a civil rights leader dedicated to his spiritual cause. Upon making his pilgrimage to Mecca (filmed on location!) realizes the true brotherhood of his faith and mends the errors of his ways and ultimately paid with his life.A true to life film of both the man and the movement that was his life and soul. Highly recommended to those interested in African-American as well as Islamic history.

Malcolm X (DVD, 2005, Special Edition)

Review For: Malcolm X (DVD, 2005, 2-Disc Set, Special Edition)

As a History Teacher, I read the Book, saw the Movie when it first came out, and seeing this Special Edition with All its Extra Features brings me Joy.

We Really Need Well Done True to History movies. It is a way for those who do not read as well to Feel and Experience What Happened at differing Time Periods. Even if you read the book and are a avid history buff, this DVD and its added Documentaries provides more Visual Depth and Realism to one's understanding and connection with Important Aspects of History.

I never actually met Malcolm and Elijah, but I was Blessed to see and hear them both speak. I watched and saw the continual growth of Malcolm and how he influenced Whites, like me, who only knew Racist and Bigotry as a child. Elijah never seemed, IMHO, to change his continual rant against the 'white devil' and therefore, did not further Racial Understanding and Enlightenment.

I was going through college, at the time, and experiencing all this First Hand was a real Blessing to the furthering of my educational experience in the quest of inspiring students to learn all they can, before forming an opinion on "right and wrong" and hanging on to it, inspite of actual events and information.

I made sure my own children and students viewed and experienced this time period, from the perspective of those who lived it. This Film allows the viewer to form their own opinion on how they wish to view history.

Thank you for allowing me to offer my review of an Excellent Film, and the Extras the 2 Disk Special Edition offers, and the time period that made a difference in my own life.

Terrific Glimpse Into A Great Man

Review For: Malcolm X (DVD, 2005, 2-Disc Set, Special Edition)

This movie completely revolutionized my understand of this powerful Civil Rights figure.

My idea of who Malcolm X was and stood for had been shaped by my childhood in the South. I'd heard of him as the opposite of MLK - sowing discord instead of unity - that he was the black version of the KKK, and that he was just as wrong.

When I finally saw the movie a few years ago, I was shocked to find out how wrong I'd been. I didn't even know he broke with the Nation of Islam (NOI). I certainly had never heard him talk about brotherhood with whites:

"In the past, yes, I have made sweeping indictments of all white people. I will never be guilty of that again - as I know now that some white people are truly sincere... a blanket indictment of all white people is as wrong as when whites make blanket statements about blacks" (The Autobiography of Malcolm X, by Alex Haley, p.395).

I also didn't know that his willingness to criticize his former NOI - including their blanket racism - was part of the reason he was killed by the Black Muslims (with government help).

The thing I find so inspiring about him was his willingness to do an about-face regarding everything he'd done and believed in and stood and fought for - decades of blood and sweat and tears! - and all at great personal risk. That he could have such conviction - not to a position, but to the truth - is overwhelmingly rare in any person. Not the lazy certainty of the dogmatic (i.e., "this only is the truth") or the cowardly uncertainty of the agnostic (i.e., "there is no knowing truth"), but the open-eyed conviction of the truth-seeker!

We all invest ourselves - whether in a belief system or an education or a career or a marriage - until we reach our own "point of no return," and then virtually none of us ever go back on that (at least, not without overwhelming pressure from the outside, a very rare event). Most of us would rather live a lie than lose what we have gained up to that point, or what we want for the future. We so often choose our own comfort at the price of our integrity (I know that I have), that we act to preserve what seems valuable instead of what matters.

Malcolm X. Such courage. Such conviction!

See the movie. Own it. It can change your life.

Malcolm X

This DVD is well- done and tells its story clearly. It covers Malcolm's life, his conversion to Islam and pilgrimage to Mecca effectively. It also clearly depicts his involvement with the Nation of Islam and the circumstances of his death - in front of his family.

Malcom X (1999)

I was told about this film by a friend and so given the price decided to ive a try. I was amazed that i had never heard of this film before now. It is one of the all time greats in my opinion, a few of the statements made within are abit controversial to say the least but the way the whole film is made and the way this man lived his life is like nothing ive ever seen before.
