Spike Lee struggled mightily to get 'Malcolm X' made, financially and artistically. But when all was said and done, he produced an epic blockbuster and a definite treatment of the man's life.

There's great differences between the two as well, but to me Lee has many things in common with Oliver Stone. Both of them seem to have been born to make films. Both of them are uncompromising in bringing their artistic (and moral) vision to the screen, and neither will try to seduce the public by catering to their tastes. Both present their own interpretation of facts without apology. (For example, from what I've read it's not certain that Malcolm's father was actually killed by Klansmen. But Lee isn't in the same league as Stone when it comes to playing fast and loose with the "truth.") Stone even ends his movie 'Nixon' in a similar way to 'Malcolm X,' with footage of real-life figures blended in, though I'm not accusing Stone of imitation.

This movie has an epic sweep and scope and as a director Lee is up to the challenge. He is served well by being able to direct in several styles, one of which is almost cartoonish: witness the scene where Malcolm (Denzel Washington) and Shorty (played by Lee himself) go stepping out at the Roseland Ballroom, resplendent in their zoot suits. Some comic relief is welcome at times because otherwise the serious, heavy message of the picture might be overwhelming. For instance, the movie opens with a full-screen shot of an American flag while we hear a voice-over of one of Malcolm's most rousing, or inflammatory speeches, depending on how you look at it ("I accuse the white man of being the greatest murderer on the planet!") The flag begins to burn and eventually forms a flaming 'X' as the fiery rhetoric continues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful... July 11 2004
...is the best way to describe Malcolm X, Denzel Washinton's greatest work in cinema so far. It tells the story of Malcolm X, the strong-willed black revolution leader whose ironic and powerful views differed very differently from Martin Luther Jr.
Denzel Washington gives an extraordinary performance, and with heart he shows the metamorphosis of Malcolm X, from hip young kid, to his life of crime days, to when he was a white-hating civil rights leader.
There are many other great performances in the film, and Spike Lee makes Malcolm X his best "joint" ever. You can feel that this is a Spike lee film, because it is a little strange and it swings from one mood to another. Spike lee also stars in the film, but as a minor character.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching Malcolm X, and it ranks as one of the best film of the '90s. If you love Denzel Washington, you haven't seen him perform until you have seen him in Malcolm X.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Incredible Feb. 10 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I was totally surprised by this film. I had never been a spike lee fan, though I always appreciated his talent, but this film definitely changed my mind. I don't really know where to start, because in my mind, the film is nearly flawless: from Denzel Washington's amazing performance to an ambitious script to Spike Lee's incredible direction (of course putting Oliver Stone to shame in the realm of political biographies). My only complaint involves the ending of the film: a clever but preachy montage of images and voice-over narration that really softens what could have been a tremendous impact at the end. Of course, these are petty complaints. Buy the movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Xceptional Feb. 18 2000
By Chris K
Why did Denzel miss out on an acadamy award for this film is one great mystery to me. His mannerisms, speech and passion is pure Malcolm. And his likeness to Malcolm is uncanny.
A gripping film which is inspirational and confronts all Americans to the reality of racism during those turbulent times. A special visit by none other than Nelson Mandella at the end was surprising and very fitting.
This is a classic drama which you will surely love as much as I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars All I can say is, it was a very well made film. Feb. 26 2000
Malcolm X was a great man who influenced millions through his teachings and words. This film does him justice, beautifully acted with a witty and intelligent screenplay - this is a must see for anyone. The ending is most tender with Nelson Mandela telling the next generation about Mr.X and how he taught our society to be more humane towards others. When the credits started to roll I felt all warm and teary eyed, evidence for a perfect film.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Movie Ever Made By Spike Lee! Sept. 21 2004
By Seema K
Spike Lee did his best with this film. With an excellent choice of Denzel and Angela as Betty, this film truly is an inspiration to all Black and non-Black Muslims such as myself. It truly captivates the beauty of our religion and how one man truly believed in hard work and dedication. The ending was truly the most touching of all and still brings a tear to my eye even today. May the real Malcolm rest in peace. Ameen.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Malcolm X" is one important historical film Aug. 16 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Regardless of the politics, the life and times of Malcolm Little as portrayed in Malcolm X is a true American story. "Malcolm X" can truthfully be said to be one of Spike Lee's best films, which was an important step for him, perhaps the most important one of his career. This biopic, and Spike's fifth full-length feature, makes only partial sense as a follow-up to his other hits, "Do The Right Thing," "Mo' Better Blues" and "Jungle Fever,' the three films in which he created and developed his unique voice and made a name for himself as one of the most prominent independent filmmakers in the US; Spike's own voice can barely be heard in Malcolm X, and his usually immediately recognizable trademarks are tough to point out.

The reason is that for the first time in his career Spike Lee took a step back, and he is not the dominant personality in the film; the dominant personality is Malcolm X himself, and Spike let Malcolm's voice be heard throughout the film louder than anything else. This film was more of a statement than Spike's previous films. Its scope is immensely larger than anything he did before - it does, after all, span 200 minutes gracefully. Spike tackles "Malcolm X" head on the very subjects he treated with symbolism and subtlety in this film, and therefore is a natural and important progression for him. In a biopic, the most important factor is for the director to care about the subject and Mr. Lee clearly proves that.

Malcolm X boasts a huge ensemble casts, with wonderful performances by Delroy Lindo, Angela Bassette, Al Freeman Jr. (in a harrowing performance as Muslim extremist Elijah Muhammad) and Spike Lee himself - but the movie is still entirely Malcolm X's, and therefore Denzel Washington's.
