 Malcolm X Recap - Movie Tome
Spike Lee's "Malcolm X" is one of the great screen biographies, celebrating the whole sweep of an American life that began in sorrow and bottomed out on the streets and in prison before its hero reinvented himself.
The movie then follows Malcolm as he sheds his last name - the legacy, the Muslims preached, of slaveowners - and becomes a fiery street-corner preacher who quickly rises until he is the most charismatic figure in the Black Muslims, teaching that whites are the devil and that fls must become independent and self-sufficient.
A revealing scene in "Malcolm X" shows Malcolm on the campus of Columbia University, where a young white girl tells him that her heart is in the right place and that she supports his struggle.

 Malcolm X
Malcolm barely acknowledged concern for his wife or children's feelings before the end of his life when he was becoming more aware that it was likely to be cut short.
Malcolm devoted a large portion of his book to that short period of his life, the trip to Mecca and the subsequent conversion during his last year, and Lee did likewise in the movie.
Where the movie was only three hours long, although long by movie standards, in that time Lee attempted to tell the story of a 473-page book, so his rearranging the chronology and condensing and overlapping the characters' lines and roles is understandable and justifiable.

 Aalmuhammed v. Lee   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-19)
Aalmuhammed claimed that the movie Malcolm X was a "joint work" of which he was an author, thus making him a co-owner of the copyright.
Malcolm X is a copyrightable work, and it is undisputed that the movie was intended by everyone involved with it to be a unitary whole.
In a movie this definition, in the absence of a contract to the contrary, would generally limit authorship to someone at the top of the screen credits, sometimes the producer, sometimes the director, possibly the star, or the screenwriter-- someone who has artistic control.

 Malcolm X and A Little Blonde Co-Ed
In the barely three-second shot, Malcolm X (Denzel Washington), having just delivered a fiery college speech, is leaving the stage when a white female student momentarily blocks his path and asks what she, as a white person, can do to help improve racial relations.
Several times in his autobiography, Malcolm X brings up the encounter he had with "one little blonde co-ed" who stepped in, then out, of his life not long after hearing him speak at her New England college.
Malcolm X realized, too late, that there was plenty this "little blonde coed" could have done, that his response to her was inconsistent with what he, his associates, and all fl people wanted to accomplish.

 Laramie Movie Scope: Malcolm X
Sometimes going to see a movie that is good for you is like eating a food that is good for you, but that you don't like, broccoli, for instance, or like seeing ``Howard's End,'' a movie experience not greatly different than a visit to the dental hygienist to have your gums bled.
Malcolm X, I'm happy to say, is educational, but, like good food, is not hard to swallow.
The rumor on this film is that Malcolm X's widow had a lot of input into it and that would explain why she comes across so very powerfully and positively in the film.

 ArtForum: Consumed by images - analysis of the movie Malcolm X - Culture Wars
Again, although Malcolm's widow, Betty Shabazz, told Lee that she and Malcolm did not argue (the Nation of Islam deemed obedience paramount in a wife), the film shows her "reading" him in the same bitchified way that Lee's previous fl women characters talk to their mates.
Lee seems primarily fascinated not by Malcolm the political revolutionary--not by critique of racism in conjunction with imperialism and colonialism, and certainly not by the critique of capitalism--but by Malcolm's early view of racism as a masculinist phallocentric power-struggle between white and fl men.
Thus the film's major moment of political resistance is the episode in which Malcolm galvanizes Nation of Islam men in a face-off with white men around the issue of police brutality, scenes in which he is portrayed as a Hitler-type leader, ruling with a leather-clad iron fist.

 Malcolm X Movie Review at Hollywood Video
Anchored by Denzel Washington's tour-de-force performance in the title role, Malcolm X is an across-the-board triumph, from Ernest Dickerson's stunning cinematography to Lee's masterful direction.
Using The Autobiography of Malcolm X (as told to Alex Haley) as his template, Lee vividly charts the title character's journey from small-time hood to charismatic leader of the Nation of Islam.
While he's lately been wasting his talent on such unfocused diatribes like Bamboozled and She Hate Me, Malcolm X is a monumental achievement—and a potent reminder of Lee's great skill behind the camera.

Although Malcolm X is not Spike Lee's best film, it's an important film that needed to be made, and it's a good thing that Spike was the one to do it.
