Excellent and interesting
I was only familiar with the history and influence of Malcolm X before I saw the film so I can’t really judge it’s faithfulness or accuracy. But as a film, I thought it was great. I really like Spike Lee; he keeps things fast-paced and interesting with his camera angles and colours/lighting. For awhile after Malcolm first begins his activism with the nation of Islam, you find yourself conflicted, both respecting the man and often disagreeing with him. Lee handles it well without condemning or supporting really, just showing Malcolm’s gradual transition in his beliefs. The inserted documentary footage, especially at the end, shows how Malcolm’s words still relate today. Someone commented that they only watched an hour of the movie and Lee doesn’t know how to tell a story but maybe if they would be slightly more open-minded, realize it’s not a literal adaptation of the autobiography, and actually finish the film, they could understand that Lee does not just want to tell the story of one man but rather wants it to reflect the struggle of a race. I really enjoyed the film; it was long but never slow and definitely worth watching.
The Truth seeker
I think the major success of Alex Haley with this movie is that he tells the story of a dynamic person known as ‘Malcolm X’ with such a skill that no man from any part of any society get his feelings hurt. I think it is a commendable effort from Alex Haley, Spike Lee and Danzel Washington that they made a hero out of Malcolm X. I think he deserved it because he was the man who was not after money or popularity……he changed his statements, his way of life , even his faith as he knew that those were true. The theme of the movie is very clear that Malcolm X was not a hardliner rather he was always open for truth. Secondly, it also emphasized though in the end that negotiations and reforms is a better way than the violence. But yet it also gave the message that the ruling races reap the violence which they breed themselves; sometimes in the hegemony of their power or sometimes due the wrong interpretation of their religious verdicts. I think it was right to hit at the ‘ Black organization known as nation of Islam’ and Elijah Muhammad. Muslim community is itself greatly indebted to this movie because Elijah Muhammad’s teaching were very far from Islam. The real Islam practiced worldwide does not believe in the continuance of prophet-hood after Muhammad (P.B.U.H)and the Black supremacy by Elijah Muhammad was a ridiculous idea as Islam does not believe in Nationalism. Any Muslim anywhere in the world whether black or white are equal in Islam’s teachings. It was great to see the scenes of pilgrimage to Makkah ……. these were not unnecessary ……because they helped us to understand the sudden change in the teachings of Malcolm X. Denzel’s acting is really superb and also that of Al Freeman Jr. I think this movie is an invaluable resource for the people who want to take an insight into the Malcolm X’s life.
