It inspired me…
As I watched MALCOLM X, I was surprised how much I liked the film and how interesting it was. So interesting, in fact, that I soon was inspired to read “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” that was compiled and written by Alex Haley. Then, I read a rather interesting (warts and all) account of Malcolm X’s mentor, Elijah Mohammad.
From what I have since learned from these and other sources, I was quite impressed at the movie–it seemed to try very hard to get the story right. Malcolm X’s life was neither over-glorified nor was he portrayed the opposite–the story seemed to be quite balanced and without a serious ax to grind. It would have been easy to make the movie just an attack on the Nation of Islam or an attempt to make the title character some sort of saint.
As for the acting, it was super. The script, excellent. The direction, first-rate. An excellent film that everyone should see–it is fascinating from start to finish.
