Denzel Washington is unforgettable in the title role of Lee’s epic biopic of the famed black leader.

Based on Malcolm X’s autobiography (as told to Alex Haley), the film traces his transformation from a street hood to a cultural icon after a conversion to Islam and follows his life until it was cut short by his assassination in 1965. (202 mins, 35mm)
