    This was a long but interesting film on Netflix. I remember watching Malcolm X on TV and loathed his rhetoric.
    His ministry under the direction of Elijah Muhmmad never really helped the black community and in most cases made it worse. The film was produced & directed by Spike Lee and received Oscar nominations.

    I watched it some years ago. Very well done and interesting movie, but I bet a lot of it had a fabricated slant to it. People who stir up hate in people, never solve anything. They just make it all worse.

    The best thing about that movie was Denzel Washington. Sigh.

    I saw a movie on Malcolm and Martin and their wives, this 'was' a great movie regarding 2 great men, one misguided in his efforts,
    but nevertheless - times were hard

    I think I saw that film. But now I have cancelled Netflix.

    So did my son, Bill and I was baffled. But, he's adamant.

    I don't plan on watching this as I remember him and recall his murder very well.

    I thought about watching it once, and might.
