This powerful Spike Lee film back in 1992 displayed Denzel Washington’s range as an actor. This film was a combination of all the things that make both Denzel and Spike as well known as they have become. The film follows the life of Malcolm X, a controversial figure in his day for his strong beliefs in a time where African Americans were fighting for a voice. Just as all of his movies to date, this film made a powerful statement through Denzel’s acting. With every speech and monologue delivered, Denzel shakes the audience to their core with his booming and emotional voice. As far as biography films are concerned, Malcolm X remains one of the best and most thought-provoking pieces in film history.
