The movie is based on the life of civil rights leader Malcolm X, from his childhood in Nebraska to his assassination in 1965. The movie explores Malcolm's transformation from a petty criminal to a powerful speaker and leader in the Nation of Islam, and later, his split from the organization and his journey to Mecca.

The movie features a powerful performance from Denzel Washington as Malcolm X, as well as appearances by Angela Bassett and Delroy Lindo. The story is a moving portrayal of one of the most important figures in the civil rights movement and his impact on American history.

The movie received critical acclaim, with particular praise for Washington's performance and Lee's direction. However, it also stirred controversy, with some accusing the movie of portraying Malcolm X as a violent extremist. Despite the controversy, "Malcolm X" remains a significant and thought-provoking movie about the life and legacy of one of the most influential leaders of the 20th century.

Undoubtfully, cinematography has been my passion since a very young age. Even now, watching a new movie or series always prompts me to ask a lot of questions to the author. Thus, every little essay about a title is definitely not a spoiler, but rather an attempt to explore the idea.
