Filmaker Spike Lee, actor Denzel Washington and other top talents vividly potray the life and times of Malcom X. "Here's a man who rose up from the dregs of society, spent time in jail, reeducated himself and, through spiritual enlightment, rose to the top," Lee says. For his extraodinary work in the title role, two-time Academy Award winner Washington was an Oscar nominee and the New York, Boston and Chicago Film Critics choice as 1992's Best actor.
