Slain civil-rights leader Malcolm X is strikingly immortalised in Spike Lee’s panoramic biopic, tracing his remarkable transformation from incarcerated juvenile felon to globally-renowned religious statesman. Denzel Washington delivers an electrifying performance as the charismatic and controversial minister, while co-star Angela Bassett brings understated, stoic elegance to her portrayal of his devoted wife, Dr Betty Shabazz.
