Malcolm X (1992)

 Rated R, ladies and sirs.

The fierce biopic of the “by any means necessary” guy is the subject of our 83rd Next 100 Project ‘cast. Denzel Washington—who’s always good—has never been better and Spike Lee spilled his guts to make this epic. It remains a powerful account of an ever-evolving ’60s revolutionary, the punk who became a prophet. Our dog Sam chose to snore through the entire podcast, but you won’t!
