FilmGordon Radio | Malcolm X Turns 30 (Episode 514)

by Tim Gordon

This week on the BIG show, long before the crossed arms signaling an X was synonymous with Wakanda, it was three decades ago this week that we witnessed arguably the greatest performance from Denzel Washington in Spike Lee’s magnum opus, Malcolm X.

We’ll discuss this classic and how it changed the trajectory of its many cast members and the legacy of its famed director.

Plus, legendary auteur Matin Scorsese turns 80 and we’ll name our Top Five Films from his distinguished canon, as well as discuss Dave Chappelle’s return to SNL. And we’ll review The Menu, The Wonder, and Is that Black Enough for You.

We’ll have all that and more on Episode 514 of Keeping It Reel with FilmGordon.
