Spike Lee and Denzel Washington on the set of “Malcom X (1992).” The movie was directed by Spike Lee. When I found out that Spike Lee was directing this movie, I was a little apprehensive about seeing this movie at first. But when I finally saw it, I thought he did a phenomenal job. I highly recommend it! I normally don’t like watching movies that are 3+ hours long, because there aren’t that many movies that are worth watching for that long (unless it’s a “Lord Of The Ring” type flick). By the way, I absolutely love Zoot Suits!! I wish we could go back to those days. Although there is a negative history tied to them, they look soo cool!! LOL.
