Fighting … together?
I have to admit, while individually I knew things about both those icons, I was not too aware on their shared (his)story. So while others, you(?), may already be in an advantage considering the focus of this documentary, I don’t think it was bad not knowing much. I had quite a few moments during the movie, that felt … well a lot of feelings actually that I went through. And I reckon the same will be true for you.
Sometimes you wonder, why or how some people who are/were meant to be together, help each other out, have issues with each other. So this is not just some good feel thing you are about to watch. A lot of animosity, a lot of other things will come forth. Again, you may be aware of many of them (or most of them), but it is really well told and edited. It makes sense for those not too aware of circumstances … like myself.
A Sad Tale About What Religious Fervor Can Do To Spoil A Wonderful Brotherhood
Just from watching this documentary and reading the reviews of the same. No I did not find it boring at all. If anything, as an ardent student of history and a reader of the Autobiography of Malcolm X and his many works, this documentary brings to light an aspect I never knew about Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali and how they separated.
Watching Muhammad Ali turn his back on Malcolm X was very sad. And further realizing just how powerful cults like the Nation of Islam and their founder can be on individuals to completely sever such a wonderful bond is always heartbreaking.
In spite of the fact that Muhammad Ali did indeed through the words of his daughter and that of X’s daughter admit regret, it still leaves a great sense of sorrow that it had to take the demise of THEM (The Honorable Elijah Muhammad) for him to awaken from the spell… too little too late.
Overall, I found this very informative and gets a 10 from me.
