A criminally unappreciated film at the time of it's release (only two Oscar nominations, seriously?) and still today. Incredibly powerful film that stands both as a perfect biopic and a remarkable message of understanding.
Also this film is proof the Academy is completely inept in what they are doing. How Denzel didn't win for this layered smart performance but did win for his ludicrously showy role in Training Day shows how idiotic they are in judging acting talent.
Tbh, Denzel should have won for this.
