Daniel Scheinert, one of the directors behind 2022 hit Everything Everywhere All at Once, has been criticised for labeling Spike Lee's Malcolm X a "crime movie". This has caused an uproar on Twitter.

In the film, Malcolm X is a civil rights activist who battles injustice and police brutality. While the first third of the film does focus on criminality, many fans feel it's inaccurate to label it a crime saga.

It's a crime saga

Daniel Scheinert, one half of the filmmaking duo known as the Daniels (together with Daniel Kwan), has faced some backlash after labeling 'Malcolm X' a "crime saga". This 1992 Spike Lee biopic chronicled Malcolm X's life from childhood until his assassination in 1965.

Some fans were shocked by Scheinert's remarks, yet others stood behind her decision, citing Martin Scorsese's 1990 crime epic Goodfellas for inspiration. Additionally, they pointed out that the first 1/3 of the film focuses on criminal aspects in Sage's early life.

These remarks were made during an episode of Criterion Collection's web series 'Closet Picks,' where celebrities are invited to select DVDs and Blu-Rays from a room full of them before explaining their choices to the camera. The response to these remarks has sparked outrage on social media platforms.

Director Spike Lee has appealed to Twitter users to be kind when Daniel Scheinert refers to his film as a "crime saga". He also encouraged them to "be wiser" and learn from their errors. Such an appeal for mercy comes at a crucial time in the film industry, when many call for greater accountability and reform. Despite these errors, 'Malcolm X' remains an entertaining biopic that deserves your time and attention.

It's a musical

Director Daniel Scheinert has come under fire for labeling Spike Lee's 1992 film Malcolm X a "crime movie."

This film chronicles the life of civil rights activist and black leader Malcolm X, from his childhood to his assassination in 1965. It serves as a tribute to all members of the black community and their struggle for liberation.

In recent history, people have often labeled black leaders and activists as criminals. This label is especially applied when they are involved in acts of genocide such as Malcolm X's assassination in 1965.

Closet Picks, a web series produced by The Criterion Collection, sees celebrities invited into a room filled with DVDs and Blu Rays and then asked to pick one. It's an entertaining, often hilarious series.

On the latest episode of Entertainment Tonight, two directors from 2022 hit Everything Everywhere All at Once (one half being Daniel Kwan) participated in a segment to select their favourite art house movies. As you might expect, their choices are as eclectic and varied as their palates!

They even included a clip from the film that parodies "The Matrix": Swiss Army Man, in which Paul Dano stars as a suicidal castaway who befriends an undead corpse named Manny.

Despite its absurdities, the film manages to be both touching and thoroughly entertaining. The actors' performances are superb, and the script has been expertly written.

If you're a fan of musicals, then this film is a must-see. Not only are the music and lyrics excellent, but so too is the direction. Unlike many other adapted musicals, this adaptation maintains its mischievous humor and unique oddball sensibility from the book.

The film also stars Australian comedian Tim Minchin as its voiceover. His presence adds a unique layer to the cast and his lyrics help make the movie even more unforgettable.

In addition to their theatrical skills, both directors have backgrounds in visual effects and improv comedy. This makes them a fascinating team to observe as they combine their abilities in creative yet edgy ways.

It's a documentary

Daniel Scheinert, co-director of Everything Everywhere All at Once, has come under fire on social media for labeling Spike Lee's film Malcolm X a "crime movie". This statement sparked widespread outrage on the web.

Though some defended the statement, others weren't so sure. Some even took to Twitter to express their displeasure with it.

This film follows a basketball coach as they are given court approval to manage a team of players with intellectual disabilities. As they battle through their doubts, they soon discover that together they can achieve more than they ever imagined possible.

He also finds himself engaging in the fight against prejudice and discrimination. As he becomes more deeply involved with the team's activities, he develops an unwavering commitment to their cause.

However, he is ultimately forced to leave his job and return home to Omaha. There, he must confront both his childhood fears and the ghosts of his past.

Throughout the film, he is confronted with racism and violence. But he also recalls the values he was raised with: self-determination and racial pride.

But that doesn't stop him from following his dreams. He works tirelessly to improve conditions for his family and community, yet is also driven by a need for justice.

Recently, Spike Lee expressed his wish for Twitter to quiet down after director Daniel Scheinert labeled his film Malcolm X a "crime saga". He described these remarks as "insane" and "passive racist," noting that he didn't intend for anyone to be upset over what he considered the most important part of the story - the assassination of civil rights activist Malcolm X (Denzel Washington) - to become too distracted.

It's a good movie

Spike Lee always tells a good story, and Malcom X follows suit. The film chronicles the life of civil rights activist Malcolm X from its inception to his assassination in 1965.

This film is a crime saga, musical, and documentary all in one. However, it's the first act which truly shines.

Beyond being the first time a director has referred to a movie as a "crime saga" (Spike modeled and stylised Malcolm X on Martin Scorsese's 1990 crime epic, Goodfellas), it also showcases some of the most impressive special effects to date.

Unfortunately, the first 1/3 of it felt a bit plodding and its conclusion wasn't quite up to par with other finalists.

Unfortunately, half of Daniel Scheinert's credits aren't on this film because he and co-director Daniel Kwan deserve better than to be compared with sloppy directors who can't get their act together. Their 2022 hit Everything Everywhere All at Once is an impressive piece of artwork, showcasing their abilities as a team that communicates clearly and confidently. We look forward to seeing more from them in the future.
