" Denzel stands at the centre of the film, in a performance of enormous breadth." "Washingto n is a congenial, attractive actor." "Malcolm is at Columbia U., where a young white girl tells him her heart is in the right place, and she supports his struggle. ' what can I do to help? nothing,' Malcolm says coldly, and stalks away. Lee sees deeply, and so he ends the scene by showing the hurt on her face." "Every Lee film is an exercise in empathy." " Flaubert wrote that he had disliked reading UNCLE TOM'S CABIN because the author constantly preached against slavery. ' does one have to make observations about slavery? depict it; that is enough. an author must be like god in the universe, present everywhere, and visible nowhere.' " Olivier's famous acceptance speech for winning an honorary Oscar: next day he called Michael Caine, asked him what he thought of the speech. Caine hadn't understood a word. ' Quite so,' said Larry. his mind had gone blank."
