Personal Quote:

[on the supposed factual inaccuracies of The Hurricane (1999)] - I heard that. We'll never know, will we? The film was touchy because people were murdered and a lot of people felt that Rubin did it. So you're opening old wounds. Malcolm X (1992) was more dangerous, but The Hurricane (1999) might have been more controversial. See more »
