Worthwhile period piece
9 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

This 1970 documentary was filmed while Muhammad Ali's future in the ring was still uncertain. The film posits a possible future for Ali as a Black revolutionary, and there's plenty of evidence presented to support that possibility. Of course, things didn't turn out that way, and Ali resumed his ring career. Surprisingly sympathetic, this film is a valuable artefact that deserves renewed attention in this post-Will Smith period of Ali's life.
