Dog’s Movie House: “One Night In Miami” Riveting “What If” Moviemaking!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog with a look at “One Night In Miami,” one of the best films of the year and a riveting debut from charismatic actress Regina King! Based partially on the historic meeting of four titans of the civil rights movement in 1964, “One Night In Miami” fictionalizes what could have happened and what might have been said when Malcom X, Cassius Clay, Jim Brown, and Sam Cooke got together at a Miami Hotel for a post-fight celebration after Clay put a beating on then champion Sonny Liston. What follows is a quartet of searing performances and insightful dialogue that make this one of the best films of the young year so far!
