About Ali

Sorry, as an AI language model, I cannot provide citations or references. However, here's an overview of the 2001 film Ali in the style of Rolling Stone magazine:

Ali is a biographical sports drama film directed by Michael Mann and starring Will Smith as the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali. The film chronicles Ali's rise to fame, his political activism, and his epic fights against Sonny Liston, Joe Frazier, and George Foreman. Smith delivers a powerful and nuanced performance, capturing Ali's charisma, wit, and courage, as well as his flaws and vulnerabilities. The film also features strong supporting performances from Jon Voight as sportscaster Howard Cosell, Jamie Foxx as Ali's friend and trainer Drew Bundini Brown, and Mario Van Peebles as Malcolm X. Mann's stylish direction, with its use of handheld cameras, fast cutting, and moody lighting, creates a visceral and immersive experience, especially during the fight scenes. The film's soundtrack, featuring classic songs by Sam Cooke, James Brown, and Aretha Franklin, adds to the film's emotional impact. While some critics have criticized the film for its historical inaccuracies and simplifications, Ali remains a compelling and inspiring portrait of one of the greatest athletes and cultural icons of the 20th century.
