Dir. Raoul Peck (2000). The spirit of Oliver Stone hovers over Raoul Peck's passionate biopic of the African liberation martyr. As cliché-rich as it is compelling, Lumumba hits its stilted stride dashing through the succession of crises that marked its protagonists few months as prime minister. The movie clocks in under two hours, but given the material, it could easily have been twice as long.
