Malcolm X is an almost required choice. You could also take a related road and cover Mo' Better Blues, Washington's first collaboration with Spike Lee. I'm going to campaign hard for Devil in a Blue Dress; it's a noir set in the '40s with a black lead and director, a perspective that the racism of the original noir era excluded. Training Day is another one on the required list, as it's the film he won his Oscar for. A revenge film like Man on Fire or The Equalizer, or a later acclaimed performance film like Flight, could also occupy the last slot.
I caught up on the second half of the season today, and think it's a step up from the first half: the Flash/Kid Flash team-ups are the most fun the show's been in awhile, the sweet side of Barry and Iris' relationship works, Gypsy was a villain of the week played by someone with actual charisma, the writers are making an effort to build up a Caitlin/Julian relationship as opposed to when they slapped Caitlin and "Jay" together, and the team trying to alter the events on the way to Iris' death is at least a twist on the tired time travel. The lying and "I'll have a talk with him" are still at critical mass, and despite a moment or two HR is still completely unnecessary, but there is an uptick in quality compared to where the show's been.
