Muta’Ali Muhammad, filmmaker

“‘Just let your Soul Glo!’  Coming to America is a timeless classic.  The best Eddie Murphy movie of all time.  I love the adventurous, fun, and message-filled ridiculousness in the film.  My favorite scenes are: (1) When the barber snips off Eddie’s tail and says, ‘That’ll be eight dollas,” and (2) The Reverend’s pageant scene when the brother puts chicken in the offering plate and (3) when my man [Eddie Murphy as “Randy Watson”] drops the mike and yells “Sexual Chocolate!”  Just saying those lines makes me smile to this day.”

Muta’Ali is finishing production on his latest documentary on his iconic grandparents Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee, Life’s Essentials with Ruby Dee.
