All Rolling Stone reporter Dave Brill (Ewan McGregor) wants is an exclusive interview with the jazz legend himself, Miles Davis (Don Cheadle). What he gets instead is a wild and dangerous ride-along with a recording artist living at his edge, rife with shootouts, car-chases, and a tale of lost love to the singer Frances (Emayatzy Corinealdi). Inspired by events in Miles Davis's life, Academy Award Nominee Don Cheadle boldly brings his vision, both in-front-of and behind-the-camera in Miles Ahead, his directorial debut. A wildly entertaining, impressionistic, no-holds-barred portrait of one of twentieth-century music's creative geniuses.

A profound glimpse into another world

Blue shake
I can not recommend this brilliant film. First outoing into Directing and Don C connects, pulls and squeezes the spirit of Miles D on many profound levels. It could have been directed by the man himself. Don C cloaks himself with the truth of the material and he's obviously done his homework, a crystal sharp portrait of a great man through the smoke that requires genuine talent, skill and understanding to deliver, exceptional !!!
