MILES AHEAD, inspired by events in his life, is a wildly entertaining, impressionistic, no-holds barred portrait of one of 20th century music’s creative geniuses, Miles Davis, featuring a career defining performance by Oscar nominee Don Cheadle in the title role.
Roger EbertFull Review Very Good ... there is a quiet brilliance to the film that left me electrified, inspired, challenged like all great films should. It doesn't wholly work, but when it does it sings.
NY PostFull Review Above Average Don Cheadle gives one of the best performances of his career as jazz legend Miles Davis in "Miles Ahead,'' even if his debut as a director ends up being an unfocused disappointment. ...Cheadle makes the new film worth seeing despite its flaws.
Rolling StoneFull Review Above Average You can feel Cheadle's desire to do Davis proud by not doing anything boilerplate. It's a near miss, but you can't help applauding the passion behind it. As an actor, Cheadle is flawless, letting us feel we're really hanging with a musical genius possessed of a volatile temper and a talent to match.
Rex ReedFull Review Poor Don Cheadle trashes the historic career of Miles Davis in Miles Ahead According to the jazz musicians I know, he was unpredictable and borderline crazy, but nothing like the moody, unhinged and dangerous stray bullet depicted here.
