In Miles Ahead we find Don Cheadle as an artist with a vision and, much like Miles’ undying compositions, it is erratic, chaotic and utterly absorbing. Pouring all life into this performance, Cheadle soars in front of the camera. Behind it too. It's a passion project and we feel it in every frame... the riffs, the pulse, the vibrations... we feel Miles Davis and everything he represented.
Much better than you might imagine. Cheadle's energy and passion are radiant and his portrayal of Miles Davis is rooted in an intense understanding of every facet of Miles' persona (most importantly, the sense of mystery he worked hard to curate). It all goes together like sex, drugs, and jazz. Bellissimo.
