The directorial debut of acclaimed actor Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda), Miles Ahead is a free-form biopic of undisputed jazz great Miles Davis. Eschewing a traditional structure, Cheadle chooses instead to imaginatively inhabit Davis: giving a brilliant performance, full of attitude, as he explores both the man and the myth. Utilising flashbacks and a loose, improvisatory style (akin to jazz itself) Cheadle effortlessly evokes the period as well as his subject’s proud, neurotic swagger and turbulent life as he recounts his exploits to Rolling Stone reporter Dave Braden (Ewan McGregor).
