Be wrong strong

I am a fan of the music, but never knew much of his life which is told as a flashback which divided itself into two parts: the missing years and a flashback to when he was on top of his game. We see his fall due his marriage emulating that of Ike and Tina Turner. Miles was a big boxing fan with a hip disease and love of cocaine. The flashbacks were easy to follow, we have the later " "fro" period preceded by a more clean cut period. The viewer needs to catch on fast because it flashes back and forth at irregular intervals, sometimes just a matter of seconds as we watch him attempt to steal his music back for much of the film.

The film was less of a biopic and one designed to capture the essence of Davis, his hectic unorganized life juxtaposed by his overly organized music. That it did, although I wish they had more of his music.

Guide: F-word, sex, and nudity.

Fun Hallucinatory Biopic

Don Cheadle Directs Himself as Miles Davis, Nice Job on what If I remember correctly is his directorial debut. The film ping-pongs back and forth from the early 80's, right before Miles comes back from a 5 year or so hiatus to the 50's/60's era when he was married to dancer Frances Taylor.

The film has a madcap side to it with Ewan Mcgregor in a fun turn as a Rolling Stone reporter out to interview Miles and almost doubling as Miles' sidekick in a romp through the city (New York?) in the early 80's.

I don't want to give much away but I recommend the film, it is pretty amusing and jazz + biopic fans will find much to enjoy!

Listen to a Miles Davis album rather than watch this dross

Dreadful movie with a very thin plot.

Miles Davis is deserving of a more full and compelling biopic of his life rather than a movie stretched out from a fairly uneventful period of his public life, plus a bit of artistic license including the reporter character.

Don Cheadle pulls off a reasonable portrayal of Miles, whereas Ewan McGregor doesn't really add anything to the movie. The one saving grace is Emayatzy Corinealdi with a touching performance as Frances Taylor, and... of course... Miles' music.

Wish I'd put on one of his albums instead and read a book!
