Miles Ahead

If you gonna tell a story, come with some attitude


Miles Ahead
Set back in the 1970s, this biopic about the famouse jazz musician Mile Davis takes a look at his five dark years. Alone and holed up in his home, he is beset by chronic pain from a deteriorating hip, his musical voice stifled and numbed by drugs and pain medications, his mind haunted by unsettling ghosts from the past.

Tomatometer quote iconMiles Ahead is worth watching for Don Cheadle&rquot;s strong work on both sides of the camera, even if this unconventional biopic doesn&rquot;t quite capture its subject&rquot;s timeless appeal.
