Reel Talk - Miles Ahead

Synopsis: In the 1970s, jazz trumpeter Miles Davis tries to recover his new session tape from music producers.

Review: On one hand, Miles Ahead proves to be a fairly entertaining "movie" lead by Don Cheadle's well played rendition of the enigmatic genius and a formidable debut as  director. And though it has been labeled as an unorthodox biography, more focus on the "genius" of Miles as oppose to his idiosyncrasies, as well as the fictitious heist narrative, would have better served both enthusiasts of the legend as well as those eager to learn more about his contributions and achievements in the world of Jazz.
