Miles Ahead

written, directed by and starring Don Cheadle

 

What has to be the most original, wildly exiting and best made “biopic” or if you prefer, fiction based on a real person is the currently released Miles Ahead - Don Cheadle’s Miles Davis film.

It is easy to compare it positively against similar works like the also good, also running now “Born to be Blue” but in fact Miles Ahead is so good it was the most exiting screening at the very good 2015 New York Film Festival.

Everything about from it how original it is, to how well it was directed to all its performances including Don Cheadle, Emayatzy Corinealdi and Ewan McGregor makes it worth tuning not walking to see.  Currently it is playing in New York and Los Angeles.
