Miles Ahead...The best film I've seen this year...
7 April 2004 | by (NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

If you've seen this film and you said that you don't like it, it obviously means that you have a short attention span or have ADD. I just saw this film at the San Jose Film Fest (cinequest) during spring break and it was not only the best film that I saw there, but it is the best piece of storying telling rapture that I have seen in a long time. Major props too Matt Zbotovski,Dylan Trivette and their crew on this film. If you like a well developed, well told cinematic experience, this film is for you. I highly recommend this film to any aspiring filmmaker who wants a lesson in how to achieve Cinematic Catharsis.

Also, maybe the reason you didn't like this film was because there weren't any homosexuals in it and because the story didn't revolve round some kid coming to grips with his alternative sexual orientation...That aside, Miles Ahead is a winner, Hands Down...
