Don Cheadle's Miles Davis biography is a fictionalized look at the jazz great's drugged-out period in the 1970s. "Miles Ahead" depicts the man (whom Cheadle also plays) as a damaged genius. Watching Ewan McGregor's reporter try to interview Davis, I got the feeling that Davis didn't want to be viewed as a celebrity, resulting in his reclusive phase. Moreover, he insisted that people call his music not jazz, but social music.
The movie is worth seeing. I guess that the limited focus and fictionalized story weaken it. The only look at race relations is when a cop turns aggressive after watching Davis escort a white woman to a car. But for the most part, this is a fine piece of work. It looks as though Davis was truly a complex character, even if he did have a not-so-nice side. I'll have to listen to his music to see what I think. After all, when you create your own s**t, not even the sky's the limit.
