Don Cheadle's film, Miles Ahead will be opening in New York and Los Angeles on April 1st and opening nationwide on April 22nd. I'm super excited about this. I was at the film's premier at New York Film Fest 53 in October. Let me be the first to tell you that it's definitely worth going to see. I'm somewhat biased because I'm in the movie but I'd say the same thing if I wasn't.
As a huge fan of Miles Davis, I think Don Cheadle did an outstanding job of capturing his character, distinct voice, mannerisms and spirit. There was also an excellent approach to representing the music from each of Miles' creative periods. Miles Ahead is an awesome work of art that further solidifies Miles Davis' place in history and illustrates his lasting impact on the present generation of musicians. Below is a video of Cheadle speaking in depth about the movie during an interview at Sundance Film Festival. Please take a look.
