Rating of

A Miles Davis biopic that specifically targets one event in his life, while mixing in the occasional flashback to his failed marriage. This format works seamlessly, as the flashbacks work more as on-the-spot memories that flow in and out of the present situation. The two eventually become intertwined in an interesting visual way that calls to mind some subtle tendencies of Michel Gondry. The plot regarding a forceful record company, being replaced by new talent, and reclaiming stolen music recordings is good enough on it's own. But it's the way in which we come to be familiar with the complexity of our subject along the way that makes it more enriching. Cheadle holds everything together with a strong performance and direction.
