"Miles Ahead," an ambitious, experimental biopic about jazz legend Miles Davis, states its mission twice over the course of the movie.The person saying it is Miles Davis, played by Don Cheadle, who also co-wrote and directed.Knowing full well how a tell-it-all approach can be duller than a Wikipedia page, Cheadle eschews the cradle-to-grave approach and focuses in on two moments – a crazy few days in Davis' "Howard Hughes of jazz" phase and much earlier, during the romantic beginnings and fraught endings of his relationship with the dancer Frances Taylor (Emayatzy Corinealdi).Cheadle and Corinealdi's palpable chemistry is an undeniable force here, and is a striking contrast to the occasional awkwardness of many of Cheadle and McGregor's interactions in the present.
