MILES AHEAD

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - DC

Di­rected by Don Cheadle. Star­ring Don Cheadle, Ewan McGre­gor “If you’re go­ing to tell a story, then come at it with some at­ti­tude. Don’t be coy with that shit.” So says Miles Davis (Cheadle) to a slip­pery jour­nal­ist (McGre­gor) in this pe­cu­liar bi­o­graph­i­cal sketch. Cheadle doesn’t wholly take the ad­vice on board. His cen­tral per­for­mance is first class – all breathy men­ace – but the tacked-on plot con­cern­ing a miss­ing recordig is of no in­ter­est. En­thu­si­asts will still want to get on board. 15A cert, gen re­lease, 100 min
