The Bigger Picture film club will be showing ‘Miles Ahead’ (2015) at 8pm on Thursday, 27 September 2018, at the Ivy House.
This story of a ‘metaphorical’ meeting in 1979 between legendary jazz musician Miles Davis (Don Cheadle) and Rolling Stone’s fictional Dave Bradon (Ewan McGregor) is set at the moment when Davis’ career appears eclipsed. The story purports to tell of a frenzied search for a missing tape of Davis’ newest numbers (after 5 musically arid years), but is an excuse to review his personal and musical story. The narrative arc is as eclectic as a jazz solo, weaving back on itself. The story is somewhat chaotic, but the music is amazing.
Director: Don Cheadle
Running time: 100 minutes.
We say: This may seem like a weird caper movie (the sort that Davis might have liked to be in himself), but the man and his music transcend that. A soundtrack to die for!
Film at 8pm.
