Don Cheadle directs and stars as Miles Davis in this biopic about the influential jazz musician. The film begins in the late 1970s during a dark and troubled time of Davis's life in which, after giving up performing, he mostly lived as a recluse in his Upper West Side apartment in New York. When insistent reporter Dave Brill (Ewan McGregor) from Rolling Stone magazine knocks on his door seeking an interview, Davis grants him his request and takes him on a mission to recover a new session tape from his label bosses at Columbia Records. During their quest, Davis reminisces over significant events from his life including his relationship with his first wife Frances Taylor (Emayatzy Corinealdi) and the higher points of his musical career.

Don Cheadle has Miles down to a tee & the biographical scenes are well executed, but the problem I have with the film, is the made-up sections are spliced together with the parts that deal with Davis abusing his then wife Frances Taylor.
If there had already been a tradition Davis bio, then I think “Miles Beyond” would have been more acceptable, but it just feels like a lost opportunity to introduce Miles’ music to a new generation.
Die schauspielerischen Leistungen der Protagonisten sind exzellent - keine Frage.
Der Film hat eine tolle Kulisse (das "funky" Amerika der 70er), witzige u. humorvolle Szenen, natürlich geniale Musik und selbst die Action kommt nicht zu kurz. Im Vergleich mit "Born To Be Blue" (Chet Baker Story) ist er meiner Meinung nach aber nicht unbedingt besser - etwas hat mir gefehlt, um hier 5 Sterne vergeben zu können. Trotzdem - ich empfehle den Film und "Born To Be Blue" Musik- und Jazzfans. Ob Nicht-Musik/Jazz interessierte ihre Freude daran haben würden, mag ich zu bezweifeln.
