MILES AHEAD tells of two fictional days in the life of the grandmasterof Jazz, Miles Davis. “Our attempt with this movie was to try to externalize an internal process. It’s inherently non-dramatic.” In one particularly effective moment, set during recording sessions for Porgy and Bess, Davis sits with the arranger Gil Evans and works out some changes to the score. “That’s one ofpeople’s favorite scenes. That’s just cool because that scene was improvised. There’s just a line in the script that says, Miles works on ‘Gone’. I said I wanted musicians, not actors. When you’re looking at the movie, you feel the authenticity there.” (Don Cheadle talks to David A. Graham)
