At one point an acquittance describes Miles music as a stone skipping across a pond. Very true. No depth, everything on the surface. Same with Miles himself. He wife Francis was perfect for him. Another image conscious partner who 50 years later is still bragging about what great legs she had as a young woman and how many guys want to "blank" her. If you want a fair assessment of Miles Davis life this doc gives it to you. But if you are a big fan of his music you might consider staying away because the man himself was a lightweight, a drug user, wife beater and in the end a loser. Expand

A very good but VERY long biographical film about Miles Davis, his life and his art. It is more fixated on the minutiae of his life than on his art, but overall it is an interesting and very well-crafted film, if a bit overwhelming.

A great profile of one of the greatest musicians to ever live. Miles Davis changed music forever. Whether you know his music well or know none of it, give this documentary a watch.

"VERY long"? It's only two hours!
"Miles was a superficial artist and person"? I don't know what these two morons here watched but it certainly wasn't this great documentary.
