Critic Reviews for Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool
A well-made account of both the man's achievements and his jerkiness.
The result, for the most part, is pleasant and informative, if not particularly inspiring or revelatory. But now and then, the music and images can't help but break through.
The film is kind of brilliant in the way it covers and contextualizes more than 50 years of groundbreaking music in barely two hours.
It's a film that Miles himself would recognize - truthful, gritty, elegantly musical, unpredictable and even surprising - the kind of complex yet elegiac tribute a man as relentlessly real as Miles Davis deserves.
A gossipy and very musical primer on Davis, who is, needless to say (though it is said and said), among the giants of jazz.
