I can't say this is a particularly good movie. It is simply a really great documentary. It's not particularly a biography, but rather a look at one of the most important figures in the history of music. It is truly a life in music and music history. And it's also a look at one of the great rock 'n roll stars, Miles Davis. There are several documentaries about the life of Bob Dylan, not necessarily the great singer himself. But they all have a bit of a musical flavor to them. But Miles Davis? This is one of the best. This is a very, very good documentary. Not a great movie, but not a bad one either. I give it a B+.

I saw this at the Sundance Film Festival and I was pleasantly surprised. While it is not a documentary, the filmmakers do give you enough information to make you understand the concept of the music that Miles Davis and company were creating. The interviewees are all brilliant musicians and they all provide excellent insight into the life of the man. They have some amazing stories to tell about his childhood and his early music career. It's great to see how Davis became the legend that he was, but it is also great to hear how the music has affected his life and what it has done to his family. I really liked this documentary and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has ever wanted to know what it was like to be a jazz musician or just like the music. It is also a must-see for any fans of Miles Davis.

Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool is a documentary that tells the story of the legendary musician, Miles Davis. It begins in the 1950s, when Miles Davis was a struggling singer and guitarist who was writing songs with friends. At the same time, the hippie movement was starting to grow and he began to notice the influence of music and the culture of the time. During the early 1960s, he began to develop a relationship with a young woman named Vivian Leigh. At this point, he started writing more songs and became a successful artist. The movie goes into a lot of detail about his life, from his childhood to his early years in Los Angeles to his experiences with his family and friends. It also explores his rise and fall in popularity, and how he's influenced by other artists like Elvis Presley and Stevie Wonder. It's a fascinating look at one of America's greatest musical figures, and it's very interesting and engaging.

I was very impressed by this documentary. The passion and enthusiasm that Davis had for the music and dance was very evident in this film. I also found that the film did a great job of showing the backstage life of Miles Davis. It did a good job of explaining the context of his work and how he was influenced by other artists. It also showed the impact that his work had on his friends and contemporaries. I felt that the film also covered the effects that his career had on his family, especially his son, who was somewhat estranged from his father for the rest of his life. Overall, I really liked this film. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the life and work of Miles Davis. It also showed the important impact that his work had on the music industry and on his friends and colleagues.

This is a film about Miles Davis and how his career developed. It's a very well done documentary, but it's not the best documentary about Davis. I found it a little boring and I didn't really feel like I was really seeing the man. It was the best documentary about him I've ever seen. It was also very well done. I really like the way that they had Davis playing "Crazy" and the way they had him playing "Crazy" in the documentary. They showed the reaction of people who knew him. I think it's great that they did that. They showed him being very very young. It was very well done. I also liked how they talked about his guitar playing and how he got his name. It was interesting to hear about his guitar playing. I also liked the way that they showed the songs that he played and the way they talked about them. I think that they did a very good job of showing how he got his name. I think that it was a good documentary. I think it was a very good documentary.

I enjoyed this documentary, as I do with all Davis films. I am a big fan of his music, and I've never understood why the critics and the fans hated him so much. They must have been so confused, because I felt that Davis was nothing but an actor, who was great at what he did. But it's not just Davis that makes this film interesting. It's also a very entertaining documentary about the life and times of Miles Davis. It's very funny, and it also contains some very touching and emotional moments, especially when Miles' daughter was about to die. There's also some great music footage, and the music is great, too. It's just an excellent film.

The late great Miles Davis was a complex figure who was both artist and journalist. He is perhaps the most important musician to have emerged from the early 1950s onwards. He was an icon of the counterculture, a world traveler who had the ability to sell out to make a quick buck. His music and his message were both fascinating. As the first of his many biopics, this is a fascinating and entertaining look at the man, his music and his legacy. The film's narrative is very much in the spirit of that of his "Formation" album. The film is as much about Davis as it is about jazz. He is not just a jazz musician, he is also an artist, an innovator and a humanitarian. He is a key figure in the development of jazz in America and the world. The film has its share of controversy, as some of his music is now considered sacrilegious. Nevertheless, the film is very engaging, and is well worth seeing.

The late great Miles Davis is interviewed for this feature film from 1971. I am not sure why he was interviewed, but it was definitely a nice tribute to the great musician. The interviews are great, and they are mostly insightful. The film is also nice to look at, and the various covers and renditions of Miles' music are great. The film has some great musical numbers, and is worth watching. 7/10

Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool is a documentary that takes a look at the life and times of Miles Davis. It's a bit of a different angle on Davis' life. It's not the biopic that I was expecting, but I did like it. The documentary covers a lot of information about Davis' life and career, and it covers some of the different music he did. There are some good interviews with people who worked with him, and there is a good amount of information about his personal life. I think the biggest thing I liked about this documentary was the interview with Ralph Gleason, who is also a great musician. He talks about the problems that he had working with Davis, and also talks about how he influenced Davis' music. This documentary is pretty good, and I recommend it.

I don't really get why this film got a 7.5, I was really expecting a bit more of a film. But this is a movie to watch once, and I don't regret that one second. The film was really informative and I really think that they did a good job of it. It was also funny and entertaining. This is a film that I recommend to everyone. I am a big fan of Miles Davis and this film gave me a lot to think about.

While I enjoyed this film immensely, I must admit that the cast and crew of the film are all pretty much the most eccentric and eccentric people I've ever met. The filmmaker himself even admits that he has a soft spot for David Bowie and has made an attempt to get him to come on stage. And that's probably the most strange thing about this film. I really wanted to like this film. I really did. I've been a fan of Miles Davis for many years, and have been very interested in his music ever since. I'm not a Bowie fan, and even if I had never heard of Bowie, I would still be interested in the music. I like the music, and I like the man himself. But I just didn't see the point of this film. I saw it as the filmmaker's attempt to create a doc about the man himself, and to get him to come on stage. The film is very well shot, and shows the director's talent. But there are too many scenes where the music seems to be the main focus, and not enough scenes where it's the director's aim to get the musician on stage. It just seems like the director wants to get the musician on stage, and the music is just a bonus. I'm sorry, but this is just not a very interesting film. But maybe that's the point. I don't know. I'm not saying that this is the worst film ever made, or that it's a waste of time, but I don't see how I can recommend it to anybody.

This documentary looks at the evolution of Miles Davis's career and his relationship with his wife, Iman, who had to raise their two children. It's quite interesting, and the interviews with people who knew Davis well give an insight into his personal life. The subject matter is fascinating, and I recommend this documentary.

Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool is a documentary that takes a look at the life of the famed jazz pianist Miles Davis. The film opens with footage from the funeral of Davis's mother, which shows Davis sitting at a piano with a young boy who was a child when he died. Davis, who had just finished a string of recordings that made him a superstar, gave the boy a copy of his latest work, a song titled "Blue Hawaii," and the boy loved it. The next day, Davis met the boy's mother and the two began a friendship that has lasted through the years. Davis even began writing songs for the boy, and his song "Blue Hawaii" became a hit. However, a car accident put Davis in a coma for the rest of his life. In the film, director Kip Thorne examines Davis's life, and the struggles he went through to make his name. He talks to a number of people about the difficulties Davis faced, including his mother, his manager, and his publisher. There are many moments in the film that were touching, and most of them are even more poignant when you see the film. This film is not for the squeamish. The music is great, and the film is informative and entertaining. It's a good documentary, and it should be a great film for Davis's fans.

Miles Davis' Birth of the Cool is a biography of the legendary jazz singer, jazz musician, and composer. Born Miles Davis in 1914, the son of a blacksmith, Miles Davis grew up in a working-class area of San Francisco. He began playing the piano at age twelve and as a teenager joined the American Ballet Theater. He went on to be the first African American to sing in a major musical. He also was the first jazz artist to perform in a film, The Jazz Singer. This film tells his life and the people who shaped him. It also tells how he went on to become a jazz icon. As a musician, Davis was able to create a sound that was completely unique to him. As a singer, he was able to convey his feelings in the way that he did. As a person, he was a wonderful man who had the ability to express love, kindness, and confidence in a way that most people could not. He had a gift of inspiring people and making them feel that they had a purpose in life. The film is a must see for anyone who has a love for jazz. The people who have lived through the movie have a lot to say about Miles Davis and what they remember of him. There are some touching anecdotes from the people who knew him and his music. The film also provides a great overview of jazz history. The film also does a great job of telling the story of jazz in general and the influence of jazz on music. The music that Davis created and the music that he brought to the people of the world is a topic that people should know about. The film is well worth seeing.

Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool (2003) * (out of 4) Director Tim Burton takes us on a journey through the life of legendary jazz musician Miles Davis. Burton begins with Davis' life as a child, then moves into his early life as an adult and his career in music. We then move on to the 1960's where Davis was a man with a lot of success. After that, he goes on to a career in film. The director then takes us through the career of his father, Miles' mother, and finally his father. We then move on to his early life and his relationship with his mother. After that, we move on to his later years and his relationship with his daughter. This film was certainly a big departure from his usual films and I certainly had my doubts about this film. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. This film is certainly a film for those who are fans of Miles Davis and the music he was a part of. The director really shows us how great a musician he was and what he accomplished. He also shows us how much Davis loved his daughter. Burton does a great job with this film. There are many things that are shown in the film that really help tell the story of Davis and his music. I am sure that many fans of Davis will enjoy this film. I would recommend this film to anyone who is a fan of the music and the man that he was.

Miles Davis is the author of the great blues and jazz albums, such as "Heartbreak Hotel," "Wichita Lineman," and "My Favorite Things." He also wrote the original music for "Blueberry Hill," and in the 1970s, he became a major figure in the black music scene. When he died at the age of 73, his music and his life were celebrated in an incredible documentary, "Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool." Director David Shire's documentary tells the story of Davis' rise to stardom, his decline and death, and the many artists who have benefited from his influence. The documentary takes a thorough look at the music, the music industry, the culture, and Davis' own life. Some of the topics that the filmmakers address include: the politics of jazz and blues in the 1950s, the music industry, the influence of jazz and blues on the music industry, the music industry in general, and the music industry in general. In addition, the filmmakers cover his early life, his struggles with addiction, his relationship with his wife, and his relationship with his two sons. I'm very impressed with the fact that this film has a great musical score and that it is presented in a documentary style. The documentary really is one of the best documentaries I've seen. It is well-done, and is well worth watching. It is definitely a great documentary, and I would recommend it to anyone.

One of the most influential music/songs of all time, Miles Davis was an immensely gifted musician who didn't have the opportunity to fully appreciate his musical gifts until after his death. The story of how he got his music is fascinating and I'm sure it will bring a smile to most viewers. I think the most amazing thing about this film is how well it brings to life the man who was most often not recognized for his music. He was a very private man who would rarely share his personal thoughts and ideas with anyone. I think this documentary will be very important in bringing the public to appreciate and appreciate his music. He was a real artist who was loved and admired by millions. He was one of the best performers I have ever heard. He had a very unique style of music that is still considered classic. He was a musical genius and is remembered for his music and his musical style.

The movie "Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool" is not as important as it should be. It is not a good movie, but it is not bad either. This is the third film in the series and it is very similar to the first two. The movie has an easy narrative, but there is no real emotional content. The movie is really about the music and the music is very good. The movie has a good plot, but it is not interesting either. There is a very good performance by Miles Davis, but the movie does not really show his greatness. The movie is very depressing and the music is really depressing. If you are a fan of Miles Davis, you should not miss this movie. It is a good film, but it is not the best of his works.

This documentary tells the story of Miles Davis, his music, and his time in Hollywood. It is very interesting to see Davis speak about the making of this film, his work with Harry Nilsson, and his time in the studio. It is also interesting to see how the studio took advantage of the singer, and it is clear that studio technology has evolved greatly in the last 30 years. I would have liked to see more of the studio and Davis' personal life. I would have also liked to see more footage from the Davis' early years. The acting was good, but the documentary is very well-made, and I would recommend it to fans of Miles Davis.
