This is a wonderful movie. It is very moving and a great documentary. It is not only a look at Miles Davis, but it is a look at how the music he made in the 50's and 60's changed the world and the music industry in general. It is a great look at how the music business has changed and how much of the music business is now done by computers and big studios. The music is just as important as the films. The film is about Miles Davis and how he changed the music industry. The film is very well done and the music is just as important as the film. I highly recommend this film.

This documentary is a must see for everyone who has a passion for Miles Davis. The filmmaker, Andy Warhol, had a great grasp of what it was like to be a young Miles Davis fan and the cameraman, John Schlesinger, has a great deal of experience as a reporter and producer. The two of them created a documentary that is very revealing and entertaining. Miles Davis is at the top of his game and the film will help you understand why he is such an influential and important figure in music history. The documentary is extremely informative and entertaining and will leave you with a lot of questions and questions you will want to ask. The interviewees are great, but the best is Jeff Koons, the director of the film. He is very knowledgeable and is able to answer questions with great clarity and insight. There are a few inaccuracies in the film, but overall it is a great documentary. If you like Miles Davis and want to know more about him, you must see this documentary.

Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool is an incredibly fascinating documentary about one of the most influential and influential musicians of all time. The film is shot with the utmost care and precision and you truly feel as if you're part of the Davis family, as if you've known Miles Davis since the day he was born. The film tells the story of Miles from his childhood to his early years, from his childhood in the ghetto to his life in New York City. The film is very informative and shows a lot of interesting facts about the man, such as how he wrote his original songs, how he wrote his first hits, how he got famous, how he changed his name, and many other important things. The film is also very well made, as the director has always tried to keep the camera in close and keep the focus on the people involved. This is an incredibly insightful film and it shows the history of the man and his music. This is a great documentary for anyone interested in the music, or just in the man himself.

I was very impressed with this movie, and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of great information that Miles Davis gave in this DVD. It was definitely a great tribute to one of the greatest musicians in history. I am not sure how many people have heard of him, but he is probably the most important musician of our time. The reason why he is so famous is because he was one of the greatest musicians in history, and he never did anything that he didn't like. It is a shame that he died, because he had such a great life. I think the documentary could have done a better job with showing more of his music, and less of his private life. I am not sure how much of his music we have heard, but it would have been great to hear some of his music. If you are a music fan, you will definitely like this movie, because it tells a lot of stories about Miles Davis, his music, and the people around him. I think the DVD is worth it, and it is worth seeing.

I really enjoyed this film. It was very interesting, and the fact that it was filmed in a very intimate setting was a nice touch. I have seen some of the music videos, and the amount of effort that was put into making the music videos was amazing. The director has really captured the energy of the music videos. I have to agree with the comment that the music videos were great, but the documentary was much more interesting. I would have liked to have seen a little more of the musicians, especially the music videos. I would have liked to have seen more of the music videos. The film was very informative and informative on the music videos, and it was a great time at the theater. I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in music videos.

A must see for all Davis fans! Davis is shown in a candid and amusing way, but is still a great musician. The documentary has some great music, some great quotes and even some great performances. This is a great companion piece to the film "The Great American Songbook"

This is the best documentary about the life of Miles Davis. It is not a documentary about his music but about his life and his relationship with his family. It is a very touching story about a man who was not only a brilliant musician but a great human being. I was extremely impressed by the work of the people who worked on this documentary. It was not an easy film to make and I'm glad it was made because I think it would not have been possible without the dedication and passion of the people who made this film. The documentary has some technical problems, such as the way the footage is shot, but the story is beautiful and worth watching. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in Miles Davis.

I have been listening to Miles Davis' recordings for many years and after watching this film I was in awe of the man. The music and the way the music was recorded was fantastic and so was the way he played the guitar. There was a lot of good music in the film, and I will be buying the soundtrack, and I would love to see more of his recordings. I hope that there will be a new release of his music on vinyl, and I will be looking out for his music and his music will be in all of the music videos that are coming out. This is a great documentary, and a must see for anyone who likes Miles Davis.

Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool is a superb documentary that explores the life of a legendary jazz pianist, musician, and poet, Miles Davis. The film follows the life of Davis from his childhood in rural Mississippi to his rise to fame in the 1950s and his endearing, but ultimately tragic death in 1967. It is fascinating to see Davis struggle with the allure of the big city while also dealing with his own family issues and struggles. The film also focuses on Davis' musical talents and how he formed his own unique style and style of music. The film is a great look into the life of one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time.

This is a great documentary about the rise and fall of the great jazz pianist Miles Davis. It is not the definitive biography of Miles, but it is very good in its own right. It tells the story of how he began his career and how he ended it. It shows how the musical world turned on him, and how he continued to rise and fall. The music itself is very good, and the interviews with some of the musicians who worked with him are very interesting. It is also very interesting to see how people see the music of Miles Davis. Some people have a very negative view of him and the music he played. I found this documentary very entertaining and interesting, and highly recommended.

This is a great documentary on Miles Davis. It's really interesting to see his rise from a struggling, struggling artist to a legendary and influential musician. The film is quite interesting, but the interviews are a little bit cliche. There are some interviewees that are not really interesting or interesting enough to make the film interesting, like David Byrne. But the film is overall pretty good. The film is worth seeing.

This is a wonderful documentary about a man who is extremely intelligent but was denied his talent because of his race. In fact, it was Miles Davis who made the decision to not allow his musical talents to be considered by his race. This documentary is absolutely fascinating and it does a wonderful job at showing what it was like to be a black man in the early to mid-1960's. The interviewees include several famous black musicians who talk about the difficulties that Miles Davis had to go through when he was denied his talent. One of the most interesting interviews is with Chuck Berry who tells the story of how he had to leave his home because he had to leave his family and friends because he was denied his talent. Another great interview is with Joan Baez who talks about her struggles when she was denied her talent. This documentary is very interesting and it is very well done.

The movie is a bit long, but the story is so good and so well told that you don't feel that way. The acting is superb and the editing is great. It makes you feel like you're in the same room as the characters. The music is also great. It adds so much to the film. The movie really feels like you're there. It's very interesting and you don't get bored. It's very funny and very interesting. It really gives you a different view on the music of Miles Davis. It gives you a different point of view on what he is doing. The movie is also very interesting and it's well done. The only problem with the movie is that it is quite long. It's almost 2 hours and 45 minutes, but it is well worth it. It's a really good movie.
