I can't help but feel that the Miles Davis documentary was a bit too over the top. Not only was it made to praise Davis, but it also went so far as to show that Davis was also a misogynistic man. So much so that I was nearly offended. If the director had made the documentary as a personal attack on Davis, it would have been a little more accurate. But it would also have been more relevant to Davis' music. For instance, when Miles came out with "Oh!" the album, Davis said that the record was like "the first attempt at a hip-hop record". But it also gives the impression that Davis was aware of the record's critical and commercial failure. It would have been better to show the negative side of Davis, to make it clear that he was not a misogynist, and that he was a little more understanding of women. It also would have been better to show Davis' love for women. On the other hand, the documentary does make some good points. For instance, the statement that women are as good as men, or that men are less concerned about women. It also highlights the fact that Davis' recordings have been unfairly compared to jazz standards. They are not as good as jazz standards, and I think that was the main reason that Davis was hated by his peers. But the film's main flaw was that it was too over the top. The most I could say is that it was not too far-fetched. But I don't think it was meant to be serious. It's a nice documentary, but I don't think it's worth all the hype.

A documentary about the jazz musician Miles Davis. This is a film which was made as a way of celebrating his life and music. He was not only a musician, but he was also an extremely creative and intelligent man. He was also very unique and inspiring, especially for people of his time. He was well loved, but hated by the music world. He was very hard to get to understand, and even though he was very sensitive and had his own opinions, he was very intelligent. He didn't write music to please people, he wrote music to please himself and his audience. His music is very beautiful and very inspiring. He is the real inspiration of modern music, and the biggest inspiration of jazz. He created and released three albums in his life. "Fifties, Sixties, and Seventies", "Wichita," and "The Blue Note Series." He did not write these songs, but they were inspired by his experiences. He did not write the music, but he was the composer. He was the one who wrote the music. The music is fantastic. There is no other musician who can touch this one. He has many fans, and many critics, but he is not appreciated by most. He is very inspiring and his music is very beautiful. "Fifties, Sixties, and Seventies" is a perfect movie for people who love Miles Davis. It is about his life, his music, and his life. This is a great movie to watch. It is not only about his life, but about his music. It is very beautiful and inspiring. I recommend this movie to people who love Miles Davis and his music.
