If you’re a fan of jazz, you know that the music form can be moving and captivating, pulling you in with the flow, but it can also be equally maddening and chaotic in its attempts to reach genius. In many ways, Miles Ahead fits both extremes.

Don Cheadle embodies jazz legend Miles Davis, a legend [...]

The Meddler is a comedy whose heart and soul comes straight from writer/director Lorene Scafaria. With Seeking a Friend for the End of the World she explored the search for companionship during the end of days, and though The Meddler isn’t set within an apocalyptic environment, its narrative is just as ambitious.

It’s been two [...]
