A young and talented drummer attending a prestigious music academy finds himself under the wing of the most respected professor at the school, one who does not hold back on abuse towards his students. The two form an odd relationship as the student wants to achieve greatness, and the professor pushes him.
In "Whiplash" we follow a promising young jazz drummer named Andrew, in his pursuit to rise to the top. When he gets a place in one of the best drumming schools in the East Coast. He is presented with an instructor who will stop at nothing to get the best out of his students, and by nothing, we really mean NOTHING. The story is as intense as it is well acted. With some nail biting scenes and an ending which will get you on the edge of your seat. J.K Simmons gives us one of the best performances of the decade as the batshit insane instructor named Fletcher. Miles Teller also gives us a great performance as Andrew. Whiplash is definitely one to watch!
Grow some nails because after watching because you’ll need to bite them to make it through “Whiplash”. As you may already know, “Whiplash” tells a story about a student drummer who wants to make it and a “no-compromise” teacher who will drive his students to their limits. Perhaps he drives them a bit too far as you will see in the movie, but nonetheless, J.K. Simmons’ portrayal as the coach, called Fletcher, is just amazing. However, not to forget are the other performances, which were great as well. So as implied before, the movie is very tense and might not be suited for everyone (especially the faint-hearted), but the story is superb so be sure to give it a chance anyways. Conclusion?
