I don't know why I haven't seen this yet as I enjoy Miles Teller quite a bit. I've been hearing nothing but good things about it. Damien Chazelle is definitely an example of making hit or misses. Seeing as he directed this, but wrote the horrible sequel to The Last Exorcism. The acting here is pretty amazing. J.K. Simmons is one of the most intense instructors I have ever seen portrayed on screen.... read more

Poor Miles Teller, he’s so damn good in Whiplash that it almost feels cruel how completely stolen the movie is from him.

Simmons) a esteemed music teacher who's notorious for his caustic approach in the classroom. The leader of the school's top jazz ensemble, Fletcher promptly transfers Neyma ... (more)

"First viewing - Jan. 22nd On the eve of the Oscar nom announcements, I finally caught up with a past nominee that I've been meaning to get to. Whiplash turned out to be a more complex film than I'd anticipated. On the one hand I really enjoyed the ways it explores how great art can come out of adversity & the ways artists can rise to greatness. As a lifelong music lover, it was fascinating to me the way this student-teacher relationship played out. On the other hand, to some degree the film see"
