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. Telling the story of a quiet student who dreams of becoming one of the world’s premiere drummers, Whiplash offers up a juicy supporting role to a great character actor. And you can figure out why I say that the movie is completely stolen out from underneath him.

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Well, I wasn't disappointed, that's for sure. In my opinion, it is basically some kind of dark version of 'Fame' mixed with a nail-biting thriller. Still, even though J.K. Simmons was really amazing, giving the best performance of his career, they went really far with this character. I mean, the guy ... read more

Description: A talented young jazz drummer experiences a trial by fire when he's recruited by a ferocious instructor whose unyielding search for perfection may lead to his undoing. For as far back as Andrew Neyman (Miles Teller) can remember, he's been watching his father fail.

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)

"I have a story to tell, when I took film classes I had an unpleasant encounter with a teacher who was extremely direct, explosive, and will let you know your projects were terrible. I bring this up because the similar event happened in Damian Chazelle’s "Whiplash," a film about inspiring jazz band drummer Andrew (Miles Teller) and his uneasy experience with his brutal tutor Terrence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons). Likewise, the film, based on his own short, was loosely based on Chazelle’s experienc"

“Así que… volví a ver Whiplash y no pude dejar de reiterar en mi mente la gran diferencia entre el drama social y el Slice of Life. Ambos muy parecidos al situarse en lo mundano, el día a día de gente que puedes conocer en la calle con la intención de retratar algún aspecto de nuestra sociedad. La gran diferencia proviene en la forma en cómo se toman tales aspectos. El mismo nombre de drama social ya te habla de una situación dramática y/o trágica a con el tema, no va sobre mostrar el cómo se desarrolla la actividad del personaje frente a como le afecta. Esto puede representarse de múltiples formas, esforzarse por buscar lo que quiere en su actividad, descuidar su alrededor o que posea un detrimento en su vida que le impide seguir adelante.
