This is a great, psychological , brutal movie. Make sure you have a strong stomach as it is not for the faint of heart.
J.K. Simmons plays the part of a hard ass music instructor at a highly competitive music academy in New York, while Miles Teller is the aspiring student who wants to be the greatest jazz drummer. It’s hard to tell between the two of them who might really be suffering from mental illness.
I like this film as I believe we live in an era where pushing oneself to their limits is not as common as it used to be. Is this a good thing? Is it not? I guess you will have to see it and find out for yourself.
What happens when you put abuse of power and a driven perfectionist together? Whiplash.
