"There are no two words in the English language more harmful than 'good job'." -Whiplash (2014)
Whiplash is a one-of-its-kind musical drama that engages in an emotional ride of a drummer. Miles Teller (Andrew) acted brilliantly and absolutely nailed it! From high-hopes to feeling pressurized, he connected with his role so well.
We definitely cannot ignore J.K. Simmons (Fletcher). He got awarded with Best Supporting Actor in the 2015 Oscars. The kind of performance he gave in Whiplash is mind-blowing!
The cinematography is commendable. The closeups are adeptly edited together and the gripping tension is beautifully showcased. This movie neither rushes nor drags too much. The ending is very much intense and gripping. Director Damien Chazelle deserves the praise.
However, this movie glorifies bullying which can be a bit turn-off for certain individuals.
My final verdict: Ignore the bullying part and take the motivation this movie delivers. Woek hard, practice harder. Definitely a must-watch!
My overall score: 8.9⭐/10
