Movie Review: Whiplash – J.K. Simmons Surely Deserves An Oscar For This

whiplash-01Whiplash directed by Damien Chazelle is based on his experiences in the Princeton High School Studio Band.

Whiplash is the story of Andrew Neimann’s (Miles Teller) drumming career at a music conservatory, and the relationship he has with his horrific instructor, Terrence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons).

The beauty of this one is the fact that it’s a simple story with a lot of intensity and maturity.

Whiplash is all about a percussionist Andrew Neimann (Miles Teller) trying to make it in the jazz scene under the guidance of his music teacher Terrence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons).

This is where things get interesting. The story dives deeper into the dark as Terrence Fletcher’s true colors start to show through. He is manipulative, intense and of abusive nature.

In fact Terrence Fletcher, is so evil and harsh to all his students, especially to Andrew Neimann, many of them come to the point of a mental breakdown. You actually begin to hate him, knowing very well that it’s just a film and not reality.

As the story progress, Terrence Fletcher gives his core drummer a break and asks Andrew Neimann to sit in on the drum stool after he hears him play one day. However, Andrew Neimann’s excitement at playing as part of the core band is quickly cut short when Terrence Fletcher hurls a chair at him from across the room.

Andrew is humiliated, slapped and yelled at time and again for not keeping his tempo. In all of this he meets Nicole (Melissa Benoist) and starts a sweet little love story.

As the film moves forward, there is loads of drama, heart break and strange twists that will keep you hook on till the very end.

Whiplash is also the most engrossing and entertaining films I have seen and the climax is something that is truly with it.
