A film that makes jazz watchable is quite an achievement and yet Whiplash makes it look easy. An engaging story with fantastic performances all round makes this a real audio and visual treat. Jazz has a tendency for overlong self indulgent solos yet this is actually one of this films strengths. it's only January and we already have a film of the year candidate - remarkable!
Excellent comedy horror which has as much laughs as it does tension. Great performances all round and some fantastic comic timing. It's just been revealed recently that this being remade for the US (WTF?) It's a New Zealand film it's not bloody Japanese! Let's hope the US version is as much of a screw up as the Old Boy remake was. Anyway check this one out, it's a little cracker.
