A visual and emotional masterpiece. A tale of old, made anew.
100th new movie of 2020!
Like a game of Oregon trail with the pace set to grueling, Whiplash packs more adrenaline than a summer action blockbuster.
Miles Teller and JK Simmons drum out an unbelievable two hour duet, playing beautifully off each other without missing a fucking beat. This film often draws comparisons to Black Swan, which is understandable, but I NEVER would have thought Whiplash would be the more intense of the two.
The characters are perfectly unlikable, self-centered, and vain, which all add up to some top notch, hard hitting, sweat drenched, blood soaked drama.
