Whiplash ★★★★½

Visceral, visually captivating, ruthlessly entertaining, Whiplash is one of the best movies I've seen in a while.

I saw this movie with pretty high expectations, from all the reviews and word-of-mouth testimonies that I have encountered. I can say that I am satisfied. Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons really pushed their roles to the limit. Just from sitting transfixed at the screen, I myself experienced the same kind of pain and hardship that the protagonist faced, and the unrelenting, merciless persona delivered by J.K. Simmons. This is a movie gripping at you with intensity, keeping you at the edge of your seat, the music was amazing, the acting, the cinematography, everything. Go watch this movie and get whiplashed.
