This goal is despite not coming from a pedigree of greatest, musical or otherwise, with Jim, his high school teacher father, being a failed writer. Andrew is starting his first year at Shaffer Conservatory of Music, the best music school in the United States. At Shaffer, being the best means being accepted to study under Terence Fletcher and being asked to play in his studio band, which represents the school at jazz competitions. Based on their less than positive first meeting, Andrew is surprised that Fletcher asks him to join the band, albeit in the alternate drummer position which he is more than happy to do initially. Andrew quickly learns that Fletcher operates on fear and intimidation, never settling for what he considers less than the best each and every time. Being the best in Fletcher’s mind does not only entail playing well, but knowing that you’re playing well and if not what you’re doing wrong. His modus operandi creates an atmosphere of fear and of every man or woman for him/herself within the band. Regardless, Andrew works hard to be the best. He has to figure out his life priorities and what he is willing to sacrifice to be the best. The other question becomes how much emotional abuse he will endure by Fletcher to reach that greatness, which he may believe he can only achieve with the avenues opened up by Fletcher.
Plot: Under the direction of a ruthless instructor, a talented young drummer begins to pursue perfection at any cost, even his humanity.

J K Simmons won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his mean, bullying monster. Jazz teacher Terence Fletcher who abhors the words ‘good job.’

Fletcher tells a tale about Charlie Parker and how doing a good job was not enough for him. Good job means mediocrity.

Yet Fletcher is a mediocre educator and his college seems not to have noticed this. Instead of being an inspiration his students fear him. He is a nasty tyrant and an incident from his past comes back to haunt him.

Miles Teller plays Andrew Neiman the put upon jazz drummer in the Shaffer Conservatory in New York. Neiman is eager to impress Fletcher but nothing he can do is good enough and withstands all the effluent Fletcher throws at him until one day he snaps.

Damien Chazelle unleashed an unethical monster in Fletcher with Neiman providing the film’s heart but I am not convinced that this is a good film. The rest of the students in the class are silent to the abuse taking place right in front of them. They are young adults, not kids and they do nothing about it.

“There are no two words in the English language more harmful than good job”.

Whiplash follows are main character Andrew Neyman who is a young jazz drummer, single-minded in his pursuit to rise to the top of his elite east coast music conservatory. Plagued by the failed writing career of his father, Andrew hungers day and night to become one of the greats. Terence Fletcher, an instructor equally known for his teaching talents as for his terrifying methods, leads the top jazz ensemble in the school. Fletcher discovers Andrew and transfers the aspiring drummer into his band, forever changing the young man’s life.

OK let me just start off with this. You had no idea how much I was really looking forward to Whiplash. This was on my movies to check out list, because I heard nothing but positive things from this movie and I heard a lot of people described this film has the “Full Metal Jacket” but with no war or guns, but with music and well… drums. I think Whiplash and “Birdman” was the two movies I wanted to see before making my best movies of the year list, because who knows they might make the list. I haven’t seen “Birdman” yet but will do soon, but I finally had the chance to see Whiplash and my god this movie was just so spectacularly flawless in many ways. Whiplash is the best move of 2014.

J.K. Simmons in this movie probably pulls of the best performance in his career. Every word that came out of his mouth didn’t feel like he was reading from the script then act it out. I felt every angry punch of words that came out of him, because it was so real. I didn’t see J.K. Simmons just playing a movie character in this movie, no he was the freaking Fletcher.

Now let’s talk about Terence Fletcher: The best way to describe Fletcher to those who haven’t seen the film yet, well his like Sgt. Hartman from “Full Metal Jacket”. When he’s on screen your locked on and he’s also the kind of person that would be somebody’s worse nightmare to have for a boss. This guy doesn’t just like music, he breaths music and he wants his band to do perfect. His opinion and his look on music is another thing why I didn’t flat out just hated him, I actually understood him. He made a very good point about how people will comment on you act and say “You did a good job”, and yes I did use the words “you did a great job”, in my past reviews but now I’m never going to use it ever again after this movie.

Miles Teller was another stand out performances in this movie, and just like “Foxcatacher” where Channing Tatum was so over looked by his performance, well Miles Teller has proved himself to be more then a teen in a movie that will be forgotten and so would he, but no Miles Teller played this character so brilliantly he could become the next big thing. Now his character in this movie has the love of the true art of music and you can see that he wants to tell people his love for music, but when the harsh life of reality comes crashing into him it’s truly heartbreaking to see his struggle and effort just not being good enough. Teller played this character so realistic and so brilliantly flawless.

The directing and the writing in this was just….perfect. Damien Chazelle gave this movie style and passion to tell a story about two strong music buffs battling out and he freaking nailed it.

This movie also had probably the best finale that I’ve seen in years. My nails were digging into the seat. I didn’t dare to look away not for one moment, not for one second. I was simply locked on and when it was over… I’m kidding you I actually clapped towards the end of this movie. Now the biggest cliche that I always hear from critics when their talk about a different movies and their use words like “You will clap at the end”, but you don’t, or “You will feel inspired after the film”, and I you don’t. But Whiplash actually did make me feel inspirited towards the end and made me clap. It’s message of not giving up and the dream that you been chancing for isn’t just going to come to you. Movies like Pride, freedom Writers and all that such never ever give me that inspiring feeling inside of me, until I watched this movie.

Overall rating: Whiplash is a movie that everybody needs to see. This isn’t just a popcorn movie where you come and put you legs up and laugh a couple of times, no this movie reaches out to people out there that have the same problems that these character’s have, with their passion of what their what to do in life get’s over shadowed by something you don’t want to do and this movie get’s it right. So go and see if you have the chance.

An important hardened lesson in resilience and when to stop measuring up to your mentor. Whiplash is a captivating study of ambition.
Taking the festival circuit by storm since its Sundance premiere in January, Whiplash is starting to feel like the underdog that could go far with its crowd-pleasing intensity. On the surface, it’s a gritty story about a brutal student-mentor relationship that oversteps boundaries. Underneath, it’s a piercing examination of the psyche of unbridled ambition. Whiplash is a film that stops at nothing. As a result, it’s the best film I’ve seen in years, and I say that without hesitation. This is a film that resonates on every single level and every moment counts. If writer/director Damien Chazelle was striving for greatness as much as his protagonist, then he has achieved it.

Miles Teller, who’s been steadily growing on me since The Spectacular Now, stars as Andrew Neyman, a 19-year-old aspiring jazz drummer who’s pushed and inspired by the abuse and aspirations of his school band leader Fletcher, played by the ferocious J.K. Simmons like we’ve never seen him before. Chazelle has described the film as an origin story to the jazz musicians of the golden age, and it thrives on the myths of jazz heroes such as Charlie Parker. They’re urgently looking for the next Parker, in search of perfection. But with that comes a great irony. The music genre is known as one for freedom of expression but here the jazz is soulless and mechanical, and that clouds the ethical judgment of the characters. Even so, Fletcher is a man who can tell if you have the right tempo within a bar. Although most of the audience for the film may not know much about music including myself, you get a feel for what he’s looking for and when someone’s wrong even if you don’t know why. Simmons is as good as they say he is. He’s a force of nature, with a terrifying presence that incites the fear Bryan Cranston achieved with the peak of his Walter White. But it’s not a one-note performance. Simmons is still subversive with moments of weakness, insecurity, approachability, and he also sometimes brings in the lightness he’s known for in other roles with Jason Reitman, exec producer here.

Even though he’s an unlikeable character with nothing nice to say, he’s still somewhat endearing and enigmatic, much like R. Lee Ermey’s drill sergeant in Full Metal Jacket. This demasculinisation through a barrage of insults is a theme explored in Whiplash and it argues whether it’s a crime or an ‘ends justifying the means’ factor of life. It’s not just a music film, but also one that adapts to the elements of sports training, war at boot camp and biopic genres with the way it frames its elements. Fletcher is representative of the devil on our shoulders that yells at us that we’re not good enough and that symbolic idea resonates deeply for me. His poisonous words are more a part of Andrew’s psyche than legitimate coaching techniques. What grabs me about the film is its discussion on artistic perfection, and especially in these intimate and rough sequences of practicing. What is objectively great in art? When is it good enough, and why? It toes a fascinating line. That’s why drumming is such an interesting choice for the film to explore because it’s so instinctive. Drummers have to make decisions within a fraction of a second and talent can only take you so far. The roaring beat in Whiplash puts your heart in your throat. Teller’s performance as Andrew is terrific, one to match Simmons.

Chazelle is committed on expressing the physicality of drumming and Teller captures it exhaustively without feeling contrived. It’s the virtuosity of the writing that allows us into Andrew’s head however. It’s a long road to the top, but the script makes the right decision to allow him to revel in the little moments of success, but then to immediately test him in surprising and involving ways. Each turn of the story shapes his expectations and ambitions and then escalates it to the right point. While the film is a gripping experience nonetheless, in retrospect perhaps it is too bitingly cynical. It does suggest that you have to be deprived of a meaningful relationship to achieve your goals. It does appear to be very anti-positive reinforcement, but perhaps it’s merely a statement on the abundant sheltering that the latest generation is enduring. Whiplash is refreshing to see, we all know we wouldn’t be resilient enough to take that kind of punishment so it’s cathartic to watch Andrew go through it all and see how far he’ll go. His frustration, regrets, fear and rage with himself cuts to the core of the human condition as he’s pushed further and further.

The technical aspects of the film help it become so stimulating with dizzying closeups tightly edited together and its the stark orange tinted cinematography. It’s thoroughly impressive that the film was shot in only 19 days for them to get shots so immaculately timed and performed with all those complicated movements. There’s a refreshing brevity to the film with its sharp atmosphere, but it’s so rich in emotion, psychological tension and personal subtext. It neither rushes nor drags, on paper nor on screen. It really is a film that lingers in your mind for days, nagging you, like Fletcher over your shoulder. Maybe it’ll continue to linger for weeks. I hope so too, especially for Oscar voters. It seems that J.K. Simmons is building momentum to be a lock for Best Supporting Actor at this point. However, Whiplash isn’t just a best of year film, nor best of decade. It approaches best of all-time worthy with its identifiable themes of meticulous work ethics, fulfilling aspirations, resilience of the soul, and knowing when to no longer measure yourself to your mentor. I’ll take this film with me for a while as a screaming motivator.

10/10. Best film of the decade.

To push relentlessly for a perfection few will ever appreciate…
Miles Teller is simply superb in this story. His is the hugely emotionally charged depiction of “Andrew”, a young student with a desire to be a great drummer, His practicing attracts the attention of teacher “Fletcher” (JK Simmons) and what ensues are a frequently tortuous series of encounters as the latter pushes the younger man to the limits of his patience, his endurance and of his physical potentialities too! Simmons picked up an Oscar for his role as the mentor – a man whose behaviour bordered on the brutal at times – but I could have been doing with a little more of his own backstory to legitimise what was, frankly, completely unacceptable behaviour for anyone in an educational environment. The remainder of the film belongs to Teller though, and I found myself completely engrossed in his quest for perfection for himself, but also to impress and satisfy his musical nemesis. At times you can almost see his hatred; you certainly see the blood, sweat and tears! It’s a salutary lesson for the many of us who just assume the drummer is the person at the back making a racket, and the final few scenes are as good as any we will ever see in a film about music, or anything else. At times the plot is too far fetched, and that let’s up on the intensity on occasion (the car crash, for example) but all told, I think this is a cracker of a film.
