    A strong mentor is a way better motivator than any productivity app

  5. smndvdcl's rating of the film Whiplash (Short)

    Chazzelle aptly illustrates the price of genius and excellence in art development; authoritarian mentoring in order to harness someone's potential. When considering directing monoliths such as Hitchcock, Kubrick, Kurosawa, Von Trier, Welles, and Ford, one must also remember the painful and uncompromising journey they take cast and crew on. Do you need a dictatorial element as a creative in order to transcend?

  7. João R's rating of the film Whiplash (Short)

    Slow tempo and then fully tense. That's it.

  8. come-in-alone's rating of the film Whiplash (Short)

    Effective even as a short. Still very glad Chazelle made a longer and much more powerful version!

  12. cinegeek.de's rating of the film Whiplash (Short)

    Whiplash ist filmisches Adrenalin! In einer Zeit, da Filme von Marktforschern auf bestimmte Zielgruppen hin konzipiert werden, ist das hier ein tief persönliches und lebendiges Drama! Wie weit würdest du für den Erfolg gehen?(...) die ganze Rezension plus eine Film List der Sundance Gewinner gibts auf cinegeek.de

  15. ionosonde's rating of the film Whiplash (Short)

    watched out of curiosity after enjoying the full-length. definitely fulfills its intention of showing potential, but (understandably) hits nowhere near as hard as the full film. actually, the full film is even better than i would have expected after watching this short -- does that mean this is worse than i expected or the full film is better than i would have expected? i'm not too sure.

  22. dudewiththeface's rating of the film Whiplash (Short)

    A dry run for what would later be the powerhouse of 2014 feature length Whiplash, this still delivers a punch to the gut, although a softer and less impactful one. Still the potential is on display and it's a smart choice when on the road of indie filmmaking to do a test run to demonstrate a tangible direction your headed rather than just pitch it.
