    Explicitly saying what Simmons' purpose in the film is showcases the film's main problem, an inability to be subtle. It lacks subtext, everything is just said out loud instead. It is fairly obvious from the start why Simmons is doing what he is doing, the way he is doing it. I wished there where more nuance to the protagonist, as well. I have a hard time rooting for him. Major kudos for Simmons' performance!

    "There are no two words in the English language more harmful than 'good job'."

  5. Django's rating of the film Whiplash

    An excellent short film padded out to feature length with mixed results.

  6. F/K's rating of the film Whiplash

    A film about obsessively pursing your passion. Is it all worth it in the end?

    Intenso film de principio a fin, en todo momento tiene un ritmo que hace que no te aburras. Las actuaciones y personajes son formidables, la historia esta bien llevada a cabo y genera emociones en el espectador. Recomendable.

  11. Luca Casilli's rating of the film Whiplash

  12. Nafhan N's rating of the film Whiplash

    This is how dreamers movie should be told – it's all about freaking tears and sweat and blood. Damien has stolen my mind and heart for the second time.

  13. unearthly_red's rating of the film Whiplash

    if this is a movie about abuse, then the message is more than questionable: the toxic relationship between Andrew and his teacher culminates in Andrew achieving "greatness" through succumbing to abuse, because "hard work" obviously implies crawling out of a fucking car crash and just getting over yourself. but it's a well-made movie, i guess.

  14. Doe Deer's rating of the film Whiplash

    the story about a passionate drum player who becomes as hard on the drums as his borderline sociopath teacher used to be on him

  15. Chihao Tsang's rating of the film Whiplash

  19. SlinkyLi's rating of the film Whiplash

    Dramatic, quickly driven. Compelling performances; in general, fairly grounded.

  20. JCPJD's rating of the film Whiplash

    This is a prime piece of storytelling in the best traditions. A story about fathers & sons, talent & hard work, ego and humility. The performances match the script and there is a strong dramatic tension from the outset that never relinquishes. It is not a totally 'realistic' film in that the script is so tight, there is no room for deviation, and this works in its favour. A classic chamber piece of film - jazz style.
