Damien Chazelle United States, 2014

Daniel S.'s rating of the film Whiplash

Damien Chazelle is not interested in losers. Those who fail are quickly forgotten and join the multitude of normal people (I'm afraid I'm part of this crowd). So the Genius is a solitary man who sacrifices everything to achieve his goal. No problem with me as long as we stay in the artistic domain. But it's another story if one applies the same philosophy in politics for instance. Think about it! Highly recommended.
