This movie exhausted me. I’m beat. I used to be a drummer, and I remember it being pretty hard. I bled while I played but nearly to the extent Miles Teller’s character had to for his art in Whiplash. This movie takes being in band as a sport to a whole new level. Teller attends a music conservatory school under the tutelage of J.K. Simmons. Simmons was not only a complete psycho, but put on a fantastic performance. I think he has a real shot at winning an Oscar for this role. The movie is also just fantastic to watch with high drama, tension and wonderful music with some of the best drumming I’ve ever seen or heard. An excellent movie about the world of music. Don’t miss this one, one of the best of the year!
