Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum.
Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash has absolutely nothing to do with Mickey Rourke’s remarkably tanned Russian psychopath from Iron Man 2 and everything to do with drumming. It also happened to receive rave reviews when it recently played at the Sundance Film Festival, so we’re keeping our eye out for this one.
A young musician struggles to become a top jazz drummer under the tutelage of a ruthless band conductor.
Whiplash stars Miles Teller, J.K. Simmons, Melissa Benoist, Austin Stowell, Jayson Blair and is for release in the United States in October, 2014.
