    Verdict - Intended to be a drama, this is edge of the seat madness.

    Until recent, I wasnt even aware that film by this name is up for release, its only when JK Simmons started propping up during all the nominations did I youtube it. While it seems like a musical drama, dont be fooled, this one is a taut, brilliant thriller with some great music.


    1. Phenomenal performances by both Miles Teller & JK Simnons. JK especially, is dangerously brilliant & will surely take the Oscar this year.

    2. Great music, which a film like this must have.

    3. A runtime of 107 min is crisp and sharp, leaving you wanting more.

    4. The writing itself, which makes this film so much fun.

    5. A cracker of a climax.


    Honestly nothing

    To sum it up, this ones a no brainer. The best film I've seen this year & maybe one of the top films in the last few years, Whiplash is a little gem that must be sampled. Book your tickets without even thinking.
