There are not many movies that I like more than I did Whiplash. I watched this last night, and wow, I was just completely carried away in the rhythm of the film. Sure, there are aspects that feel so typical of the student-mentor film genre, but it really does go beyond that and in slightly unexpected places. But it’s really the construction that blew me away, the fantastic use of imagery to convey sound, and vice versa. Can’t recommend this enough.
