One Sentence Review: Whiplash

One Sentence Review:

A music teacher that uses mental abuse to help create and find the next Charlie Parker.


Who would have thought the guy who played Peter Parkers boss in the Spider Man Trilogy or the Famers’ Insurance Guy would have been able to pull of this role.  I guess his role in the Academy Award nominee Juno should have given me an idea. J. K. Simmons is this movie.  The moment he shows up, he brings instant energy.  The final scene is amazing and it’s no wonder why J.K. Simmons won the best supporting actor.
