Blunt Reviews Presents: Whiplash (2015)

Whiplash-7121.cr2

Rising star filmmaker Damien Chazelle presents a film that is damn near perfect. Every element is finely tuned, with an outstanding screenplay from Chazelle and some of the best editing you’ll see all year, courtesy of Tom Cross. Miles Teller is fantastic as the protagonist, however the show is stolen by J.K. Simmons who is phenomenal. Chazelle’s directing style is ruthless as we literally see blood, sweat and tears on screen in this dark exploration into the destruction of the body and soul as a young man strives to become the best at any cost. A truly extraordinary film.
