Whiplash is an amazing film. It was directed by Damien Chazelle and it was released at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014.
The plot is about a guy called Andrew who decides to get into the Shaffer Conservatory in New York. He starts to play drums in an amateur jazz band, but one day Mr Terence Fletcher, the head of the conservatory’s official jazz band, hears him play and invites him to play in his jazz band.
Andrew couldn’t imagine the discipline that he would have to develop, and all the pain that he would have to feel.
This movie has a wonderful soundtrack, so it’s recommended for jazz lovers who want to know about the day-to-day life of a jazz artist’s life.
