49- #DLMChallenge “Whiplash”

For #49 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on April 1st I watched: Whiplash.

J.K. Simmons certainly deserved that Oscar!

I’ve been a big fan since I first saw him in Spiderman, but holy web slinger he can make you uncomfortable! I sure hope director Damien Chazelle wasn’t drawing from real-life experiences when he created this character.

Miles Teller is also great in this film. And yes, I’m putting both of their performances in the same echelon. Miles pulls off the determined, arrogant prick who has the most to lose.

I still think of that last scene all these months later.

The Main Crew:

Cinematographer: Sharone Meir (Mean Creek, Coach Carter)

Written and Directed by: Damien Chazelle (Grand Piano [written by], La La Land)

The Main Cast:

Miles Teller (21 & Over, The Spectacular Now)

J.K. Simmons (Spiderman, Juno)
