Full of tension, energy and dangerous excitementWHIPLASH (Chazelle, USA, 2014, cert 15) is an edgy drama which features two superb performances by Oscar and Golden Globe winner JK Simmons (Spiderman 1-3) and Miles Teller (Divergent series), as music tutor and student who are locked in a pursuit for excellence – at any cost? The film features “an electrified final act that builds towards one of the most glorious, satisfying finales in the recent cinema… However genius may flourish, you know it when you see it, and Whiplash is it.” Robbie Collin (23/2/15 – Telegraph)
