Gush: ‘Whiplash’ directed by Damien Chazelle

I left Whiplash tonight feeling like I had just downed ten cups of coffee. I won’t dare spoil the film for you here, but it gets you motivated to do things, much like the character in the film.

Astoundingly, the writer/director of Whiplash is only twenty-nine years old. The film originated as an 18-minute short, however after big praise at the 2013 Sundance, it was made to a full-length.

The Jason Reitman sponsored film featured his favourite go-to actor, J.K. Simmons, who for once showed some amazing talent. I was also surprised to see the aged Mad About You lead Paul Reiser take on a fatherly role.
