Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Primarily two actors and a jazz score, but the result is a crackling good drama that feels almost like a thriller. Smart, stylish and intense.
Fresh: It would be an insult to call Chazelle a "promising" filmmaker, as this movie doesn't indicate mere potential - it is evidence of authentic, sometimes blazing talent.
Fresh: 'Whiplash' is electric from beginning to end, a musical story of obsession, frustration and outright cruelty built on two knockout performances.
Fresh: Revealing both the dangers and payoffs of artistic ambition, Whiplash is sure to establish Chazelle as a directorial force to be reckoned with.
This is hands down one of the best films I have seen all year!!
i just seen this movie today and it was WAY better then i thought it was going to be
The acting is superb! It’s filmed, not like a drama, but almost like a thriller. The ending is one of the greatest you’ll ever see.
