A must watch Sundance flick by director Damien Chazelle tells the story of Andrew Neyman, an ambitious young jazz drummer, single-minded in his pursuit to rise to the top of his elite east coast music conservatory. Whiplash isn't the straight-up, feel-good, inspirational jazz film that the adverts might have you believe - it's a jolting thriller and bruising character drama, built around a core of pure white heat. It's not just the performances that make Whiplash - it excels technically too, rat-a-tat-tatting along on a snappy current of snare fills and cymbal crashes. Writer/director Damien Chazelle builds jazz music and drumming into the language of the film, and even in its most heart-palpitatingly intense moments your toes remain tapping to the vibrant musical compositions that the film centres around. At once precise and controlled, but also bursting with energy, the riveting climax will have you struggling to remain in your seat and leave you both a nervous wreck and an awestruck punter.
