Getting Greatness Right?
Starring: Miles Teller, J. K. Simmons, Melissa Benoist, Paul Reiser, Austin Stowell, Nate Lang, Max Kasch and Damon Gupton
This film made me want to be great at something... anything. If you don't mind a little cursing, okay a lot of cursing, run don't walk to see this brilliant film directed by Damien Chazelle. Chazelle, who had done nothing I'd ever heard of prior to Whiplash, was apparently inspired by his own miserable band experience during high school. This is undoubtedly one of the best films of 2014.
