  1. Oh gosh ! Your article gave me want to see the Whiplash trailer ! Although he is really great at drums, Flether is really bossy and pushes Andrew to his limit… But as you said at the end, it give us a life lesson : If we work hard, we get what we want.

  2. After watching LaLaLand and saw that Damien Chazelle also directed Wiplash, I really wanted to watch this movie ! I’m going to watch it soon !

  3. I watched this film at the movie theater with a friend and altough it isn’t one to watch to relax, I really appreciated it. However, my friend told me during the end credits that she had no idea how anyone could like this film…And I didn’t know what to answer!
