I watched Whiplash for the first time last night… Holy shit that film is going to haunt me for a while but I already can’t wait to watch it again?? Like, it was so intense that I had my hoodie drawn up over my chin for at the very least half of the runtime. It honestly did a better job of scaring me than every horror movie that comes out these days. It’s coming to a theater up at school soon and I think I’m going to see it again because I just want to marvel at it. God… it’s so visually stunning and it kept me on edge the whole time. I am so glad that my Jazz Band director was never as terrifying as J.K. Simmons was in that film. And they even played one of the songs that we did when I was in that class, but I didn’t realize it for half the film because I was so enveloped in what was going on. 10/10 would freak out over it again.
