Whiplash is a movie about a music academy where a young student is starting to pursue his passion as a drummer under his tutor who is an absolute tyrant, played by J.K. Simmons. His performance is truly amazing and lives long in the memory, as does the great music.
Fox Catcher follows the true story (if it was fiction I would have thought it too far fetched) of the American wrestling team preparing for the Olympics being coached by John du Pont (Steve Carrell). I really loved this film and Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo are also brilliant in it. It is hard to believe it was overlooked at the Oscars, which wasn’t a very exciting show this year.
The film I really want to see next is The Grand Budapest Hotel which looks good and weird!!
