Whiplash (2014)

In writer/director Damien Chazelle's musical drama about a psychological battle of wits and talent:

  • the growing tension between talented and determined young jazz student Andrew Neiman (Miles Teller) and his perfectionist, relentless and abusive Terence Fletcher (Oscar-winning J.K. Simmons), a notoriously tyrannical jazz music instructor at New York City's prestigious Shaffer Conservatory
  • the final confrontation between Fletcher and Andrew (pushed past his breaking point) at the JVC Jazz Festival, when Andrew asserted himself and performed a magnificent drum solo of "Caravan" to defy Fletcher and force his teacher (and the band) to follow his lead
