Life Theme 3: Movies

Someone (a student, this fact matters seriously) asked me to watch the movie Whiplash, story of a promising Jazz drummer who wanted to be top class, reached out to a teacher at Juilliard who proves to be a taskmaster. Apparently the actors do a good job, but I loved the NYer review, which really focused on the fact that the movie got the Jazz wrong. Nothing wants to be compared to "benihana".
