Full Metal Jacket meets jazz drumming in this very well-received film about a young and talented drummer and his search for perfection under the abusive tuition of JK Simmons’s music professor. In Whiplash, Simmons, who has a background in music and whose face is familiar from supporting roles in such films as Juno and Spiderman, gives an Oscar-winning performance in a long-awaited leading role.
