A decidedly mediocre young drummer is discovered by a tyrannical music teacher and transferred to his class. It is in this class, with this teacher, that he discovers his own breaking point and strives to surpass it. It takes traditional thriller elements (outrageous villain, inexperienced victim, plenty of blood) and turns them into something wholly new and utterly provocative. It’s almost impossible to single out the best part of this film, considering the flawless performances, masterful script, and meticulously crafted soundtrack. Watch this movie to step out of your own life for a while and come back asking “How far would I go?”

You’ll only watch this movie once. However, you won’t forget it. Great actors acting greatly!

I’m dating a drummer right now, so this felt like requiered viewing. It is such a damn good movie, no matter whether you are dating a close to 7 feet tall musician you want to impress or not. Simmons is a force, Miles Teller is surprisingly good. The pace of this movie is so satisfying. Love, love, love.
