Miles Teller plays a student jazz drummer whose ambition drives him to extremes, while he endures the abusive tactics of a teacher/band leader (J.K. Simmons). Much like director Damien Chazelle’s extensive use of close-ups, this film focuses intensely on the personal dramatic conflict. Fortunately, Teller and Simmons create potent characters. The pace never lags, but the grueling encounters (and Simmons’ character) sometimes push beyond reality. Still, it’s a compelling character study.

 

3.5 out of 5 stars (3.5 / 5)
