Whiplash

Awards season is in full swing, and every conscientious movie fan is catching up on all the nominated movies and performances.

Minor spoiler alert:

The movie Whiplash is amazing not just because of the freakishly great performance of J.K. Simmons, but because of the final scene in which the relationship between two characters completely, utterly changes from hurt, hate and anger to forgiveness, acceptance and even a measure of affection — all during a drum solo — without a word being said.

Pure brilliance!

And I’m not even talking about the music…
