The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Whiplash”

By Matt Neglia 

The 2014 retrospective continues this week with not only one of the year’s most acclaimed independent films but one of the year’s best films in general. Damien Chazelle’s second feature-length film “Whiplash” premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and went on to earn 5 Academy Award nominations including 3 wins. We talk about the film’s themes, its characters, its craft and even dish out some criticism as well. Joining me for this intense podcast review I have Amanda SpearsJosh ParhamDan Bayer & Patreon guest Connor Olen. Also be sure to check out our other 2014 reviews of “Selma,” “Ida,” “Foxcatcher,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Wild” & “Inherent Vice.”
