|02.24.15||Netflix|| A few qualifiers here: I've been a fan of J.K. Simmons since he burned a swastika into Beecher's ass on Oz, and the drums are my favorite instrument. I don't claim to know how to play them but I do love their sound and find that they are the most natural element to any song for me.|
With that in mind, I really liked this movie. Yes I don't really buy it as realistic and I can't tell if the jazz is legit or whatever... but J.K. Simmons playing a hard-ass prick and a movie filled with drum beats? Shit... The whole last 20 minutes of the film (end credits included) I was in heaven. Now that I'm thinking back on the plot... it seems pretty thin. But whatever, it doesn't matter. Simmons yelling "That's not my tempo!" is great in any reality.
