Review: When it comes to cinema, there are often little gems in a sea of bigger spectacles, that can break through in the most proficient way. Last year, I pleaded to the entire film universe that discover and understand Inside Llewyn Davis from the Coen Brothers after seeing it for the first time at NYFF. This year, Ive seem to already come to terms that the next film that will utilize all my energy and resources this year will be Damien Chazelles highly intense psychological drama Whiplash. An impeccable and tightly wound experience that brings your anxiety to a feverish level. As small, and utterly different as Im about to compare, I havent felt this uneasy with a films tension since Paul Greengrass Captain Phillips, coincidentally also was a NYFF title. Two other similar traits that embody the two are the intense and completely submersible performances that inhabit them. Stars Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons are absolutely astonishing, featuring two of the years very best turns.Chazelles film tells the story of Andrew (Teller), a first year music student that seeks out and joins the prestigious school band, headed by an intense and frightening teacher Mr. Fletcher (Simmons).Walking out of the screening I fully knew (though I fully hope to be proved wrong this year) that Miles Teller would be my Oscar Isaac this year. A performance that should shoot to the top of any awards consideration for a lead actor, but unfortunately will be passed over show after show. Teller is submerged in a way that we havent seen the young actor achieve at this stage in his career. After plowing onto the scene opposite Nicole Kidman in Rabbit Hole, and then helming The Spectacular Now with complete ease and intensity, I was not expecting him to be the machine of fury and magnitude that is on display in Whiplash. There are moments where he channels the emotional aura of performances like Tom Hulce/F. Murray Abraham in Amadeus, as crazy as that sounds. I am so excited to see where Teller goes from here. It makes the future of film a lot more bright, knowing that someone like him will be rising up in the ranks.Everything youve heard about J.K. Simmons is true and then some. A fully fleshed out supporting role, Chazelle doesnt write Fletcher as a caricature. Hes a deeply acute individual, full of passion and acrimony. Chazelle doesnt keep Simmons at a 10, he and Simmons allow him to find a range of empathy, hatred, and cryptic allowances that will keep you at the edge of your seat. As I watched Simmons flesh out a performance that can only be described as magnificent, I kept coming back in my mind to Christoph Waltz in the Oscar-winning Inglourious Basterds, a role that found much heat on the awards circuit. The world/all film lovers will not be able ignore the stunning presence of Simmons. A Supporting Actor nominations (maybe even a win) seems all but assured (and deserved). Looking back at the veteran actors career that included memorable roles in Juno, Burn After Reading, and Up in the Air, a role like this could not have come at a better time. Already impressive in his brief work in Jason Reitmans Men, Women & Children, writers, directors, casting agents, and producers will be pounding on the actors door.You cant credit Whiplash without citing the words and control by writer/director Damien Chazelle. An amazing and outstanding sophomore effort (unfortunately have not seen his debut Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench) that channels a young Bennett Miller. Vigorous, self-assured, and innovative, Chazelle is a brilliant auteur filmmaker that knows exactly what type of films he wants to make. He takes inspiration from his own life, his love of film and music, and other places Im sure we dont know about, and molds them into a gritty, layered experience, conditioned with rich characters, all realized through the writers story. Its one of the best scripts of the year.Whiplash features some of the best minutes of film seen in 2014. An ending that will bring tears t…

Review: *I tried to leave out any major story spoilers* Its day 6 now of the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. I went to check out Open Windows, starring porn star Sasha Grey, at the Alamo Drafthouse on 6th Street downtown. I introduce her as porn star because her career as an actress has not really taken off, even after a title role in The Girlfriend Experience from Steven Soderberg, one of the greatest movie directors of all time. She was also in many episodes of Entourage on HBO. Ive been kind of rooting for her since we dont hear many stories of porn stars becoming successful movie stars. They…cant be taken seriously. The Girlfriend Experience proved that wrong. Entourage played with the idea. Now, after hearing the premise, I was expecting Ms. Grey to be embracing her career in porn and actually let us watch her through Open Windows get naked in theaters. The film…did…not…deliver. What we do get is a world of technology. Almost futuristic, the film is shown through multiple webcams and security cameras. The villain has all of these at his disposal as well as the entire internet (apparently). Whatever statement the director was trying to make, I felt was lost. The third act really lost me. Its not even worth explaining. As for the rest of it, basically, we have an actress who sucks (Sasha plays an actress whos supposed to be popular), and her number one fan has a website and is set to meet her. The villain set this up to capture her and blame him for it. There are too many twists that the director couldnt even keep up with, and there were some applaud-worthy moments that were ruined by the way the film was made. It plays like a found-footage film, but were watching it on a computer. The entire thing is real-time so it feels like its all done in one take. What it SHOULD have been… Was a Rear Window homage. Thats what I was expecting based on an article in the Austin Chronicle that actually mentioned Rear Window as if Open Windows was going to pay respects to Hitchcock. Instead, windows here arent the ones we look through to engage in voyeurism like a pervert at our favorite porn star. Theyre the ones we look at on a computer screen! Elijah Wood (oh yeah, he was in it) shouldnt have been forced to leave his hotel room, as if the director wanted us to leave our comfort zone so early, even though a car chase erupts when he chases down the bad guy. This was actually the best scene in the film, and with a low camera angle through much of it from inside the car (via webcam on laptop in passenger seat that is somehow not sliding around everywhere). That should have been the climax, because it was actually mildly gripping until it kept going, slowing down the whole pace of the film. The narrative goes crazy with twists, too. Like, too many. They didnt make sense, either. The director admitted to this in a Q&A after the show. Audience members were asked for questions, yet unwilling to participate until the director just plain asked if anyone hated it so much that they wanted to slap him. True story.This is an opportunity we should have for more directors, actually.However, this guy was SO nice, I just felt bad for him. When a shot of Makers Mark was offered, someone took the opportunity. He slapped the director on the stage. He knew his movie wasnt good. Someone did actually ask if there was any commentary about being a celebrity or our current technology. He said that were all okay with living lives that should be private and arent. This answer was unrelated to the film. I wish Sasha would have showed up at the screening. Sasha Grey was basically playing herself, in the movie, an actress even. Except, one the world has never seen naked.Thats a joke, right? This flick will not help her serious movie career.
