I've read forums where there are drummers who've had this very variety of "mentor" (yelling, degrading, throwing things even...) and they THANK them for helping forming them musically! Go figure...

Great art is born from great pain.

Love that line, so true. Look at Blues. Oddly enough, that's a quote from Gomez Addams from the TV show "The Addams Family".

Definitely going to see this movie.

Really looking forward the the James Brown Movie too. It's out as of yesterday.

I can't help but think of Schillinger from OZ whenever I see JK Simmons yelling. Just remembering how thoroughly evil that character was reminds me how good an actor he is.

I will definitely see this one.

I just saw this today. I really, really liked it. Simmons gives a terrific performance. You don't have to like jazz or drums to enjoy this movie, but it's especially fun if you do.

There are some inaccuracies in terms of how drum- and music-related things are depicted, but I tend to let those slide, because you kind of have to when it comes to movies. Whenever you watch a movie about a subject you know a lot about, you notice the things that aren't quite right.

For instance, the pain threshold depicted when the guy is practicing uptempo playing (which they call 'double-time') is not how it really works, but to get the point across to a larger audience, I understand why it gets dramatized that way. They also distort the Jo Jones/Charlie Parker story.

I'm an avid chessplayer and they always get things wrong in movies, showing scenarios that never happen, but again, that's show biz.

There is a piano professor at a local University here that in infamous for making her students cry. I saw the movie with one of her former students, and she said something interesting about it... that that teacher was trying to ale great music through her students, but also that she cared more about the music than her students. It seemed to be that this same sentiment was implied in the movie.

I've been wanting to see this for a while. It got great reviews but did not play in any local theaters. Hopefully it will be out on DVD soon.

Pretty dumb movie. To say it's a stretch of the imagination is putting it lightly.
