I find "Whiplash" to be a great movie, literally a masterpiece, but here's what I want to ask.
I'm coding and writing articles for a living, and in 95% percents of cases when I see programmers or journalists in movies, especially surprisingly in movies dedicated to programmers or journalists, I see a lot of inconsistencies. Like, you know, journalist does not work that way, programmers can not hack alien software and so on and so on. I guess the same holds true about police movies, spy movies etc, which actually does not mean anything, because authenticity is by no means the main metrics we should measure movies with, but nevertheless:
the question is, does "Whiplash" sound false for professional musicians? Has there been any commentary on the authenticity of the movie in its depiction of professional musicians and their ways of working?
