On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:
Our panel takes a look at another Best Picture candidate, Whiplash. Starring Miles Teller and JK Simmons, Whiplash explores themes of perfection and achievement in an incredibly intense and jazzy way. While the performances, especially of JK Simmons, are incredible, there are also a lot of parallels we can pull out about how society views and defines success and what is acceptable to sacrifice on the way to perfection.
