Whiplash

Whiplash (2014)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning where Fletcher observes Andrew drumming for the first time, Fletcher hangs his jacket on a hook. A few seconds later after Andrew notices he's gone, there's no jacket hanging there. Shortly after that we hear the door open and it's reappeared.

Other mistake: In the final scene both at the start when Fletcher is walking on stage and in a shot during "Caravan," just after Andrew mouths FU, when Fletcher puts a hand under his jacket the shot goes forward and then immediately shows the same footage in reverse.

Continuity mistake: In the last scene, when the drummer starts the "caravan" song, the bass player on the left starts playing. But in the next shot he isn't.

Question: Is it normal to bleed when playing drums?

raph

Chosen answer: No, it is not normal to bleed while playing drums, as callouses develop on a drummer's hands through constant practising and playing. But, if a drummer plays hard enough and fast enough using the same drum sticks, friction between wood and skin can develop and rupture toughened skin. In the context of the film, the drummer is being pushed beyond his limits by the music conductor. Additionally, he is pushing himself to be better, so the bleeding is a consequence of that drive for excellence.

Question: I may have missed something. If JK Simmons was fired, how could he conduct the band at the end?

raph

Chosen answer: He was fired from the university, but the band at the end was a hobby group he had started conducting for.
