Were any jazz musicians actually this crazy?
>>

Yes. The film is entirely about wanting to achieve that level of greatness and the pain and sacrifice involved in getting there on the part of the musician and on the part of a conductor/tutor willing to be the monster that pushes them there.

Fucking fantastic film, Teller's drumming skill is a wonder to behold. Also, scarily, the film is kind of held together by car-crashes. Teller was in a severe car-crash about 8 years ago (which is why he has all the facial scars), the director was in a car-crash during shooting and there's a car-crash as a pivotal scene in the film.

The guy who invented jazz was a schizophrenic and died in a mental hospital

There are plenty of crazy musicians in general.

They should make a movie about the making of TMR. That would be cool.

Off yourself.

practicing a lot doesn't guarantee anything
buddy rich himself allegedly didn't even practice that much outside of performance
even at the end of the movie he's still just an extremely skilled drummer who plays other peoples music, not a genius or "one of the greats" or anything like that
>>
>>54054363
that's the point of the end

that after all that effort, only fletcher smiled at him, and all the crowd probably thought he was irregular as fuck , so his career died before starting
>>
>>54054378
that's a pretty big stretch m8, but then again there a million valid interpretations of that scene
>>
>>54054403
yeah, sure, but it's not a happy ending whatever thing you say

he has no friends, no stable job, no gf, and all he accomplished was being approved by a guy that only made one succesful music in his entire career

is TMR supposed to be Jack white's record label?
