R | | Drama, Music
A promising young drummer enrolls at a cut-throat music conservatory where his dreams of greatness are mentored by an instructor who will stop at nothing to realize a student's potential.
Throughout the film, the cymbals on the different drum kits are Bosphorus-cymbals, except for the last scene where the ones on the kit are made by a company called Istanbul Agop Cymbals.
Motherfucker! Connelly, get your ass back on the kit.
When Fletcher drops in and asks the trumpets to play individually in the first rehearsal, the second player is supposed to make a mistake and does so, and sounds very bad. But anyone capable of playing in that band could never have sounded so bad; it was obviously an over-done mistake by someone who doesn't know anything about trumpet playing.
