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.
Early in the film, Andrew listens to a CD of Buddy Rich. Buddy Rich was a drummer infamous for his short temper, and he would regularly berate and verbally abuse his band mates for what he considered inferior musicianship; this foreshadows Fletcher's abusive ... ...
For the record, Metz wasn't out of tune. You were, Erickson, but he didn't know and that's bad enough.
In the opening scene when Andrew is playing the drums there is a long tracking shot up the hallway towards the large doorway, however when Fletcher is shown standing at the door in the next shot one of the doors is closed.
