'Good face-off! I really like how you describe the films in the intro, as well. I didn't see all of Whiplash so I'll have to do that for many reasons, including voting on this.

May I suggest one edit?

Oh, can you also edit the title just a bit so it adheres to IMDb's preference for film titles in single quote marks?

Thank you so much Ruby as always for the suggestions! I make plenty of grammar mistakes as English is not my first language. Thanks for correcting from time to time and help me improve!

It's always amazing to me how well some people, whose first language is not English, can speak and write in English, as it is a ridiculously confusing language with more exceptions to rules than rules. You are one of those people who I admire so much for how adroitly you write in English. Thank goodness that very few people have ever had to hear me try to speak the few other languages that I've tried to learn - it's embarrassing how badly I handle other languages. :-) You have my admiration, and quite frankly, awe. If only more of my American-born students could write as well as my friends on this site -- ah, my life would be so much easier, lol.

Come on, people!  Are y'all blind?  Couldn't you all see that "Black Swan" had something that "Whiplash" didn't have:  two women making out with each other?  I mean, wouldn't any of you buy a ticket at a theater or order P.P.V. to watch that?
