My score to this movie is 8.
I have to say first, that the acting, music and lighting and cinematography was amazing.
Especially JK Simmons, whom acting just blew my mind.
I also really enjoyed the plot and how it captured the relationship between student and a highly strict teacher.
If I were in Andrew’s shoes, I would have sued Terence Fletcher too.
His behavior was not good at all, he put his students in a lot of pressure. I think that teachers should be honest and give honest feedbacks to their students and if they should do more effort and work, they should give them advice, not throw a chair at them or slap them or yell at them. It’s obvious that this kind of behavior only makes students more stressed out and in a long term can cause depression and anxiety.
Overall I believe that as a teacher, yelling at one student and criticizing them badly in front of other students, is not gonna help them to make progress, it gonna make them angry and fill them with shame and hate.
