Hooooly shit okay, There were 2 moments in this movie that made me have to pause and step away for a bit because the anxiety of it all was overwhelming. When Andrew is hit by the truck, and then the beginning of the final performance. That final performance was absolutely stunning, seeing the sweat and blood bounce off the drum kit as Andrew played, the intensity creeping up and up and up was just masterfully done.

This movie felt intense throughout honestly, even during the few quiet moments, in large part thanks to J.K Simmons INCREDIBLE performance, along with the music, the camera work and the damn good pacing.
