Whiplash is jam-packed with high notes and drumroll-worthy moments, but Miles Teller has a favorite scene: “When J.K. Simmons slaps me in the face, because he hits like a girl!” he joked to The Hollywood Reporter on Sunday night at its New York Film Festival premiere. The particular moment, which has the arts professor testing the aspiring jazz drummer’s abilities with tempo, is the audience’s first introduction to the extent of Simmons’ berating in the band room. It wasn’t an emotional stretch for Simmons, who joked on the red carpet that he got so angry after “just driving to work and bottling up the road rage in L.A.”

With Sony Pictures Classics co-presidents Michael Barker and Tom Bernard in attendance, Chazelle introduced the film alongside producers Jason Blum, Helen Estabrook, Couper Samuelson, David Lancaster, Nicholas Britell and composer Justin Hurwitz. After a standing ovation from the audience inside Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, Chazelle, Teller and Simmons elaborated on the 19-day shoot during a post-screening Q&A (with Ethan Hawke stopping in for a listen).

Repeating some of his explanations from his chat with the press, the writer-director first recounted how the film was inspired by his high-school jazz band experience. “It was my life for a few years and I still have nightmares about it,” he laughed, recalling with a bit of a bias, “conductors tend to have a special thing against drummers because it seems to be less demanding than instruments that actually play notes, and everyone thinks they can do it. … And yet, the entire band falls apart without one, and a bad drummer sticks out like a sore thumb.”
