Re: “Whiplash

I don't think this movie "is a valentine to an abusive relationship." I interpreted the movie with Andrew as the protagonist, and Fletcher as the antagonist. Andrew's goal for the entire movie was to earn Fletcher's approval. He did indeed do that at the end of the movie, so, for all intents and purposes, the villain won. Andrew did become a better drummer, but did he become a better person? I would say no, because he became arrogant and selfish (he left his girlfriend to further his drumming). The relationship was abusive, and Fletcher was manipulative and vindictive. Nevertheless, Andrew worked to win his approval. I believe the film leaves it up to interpretation whether his experience with Fletcher made him a better person. I say no.
