The Anatomy of the Obsessed Artist – Whiplash vs. Black Swan

Home / blog / The Anatomy of the Obsessed Artist – Whiplash vs. Black Swan

In another great video essay by Michael Tucker he takes a look at the similarities in the way two filmmakers approach the topic of the obsessed artist. While the two films tell completely different stories, they still have many similar beats and ideas in common. As filmmakers we can learn a lot from these two films and especially how the differences in the film express the resolution of the protagonist.
