Just saw two achievement-centered movies. In THE WALK, Philippe Pettit overcomes huge obstacles to get a wire strung from one Twin Tower to the other to walk, nail-skewered foot and all, across, and then some. While I watched I had some Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon, toasting the Frenchman Joseph Gordon-Levitt played.
The other movie, WHIPLASH, featured JK Simmons in his Oscar-winning performance as a controlling, monomaniacal music conductor.
Both movies were entertaining, but WHIPLASH was painful to watch.
