Mentor-driven stories

Sometimes the entire story can revolve around the influence of the mentor. Whiplash (2014), one of the best films I have ever seen, is one such story.

Fletcher, the relentless and abusive music teacher, is the epicentre of influence in the film. His student, Andrew (the protagonist) is completely affected by everything Fletcher does. The result is an intense struggle from Andrew to prove his worth to Fletcher.
