Driven by Sorkin’s articulate, rapid-fire dialogue, Boyle's restless, innovative direction, and a focused, intense performance from Michael Fassbender, Steve Jobs is a film in perpetual motion, one that immediately grabs your attention with it’s urgency, and provides an illuminating look at one of the most influential figures in recent history. It's also a damn entertaining movie to boot.
The film is primary about the 3 major events in Jobs life the conversations that go on within them are essentially the same with Winslet chasing Fassbender around that he has to go on stage. I wanted to know more about the man who made Apple what it is and that was sadly lacking with emotional overloading. The performances are fine but I found the film dull with this being Boyle's weakest film I've seen him direct.
A great little film. Boyle may not be transcendent but he's a solid director with a handful of great great films and one masterpiece. He's batting a high percentage and this one is a really good one. Love the structure. Really worked. Great writing as sorkin is subdued but still gets in some lovely lil walk and talks. Winslet is great. Fassbender is good but accent is grating at times
