Steve Jobs is a grand skill of filmmaking; the acting, directing and writing all hit perfection. Bravo Danny Boyle.
Steve Jobs is one the best film of 2015, hands down. Michael Fassbender tears through Jobs' inner core, with the help of his superb teammates consisting of Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Michael Stuhlbarg and Jeff Daniels. Director Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire and Trainspotting) delivers a complex and stylish viewpoint of Jobs' life.
Fassbender unveils Jobs' infuriating and visionary mind from behind the curtain. This film is a high wire act based on a fascinating study of a flawed man with a dream. It’s a groundbreaking character study for filmmaking; you’re in for a real treat. Set backstage at three iconic product launches (1984, 1988 and 1998), Jobs takes us behind the curtain of the digital revolution to paint viewers a portrait of the brilliant mind at its epicenter.
Boyle leads the way with his craftsmanship and guides the audience on a speechifying roller coaster. The first act is shot in low-res 16mm film, where Jobs unveils the Macintosh to the world. After being axed by Apple, the second act is shot on glorious 35mm film, where Jobs presents NeXT cube at the beautiful San Francisco Opera House. Finally for the third act, Jobs returns to Apple and shows off the iMac in high-def digital.
Framed by whirling innovation and glorious cinematography (Alwin H. Küchler, Sunshine), Steve Jobs will send film lovers in a daze. The script, by Aaron Sorkin, an Oscar winner for The Social Network, is nothing short of perfection. Sorkin is Boyle’s main man, as he delivers brilliant script of an infuriating visionary. Yes, Steve Jobs will make you question certain topics as it exposes the cores and strands of humanity.
This sleek movie is a stand-alone film that ended with a blazing display of bravura. It receives the highest of highs … five out of five stars and is one of the best films of the 2015. Boyle’s film is go-to Oscar bait for this upcoming season. Go see this intellectually savvy movie, now. Steve Jobs is iNcredible.
