I love Aaron Sorkin’s script for Steve Jobs. I love Michael Fassbender’s performance as the messiah of Apple. I don’t mind that it’s mostly fictitious because it simultaneously doesn’t matter and is kinda the point. I find Danny Boyle’s direction solid, if not perfect. I can’t wait to see it again.
That’s my streamlined, closed system review of Steve Jobs. It’s a stylised, simply presented, brand-managed, user-friendly assessment of the Boyle-Sorkin-Fassbender team-up that would no doubt make its subject (or at least the movie version of him) smile in self-involved glee.
