Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs movie directed by Danny Boyle debuted at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado overnight and the first reviews are in including one from Steve Wozniak!
Deadline caught up with Wozniak and asked him for his thoughts on the movie:
“I saw a rough cut and I felt like I was actually watching Steve Jobs and the others (including Rogen’s dead-on portrayal of Wozniak), not actors playing them, I give full credit to Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin for getting it so right"
"With ‘Steve Jobs,’ Fassbender Shoots to the Top of This Year’s Best Actor Oscar Race"
The Hollywood Reporter said:
"How do you get to the bottom of a character like Steve Jobs, a figure so towering and complex that he could arguably serve as the basis of a film as ambitious as Citizen Kane? If you’re a dramatist with the character insight and verbal dexterity of Aaron Sorkin, you make him the vortex of a swirling human hurricane, the puppetmaster who kept all around him on strings, the impresario of a circus dedicated to the creation and dramatic unveiling of technological wonders that changed the world. Racing in high gear from start to finish, Danny Boyle’s electric direction tempermentally complements Sorkin’s highly theatrical three-act study, which might one day be fascinating to experience in a staged setting."
"Steve Jobs is another crackling Aaron Sorkin script, complete with walk and talks. Instead of applying this banter to a linear series of events (or a direct adaptation of the Walter Isaacson biography), Sorkin structured the film in three major sequences that encapsulate the entirety of the man. It’s extraordinary, and Danny Boyle directs the hell out of it too."
Rotten Tomatoes has 5 reviews up already and is giving it 100%. I can't wait to see this!
