Review: Steve Jobs, 2015, dir. Danny Boyle

240506

“And now, for your edutainment: 2015’s second movie about Apple visionary and all-around jerk, Steve Jobs, creatively titled Steve Jobs for sake of ease. The film marks Danny Boyle as the second person in 2015 to attempt at parsing out the many faces of the late Jobs, or maybe the third. Boyle has the director’s credit, but the heart driving the production is clearly that of screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. Sorkin’s stamp shapes the narrative here so much, in fact, that callingSteve Jobs a collaborative effort feels like a condescending pat on the head to Boyle, whom Sorkin appears to have teamed up with just so he can drive in the carpool lane. It’s a Boyle film where Boyle struggles to be relevant and fails.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
