Biography, Drama
Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs is much more like a play than a movie. And this, above all, is why it is disappointing. It's so easy to see that the screen has been limited to the conventions of a stage, with claustrophobic results. As a consequence, Steve Jobs has no cinematic moments, no movie magic. Instead, the work is dominated by Aaron Sorkin's script, which is packed with punchy lines. Jobs is very talky. No one ever shuts up and provides a space with much-needed silence. This kind of overwriting is great for the actors. Which is why Michael Fassbender does an excellent job of playing Sorkin's Steve Jobs. The script gives him lots of material to show his chops. But a real film does not need so much acting. Fassbender is never given time to stop, sink into his character, and find that something that makes Jobs worth examining to begin with (122 min.).
