Danny Boyle’s “Steve Jobs” movie has been the toast of Telluride over the Labor Day weekend with rave reviews coming out about the film, especially for Michael Fassbender’s performance in the role and Aaron Sorkin’s scripting.
Many of the reviews though readily admit it’s Boyle and Sorkin just running with a wild idea, Jobs himself sound like he’s portrayed as almost a monster who can’t separate his “visionary” outlook from his abusive bullying of his underlings.
One person in the audience was that of Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple who is portrayed by Seth Rogen in the film. He has no issues with the portrayal it seems, telling Deadline:
“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.”
Wozniak was reportedly not a fan of the Ashton Kutcher “Jobs” film a few years ago, so he’s under no obligation to praise anything related to his former partner.
