    Danny Boyle decides to take acid and working together with beautiful cinematography and production design decides to play with our brains. Rosario Dawson is a hypnotist, but so is Boyle. Halfway through the movie I no longer knew what was real or not. By the way, with 10 minutes there is already a plot twist involving McAvoy's motivations that takes everyone by surprise.

    As not a big fan of biographies, I appreciate the way this movie was structured around 3 big moments in Jobs's life and not a birth-to-death story. Of all acts, the first is certainly the best. The way Sorkin's acid script and Boyle's energetic direction following the characters as they walk and talk are enough to capture the viewer's attention. As time goes on, it gets a little tiring, especially for its technicality, but Fassbender's explosive moments can capture our attention again.

I would like to lose my memory to see this movie again with the sensation of a first time experience.

    Edgar Wright is the king of sound mixing and editing, the way he does the foreshadowing of the zombie apocalypse in the early minutes of the movie is something that should be used in film schools. As a clearly comedy film, the director also have merits by creating jumpscares in banal moments that really scares, in a clear irony to the genre. For you to find this movie a work of art you have to embrace its idiocy, that is…
