Even though I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, I could plainly tell that the Steve Jobs in this movie was more of a caricature. It didn't seem believable to me that the real Steve Jobs would have been this one dimensional. But yet, Aaron Sorkin did such a great job depicting the sense of struggle and conflict that we imagine Steve must have endured. He told a great story, even if it may not have been very accurate.
The experience got me to thinking about how the real genius of Aaron Sorkin should be channeled. Aaron's immense talent is going to waste on biographies that simply anger the masses. This man's genius needs to be focused on the biggest first-world problem know to man ... movie trailers need to stop ruining our movies
The world is blessed with a screenwriter like Aaron who has the gift of painting incredibly vivid pictures that convey deep emotion and yet don't accurately portray the real thing. This guy needs to write movie trailers! That way movie makers can still get their audience worked up into a frenzy of desire but yet when the people walk into the movie everything is a surprise because the trailer only vaguely resembles what's in the movie. The trailer would simply try to capture the energy and emotion of the movie but would have different actors and create scenes that aren't even in the movie. Sorkin movie trailers would no longer use actual movie footage. Everyone's happy! Problem solved.
If the movie trailer problem was to go away forever then even the die-hard Steve Jobs fans would have to admit that this movie was a small price to pay for it.
