Review: Trainspotting – Citizens Theatre, Glasgow

First published in The Times, Thursday September 22 2016

Three Stars

It is now 20 years since Danny Boyle’s film version of Trainspotting burst onto cinema screens, and it is fascinating to note the degree to which its structure and imagery have almost supplanted Irvine Welsh’s nonlinear source novel and the 1994 stage adaptation by Harry Gibson. 396 more words

Steve Jobs - a belated Film Review

This one, again, we had to wait until it showed up on satellite to see.  It’s not a movie we could take the boy to, and when someone does offer to watch the lad, we always go for something far more obviously vile and depraved to celebrate.   644 more words

Steve Jobs (2015) Film Review by Gareth Rhodes

Steve Jobs (2015) Directed by Danny Boyle. With Michael Fassbender, Kate WInslet, Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels. 

Danny Boyle’s take on Steve Jobs is an artfully constructed piece that showcases the visionary behind Apple inc as a flawed human being, as he attempts to change the world with his revolutionary ideas for home computing and beyond. 398 more words
