    I thought I've been doing pretty well at not crying at films recently. The last time was actually when I saw this in the cinema.

    I am stunned. Literally. 'Steve Jobs' is utterly incredible. The performances of the stellar cast are undeniably amazing. Fassbender, of course, is Oscar-worthy. He deserves to be remembered for this performance for years to come. I didn't even recognise Kate Winslet; she encapsulates her character so perfectly. Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels both give brilliant performances, as does the supporting cast.

    What a wonderful masterpiece of filmmaking.
