Critic Reviews for The Current War: Director's Cut
It's a dizzying menu, aimed at eliminating any hint of fustiness and show that this is a story as modern as the rivalry between Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. And I suppose it is. But it's also absorbing enough not to need any artificial means of support.
Ultimately, the film sheds light on a fascinating episode in American history; it falls short, however, of being really electric.
What I think really makes this film special is that it gives more of a role to Michael Shannon as George Westinghouse and talking about the financial risks that both of these men were taking. It kind of sets up the world we see today.
A movie about its making would be compelling, dynamic and a livewire rush. The thing itself is a dead end.
The Current War: The Director's Cut is visually lucid but thematically scattershot.
