Finally got around to this one over the weekend. Classic Sorkin, so if you like him, you'll like this. He's always about the snappy, frenetic, super-intelligent dialog, and in the scenes between Elba and Chastain he's got it cranked up way past the level of "The Philadelphia Story". I loved it but thought the pace could be turned down just a notch, so we can absorb and appreciate it a little more. Sorkin directs and edits like he writes; snappy, abrupt. I liked how at appropriate points in the plot he loops back in flashbacks to the Inciting Moment. And it's no stretch to peer into the lines of dialog and see occasional self-referential material related to Sorkin's own career ups and downs, and how he sees himself at various less-proud stages of his life. So I can see what attracted him to telling this story, his way.

Worth a watch, when you're looking for a non-romcom movie that's not full of explosions and robots.
