The Current War

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, USA, 2019o

s
vBack

Famous inventor Thomas Edison seems on the verge of bringing electricity to Manhattan with his radical new direct current technology. But his plans are upended by charismatic businessman George Westinghouse, who believes he and his partner, upstart genius Nikola Tesla, have a superior idea for how to rapidly electrify America: with alternating current. As Edison and Westinghouse grapple for who will power the nation, they spark one of the first and greatest corporate feuds in American history.

Regisseur Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) inszeniert diese bestimmende Episode am Beginn des elektrischen Zeitalters in atem­beraubendem Tempo. Dazu liefert ihm der südkoreanische Kameramann Chung-hoon Chung (Oldboy) fantastische Bilder. Unglaublich dynamisch und voller Energie ist das.
