Reviews:
"Mitnick's screenplay has no shortage of incident. Both Edison and Westinghouse suffer great personal losses that impact their progress in different ways." - 09/10/2017 Hollywood Reporter


"THE CURRENT WAR tackles a fascinating pivot point in technological and commercial history: the late 19th century battle between Thomas Alva Edison and George Westinghouse to fully electrify the United States." - 09/10/2017 Variety


3 stars out of 5 - "Thankfully, Gomez-Rejon retains the visual panache he showed on ME AND EARL…, collaborating with Park Chan-wook’s cinematographer Chung-hoon Chung to apply a magic-realist tinge to this period piece." - 07/22/2019 Empire


"Gomez-Rejon’s film moves in spry, elegant fashion with some striking imagery and showy camera movements..." - 10/25/2019 RogerEbert.com
