Christian Bale's show
#FordvFerrari just kicked off #Telluride and is an expertly made crowd pleaser. Christian Bale is as excellent as always and it’s also a strong contender for sound and especially editing. pic.twitter.com/gH2PUpP97e

Powerhouse of talent
Ford V Ferrari is an exciting & entertaining film fueled by passion & friendship. A great ensemble cast lead by two powerhouse performances from Matt Damon & Christian Bale. James Mangold has made another winner. My only complaint is that it’s a bit slow at first. #FordVFerrari pic.twitter.com/PXdRPav1BM

It's long but entertaining
FORD v FERRARI is a solid, roaring, muscle fueled film from James Mangold about setting aside ego & pushing each other beyond our limits. Long but entertaining. Bale has the flashier role than Damon but both turn in strong work. #TellurideFilmFestival #TellurideNBP #FilmTwitter

Wondrously ... a new word for our dictionary
#FordvFerrari is big, wondrously loud (it’s car racing after all) and has a lovely friendship at its heart. So my reservations are vexing me. More soon. But, ah that #ChristianBale. Always engrossing, seldom if ever the same. #TellurideFilmFestival

Christian Bale... you beauty!

Now we are curious to know details about its sound
#FordvFerrari revs on all cylinders, with Christian Bale’s piston-pumping performance leading the film across the finish line. Editing, cinematography, and score are all top-notch achievements, but the sound work dominates the film. Could be a big contender below the line. #Tff46
