Storyline

In his signature black turtleneck and blue jeans, shrouded in shadows below a milky apple, Steve Jobs' image was ubiquitous. But who was the man on the stage? What accounted for the grief of so many across the world when he died? From Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney, 'Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine' is a critical examination of Jobs who was at once revered as an iconoclastic genius and a barbed-tongued tyrant. A candid look at Jobs' legacy featuring interviews with a handful of those close to him at different stages in his life, the film is evocative and nuanced in capturing the essence of the Apple legend and his values which shape the culture of Silicon Valley to this day.

Jobs is a bundle of personal, public and work life contradictions
11 September 2015 | by ccorral419See all my reviews

Film Review: Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine. Academy Award Winning Director Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side - 2008) loves his "behind the scenes" look at people and events (Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief - 2015). So, it 's no surprise he's ready and able to take on Steve Jobs. This look at Apple/Jobs moving quickly pass the start up years of Apple, and focuses primarily on Jobs' work ethics (and/or lack there of). Through select interviews and replaying of testimony, the viewer is provided a unique look into Jobs' personal, public and work life persona - all showing a bundle contradictions. However, be this information new or old to the viewer, there is no question the Man behind the Machine (Apple) produced one of today's most innovative products.
