The new biopic "Jobs" is a solidly informative and entertaining "Brief History of Apple," as seen through the eyes of its co-founding genius. We experience 30 years of Steve Jobs' mercurial life and times, with plenty of tastes -- but only tastes -- of triumph plus a few dashes of comeuppance.
Arrogant, selfish, obsessive, an idealistic, perfectionist credit-hog who rolled over friends, adversaries, colleagues and lovers with a single-mindedness that fit his lurching, simian gait -- the movie about him only has time to hint at what made the man tick and can only touch on Steve's greatest hits and shortcomings.
It's superficial, but that plays into the hands of the film's star, Ashton Kutcher. He may be a screen lightweight, but the impersonation, starting with that famous walk, the famous explosions of temper, and the hissing, spitting, insulting take-downs the man was famous for, are spot on.
