Goofs

Job's secretary is referring to Stravinsky's "The rite of the spring" saying that the first representation was a failure and that only few records were sold. The rite of the Spring was represented in Paris for the first time in 1903, but the first recording was issued only in 1929. See more »

Maybe more truthful but didn't engage me
29 December 2015 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film tells the story of Steve Jobs developing products for Apple Computers, then his subsequent venture outside Apple then back again as the Apple CEO.

This version of the Steve Jobs rise and fall story may be more truthful than the other film "Jobs", but it does not engage me because I find it full of negative energy. People are bickering all the time, with lots of fights and nasty comments are thrown at each other. Steve is portrayed to be an utterly horrible person, yet there are occasional scenes that are discordant, creating a lack of continuity with the character's personality. The ending seems like a desperate attempt to put some positivity back in, but it just doesn't work for me.
