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.

Lacks direction and purpose
7 September 2015 | by garlandsmithSee all my reviews

This film was a rather bizarre affair.

It starts as a love letter to Steve Jobs. A tribute even. Then you realise that you're actually watching the history of Apple and this is not a Steve Jobs biography (which is what I expected).

However, then, you realise it's actually a hate letter to the whole of Apple. You spend quite a long time hearing about Foxconn which is the Chinese company that produces most of Apple's products and you're not exactly sure why and how it fits in (it doesn't).

Then follows some more personal attacks on Jobs including, people who make indirect accusations and who imply negative facts without actually explaining why they say what it is they are saying on film.

The film lacks direction and purpose. It is a waste of time (unjustifiably too long), money and effort (on the part of the audience).
