"Steve Jobs" by Yojimbo

Charting the fall and rise of the computer industry maverick behind Apple's groundbreaking and ubiquitous products, Steve Jobs is a warts and all portrait of the man. For the opening act, writer Aaron Sorkin does not pull his punches showing Jobs as an obsessive, controlling douche bag with little thought to others; including his own 5 year old daughter. The film's attitude softens over its length however, portraying him as part flawed genius, part Machiavellian businessman and even hints that he may be on "the spectrum". I'm not overly familiar with the context of the story, having never owned or indeed had much interest in Apple and their products, but Sorkin's sparkling dialogue combined with some well observed characterisation and strong performances from its leads make for ...

Genie

Ich besitze ein Mobiltelefon für fünf Euro, im Spätkauf erworben. Bisher hat Steve Jobs also noch keinen Einfluss auf mein Leben ausgeübt. Wieviele Leute aber, mögen wohl direkt nach dem Abspann ihr iPhone heruasholen? Danny Boyles Film mit den Qualitäten eines Thrillers bietet den Hintergrund für die Entwicklung dreier Produkte Jobs (Michael Fassbender). Beginnend mit dem Ausraster seines Co-Founders, kurz bevor 1984 der Mackintosh das Licht der Welt erblickt. Durch den Umstand, dass Jobs dem Leben gegenüber abweisend reagierte, vor allem den Menschen, die ihm am nächsten standen, macht einen der faszinierenden Widersprüche dieses Biopics aus. Jobs übte vollkommene Kontrolle über seine Produkte aus (ob seine Console einen perfekten schwarzen Würfel darstellt), nicht in seinem Umfeld. Das...

Steve Jobs - Movie Review

So I've finally got a chance to watch "Steve Jobs" over the weekend and I thought it was pretty good. Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet both gave a terrific performance, as the chemistry between the two was convincing and enjoyable to watch. The writing and the directing is this movies biggest strength, because the movie is non-stop talking and that's what this movie really is, and I know this isn't going to be for everyone, but for me, I was engaged all the way through and I honestly can't recall being bored while watching the movie. My biggest praise that I have for this movie has to go to Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin, because filming and writing a movie like this isn't easy (trust me).

The problems I have for the movie are very small and many people wouldn't be bothered...

Man Behind the Machine

'Steve Jobs' is the latest (and greatest) biopic of the man behind Apple's success. This film does nothing to glorify the man's achievements. It's a complete character study that lays bare the complexities of his working/personal relationships brought on by his counteractive personality. He's a harsh career minded individual, but he's never made out to be a villain. We gain much insight into these characters. The three act structure is, essentially, three big scenes that cover three significant periods in Job's career that also coincide with his personal life. This format still delivers a complete three act narrative, with a surprising subtle emotional through-line between Jobs and his daughter. It is set up and paid off in a way that adds a nice little bit of redemption in the fin...

Steve Jobs is engaging

Danny Boyle returns to make an engrossing biopic about Steve Jobs. Portrayed by Michael Fassbender, we see what kind of a man Steve Jobs was, and how much of a jerk he was. Michael Fassbender arguably gives the best performance of the year so far, as he transforms into this business man that tries his best to create a great computer. On topic, the rest of the cast was great too, each being invested in their roles, and with a great screenwriter like Andy Sorkin to boot. Because of these reasons, Steve Jobs is a very fascinating and enjoyable movie. It know when to be funny, and it knows when to be intense and serious. And it is intense! The movie is also separated into 3 parts of Steve Jobs' life, and I will say the last part is the least engaging, as it shows that it's basically fo...
