Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine
Sep 04 - Sep 10, 2015
(Alex Gibney, United States, DCP, 2015, 127 min)
Quick on the heels of his successful documentary on the inner workings of the Church of Scientology, Alex Gibney turns on one of the most well-known minds of our time with Steve Jobs: the Man in the Machine, acting as an insight into the true nature of what it meant to be the visionary behind Apple’s successes. Delivering a scathing review of Jobs’ victories as well as his failures, Gibney examines everything from the character of the early computing scene to the deeply personal connection Apple consumers seemed to feel for Jobs, even after his death in 2011. Through interviews with colleagues, family, and consumers, The Man in the Machine illustrates just how much influence one mind can have on an entire generation.
