Steve Jobs (2015)

US 122m, Colour
Director: Danny Boyle; Cast: Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels

stevejobsNamed after the co-founder of Apple Computers, the biopic Steve Jobs is the story, in three parts, of an unlikable uncaring “visionary” who attempts to rebuild both his company and the relationship with his daughter. A rather ordinary and uneventful drama, the film succeeds in illustrating the complexity of Jobs’ flawed character, but does little to reveal anything about him that was not already known (Klaus Ming January 2016).

    My reaction to this movie (which I have not seen) was pretty much the same as The Social Network. Why would I want to see a movie about this guy?

    (I confess I have imagined a series of biopics about Tim Berners-Lee, who invented the World Wide Web, Linus Torvalds, who created Linux, and Rasmus Lerdorf, who created the programming language PHP, plus the team who developed the internet to begin with, and so on. But, you know, Hollywood. 🙂 )

      Heh, Heh, yeah, i know what you mean. I couldn’t have cared less about the Social Network, and was only marginally more interested in Steve Jobs. I guess Bill Gates is up next – that ought to be a snooze-fest.
