First Trailer for 'Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine' Documentary
"He was not that much fun most of the time…" Up next from Alex Gibney is a documentary about Steve Jobs. Not to be confused with the "fictional" film titled Steve Jobs, directed by Danny Boyle and starring Michael Fassbender, this is a documentary about Jobs' private and personal life as a technology innovator. Gibney's documentary Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine examines in more depth the "who he was" angle. Gibney has been on a roll with docs recently, churning out multiple in-depth features every year, this being another to following Going Clear. I'm looking forward to seeing what Gibney has dug up for this doc.
Here's the official trailer for Alex Gibney's doc Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine, from Mashable:
A look at the personal and private life of the late Apple CEO, Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine is directed by documentarian Alex Gibney, of Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, The Armstrong Lie, and We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks most recently. Alex Gibney explains his interest in Steve Jobs to Variety: "After the Walter Isaacson book and so many other films, I didn’t really want to do a paint-by-the-numbers bio. I was interested in his values, the idea that when he died, there was a huge global outpouring of grief. People were weeping. I wanted to do a thing about Jobs, but I also wanted it to be about us. I set out to do an impressionistic film, structured in a way like Citizen Kane." This doc first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival and will be released in theaters starting on September 4th this fall.

No one wanted to speak ill of the dead, but every one knew Jobs was a dick head.

How many Movies and documentaries does this guy need? He was super smart and an ass. There saved you some time.

Alright already, people think Jobs is an asshole... He still deserves as many documentaries and movies people want to make about him. Really take a moment to think about how much of the world has changed because of Apple, Microsoft, and personal computing in general. Jobs played a major part. Gates will get his time in the limelight once he dies too.

Wow. He really did kinda look like Ashton Kutcher in his younger years. Weird. And while I'm not rushing out to see yet another Steve Jobs movie, I am glad for one that at least presents an objective view of the man and not a worshiper's view of the legend. It's easy to call a "brilliant asshole" brilliant, but it's important to also remember the "brilliant asshole" was an asshole.
