About the Movie
"Welcome to Macintosh" is the first documentary of its kind to mix history, criticism and an unapologetic revelry of all things Apple into a movie experience. The film explores the early years of Apple, the many challenges Apple has faced, and what the future may hold for the company and it's products. Ex-Apple employees, engineers and community members offer insight on the company's innovations, failures, cultural impact and what the future may be like beyond the reign of its co-founder Steve Jobs. Interviews include notable Apple personalities Andy Hertzfeld, co-creator of the original Macintosh, Guy Kawasaki, long time Mac evangelist, Leander Kahney, author of the book "Cult of Mac", Jim Reekes, creator of the Macintosh start-up sound and Ron Wayne, original co-founder of the Apple Computer Company.

The movie is flatter than a MacBook Air
This movie just didn't come close to revealing the keys that have made Mac and Apple the rabid cult of which I'm an avid member. I was left feeling flat having listened to peripheral Mac people ramble on about peripheral Mac issues, but the movie didn't even come close to what stirs such passionate allegiance to shiny chunks of metal. I was glad it ended after just over an hour because it became obvious quickly that there would be no revelations or inside tracks revealed.
I didn't find this film very insightful, but the scenes with jim Reekes (creator of the Mac startup sound) are incredibly funny. He's the real life Dwight Schrute.
