Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Gibney, a prolific documentarian, not only charts Mr. Jobs's extraordinary record of marketing and innovation, but also presents a merciless anatomy of a complicated public character.
Fresh: Gibney's built a powerful and compelling case-even if much of the ground he covers won't be news to anyone who follows Apple.
Fresh: Gibney is certainly good at what he does, and "Steve Jobs" is at its best in providing a brisk summation of the man's life. Or, more accurately, lives, for Jobs seemed to have been more people than one would have thought possible.
Rotten: Despite the movie's journalistic substance, the pleasure-free banality of its style gets in the way of a view of Jobs himself, whose work is as much aesthetic as it is industrial.
This may be the best movie we ever get about the subject of Steve Jobs. Both Jobs’s genius and his dark side are depicted with vivid insight and nuance. You may never look at that iPhone in your hand the same way again. You truly will think different."
Probing and insightful
Gibney does for Jobs here what he did for Scientology with Going Clear. Really terrific.
I was completely drawn into this amazing biography - Alex Gibney has really uncovered a lot of juicy information about Jobs that I didn't know about before. Watch it with a date!
