No Spoiler Review
Highlighting some of the most prominent times in the life of the former Apple CEO, Steve Jobs. Starring Michael Fassbender as Jobs, this eponymous film is a behind the scenes take on he started, lost, and regained one the most iconic companies of all time.
Directed by Danny Boyle, Steve Jobs, gathers a stellar cast that all deliver in their part to make for a very watchable and informative piece. Jeff Daniels, Seth Rogen and Kate Winslet, all add there considerable acting talents, with Rogen and Daniels laying aside their more familiar comedic roots to portray characters who during the film with be both friend and foe to Jobs, as he see it.
This is a Biopic, not the whole story, but snippets of what was a life that was truly lived at break-neck speed. Boyle takes on a difficult thing to do, tell the story of a man who everyone in the developed World will have heard of, and will probably have some sort of opinion on. I think by chosing some of the pivotal moments in the life of both Jobs and Apple, Boyle gives an insight in to what made Jobs the man he was and what drove him to treat people the way he did. Watching him belittle his closest allies, is quite something, but looking deeper you understand that he seems to do this because they are the ones who truly understand why he is doing it and the ends that these points in time will achieve.
I've found it to be one of those of films that will make me do a little bit more research in to a man, ideas and, ultimately, products, have touched millions around the World.
