STEVEN JOBS (2015)
A film by Danny Boyle
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen
Of course Apple is not supporting the film, I am not surprised there. The movie is divided into three sections, each involving the lead up to product launches ending in 1998 hosted by Jobs.
We see him over a period of 16 years as we watch the film you get to see this great business man who is not an engineer to say the least but who wanted to be #1 at any cost. Of course he wanted to make the best product out there. He was difficult to work with I have read an article back in the day when he was fired and later after being fired Georges Lucas has this company called Pixar sold it to Jobs which turn it around to the best animation company that the US as aver seen. When they called him back to Apple he did not like it to him it was better to be at Pixar because it is fun over there. He pushed people to do their job better and to him nothing was impossible. There is Steve Wozniak (Seth Rogen) who co-founded Apple with Jobs, Apple CEO John Sculley (Jeff Daniels) who gets at what really drives Jobs in his life, Andy Hertzfeld (Michael Stuhlbarg) who was a member of the original team that put together the Macintosh computer, GQ journalist Joel Pforzheimer (John Ortiz) who is always hoping for an exclusive from Jobs, marketing executive Joanna Hoffman (Kate Winslet) who is Jobs best friend, and ex-girlfriend Chrisann Brennan (Katherine Waterston) who is mother to a daughter that he does not believe that is his daughter.
Danny Boyle has done like a film documentation about the technology and where is it going. Plus the dialogue are out standing here. Especially with Fassbender and Winslet who delivers their roles near perfection. You have to understand jobs was tough he wanted to be the first to invent it and #1, and he succeeded before he died. Also they were the first to invent the laptop, the iPod, iPad, and iPhone, which put Apple to be the top company in the US. The film avoid the clichés here as far as I can see. It is moving with great electrifying dialogue with never a dull moment. No wonder it has several Oscar nomination. And yes I am one of those who owns an Apple computer, iPhone, and iPad.
