Steve Jobs: Man in the Machine

  • Director: Alex Gibney
  • Genre(s): Documentary
  • Rating: Not Rated
  • Running Time: 128 min.

In his signature black turtleneck and blue jeans, shrouded in shadows below a milky apple, Steve Jobs’ image was ubiquitous. But who was the man on the stage? What accounted for the grief of so many across the world when he died? Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine is a critical examination of Jobs who was at once revered as an iconoclastic genius and a barbed-tongued tyrant. A candid look at Jobs’ legacy featuring interviews with a handful of those close to him at different stages in his life, the film is evocative and nuanced in capturing the essence of the Apple legend and his values which shape the culture of Silicon Valley to this day.

"Gibney dissects Jobs's image with the calm curiosity of a coroner."
- Amy Nicholson, Village Voice
"Brings home the complexities and contradictions of the man."
- Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"The accounting of his life story, as it unfolds in the film, is grounded in the brutal realities of corporate skulduggery. I’m a big fan of Balzac’s maxim that “behind every great fortune is a great crime,” and if nothing in Jobs’s history qualifies as a great crime, there is certainly a long trail of extreme misdeeds."
- Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Gibney uses interviews, fresh and archival, and a court deposition and reporters’ memories of long-exposure to Jobs for his evidence. And it’s damning, from the financial cheating to the lack of philanthropy to the arrogance that let him think he knew better than modern medicine how to treat his cancer."
- Roger Moore, Movie Nation
