Steve Jobs Summary
Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.
As original and risk-taking as its subject, "Steve Jobs" will make you think differently about an American icon.
A redemptive fable at once artful, elegant, and clean. But by stripping out any and all complications, the movie denies itself the opportunity for nuance and puts a ceiling on its own ambition.
Thanks to Fassbender's revelatory performance, Jobs comes across as a captivating monster, a dictator in a black turtleneck who is impossible to ignore.
It entertains and enlightens, and it's bang on in showing how great ideas are born not through compromise but through vision and determination.
The acting is unarguably, uniformly strong.
