Steve Jobs is written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle. It stars Micheal Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, and Michael Stuhlbarg.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 a portrait of the man, his estranged family and staff at its epicenter.I honestly can't start this review without saying this easily ties with my favorite movie of the year, The Gift, for quite a few reasons. Truth be told this movie has everything needed to build a <more>
classic and uses it remarkably.Writer Aaron Sorkin has quite a few gems in his filmography which include Money Ball, Social Network and A Few Good Men. He is as versatile as he is brutal in honesty. He works wonders in this movie revealing the man behind the machine rather than the machine behind the man. Without any scenes of failure or success, Sorkin forces his audience to understand the complex and often times revolting central Character. With extremely well written confrontations between Jobs and Wozniak or Jobs and his Daughter or even Jobs and his Boss, Sorkin relentlessly demonstrates the true nature behind the tech giant. Though this movie's central family tension and the Job vs. Apple drama are enthralling, Sorkin injects just enough dry and black comedy to keep the movie from becoming an influential figure's shaming. With that being said Sorkin also understands that the enormous ego of Steve Jobs had to be exposed as a vice and plays on that brutal fact perfectly. With 4 dimensional characters, great central dramas and pitch perfect comedy, this might actually be his best work yet.Accompanying the stellar writing was Danny Boyle's beautiful direction. Through seemingly unending shots and aggressive movements the audience genuinely feels like their in Job's presence which can be very hard to sit through at times but is ultimately rewarding experience. With visible passion from Boyle, this is one powerful ride.To my common readers I mentioned a few weeks back that Black Mass had the greatest ensemble cast of the year, I was wrong. This movies cast never really stops acting to the point of absolute realism. To start Kate Winslet portrayal of real life Johanna Hoffman was as beautiful as it was naive. She brought the character alive in full force and truly demonstrated she is one of the best actresses working. I smell a nomination coming her way. I had referenced Jeff Daniel's acting last week in The Martian, well he completely out did himself. He was tender at times and shark-like in others. He drew the line between intelligence and decency and walks this tight rope carefully. Five year old Mekenzie Moss also offers an absolutely astounding performance, uttering few but heart wrenching words. Michael Stuhlbarg works wonder as well on a albeit smaller degree. Now onto the two heavy hitters. A surprise to me and my theater alike, Seth Rogan gives the single best dramatic performance of his career. As Steve Wozniak, the literal opposite of Jobs, Rogan played the role with elegance and brilliance and I wouldn't even mind the Benicio snub if Rogen won the statue. The role demanded a sweet, naive, caring and ultimately explosive performance and Rogan more than delivered making the scenes of abrasion between him and Fassbender iconic. I have been holding off that name for the entire review because Micheal Fassbender is the only thing keeping this movie from failing. He dawns the character in such a way, I can only compare it to Jake Gyllenhaal from Night Crawler and even then I don't think I could fully describe it. Filled to the brim with nuance Fassbender offers a cold, intelligent, manipulative, calculating, and over all disturbingly realistic portrayal of Steve Jobs. I really can't envision a better cast lead than him. As calm as he is diabolical, Fassbender plays this egotistical narcissist with such precision its close to horrifying to watch. Though calm through most of the movie Fassbender understands when to unleash the monster which lays in Jobs and is absolutely volcanic while doing so. Under all the deception, tyranny, and technological brilliance lays a purely adroit and masterful performance. Though Johnny Depp in Black Mass was great and Ian McClellan in Mr. Holmes was grand, neither of them embodied their characters much like Micheal Fassbender and it would be a shame and a disservice to cinema if he didn't with Best Actor. He has proved he is one of the best actors of the generation.Steve Jobs was a privilege to see on the big screen and is so far tied with The Gift as my number one movie of the year. With Deft acting, exquisite direction, and powerful writing this movie is not far from a modern classic. Steve Jobs gets an A+.
this is a movie which particularly shows the true essence of Steve Job's life.It won't be wrong to say that this movie really shows that whatever Steve Job's invented and innovated were merely ideas that were copied by others.It shows how todays giants like MICROSOFT ,SONY,DELL,HP and many others are nothing else but cheaters and a mere fake, and though i was astonished to see all this i was even satisfied by how all this was proved by the filmmaker ,and ultimately thanks to Steve Job's for letting us know the truth before death..... therefore its a must watch for all those <more>
who really want to know that who should they be thankful to for using up all of the latest gadgets ,,lastly Id request the director to make more movies of this sort in the near future . moreover i was able to get the movie early due to some good source and of course money!
How Many Steve Jobs movies is too many? (by ccorral419)
How many Steve Jobs movies is too many? We may never know, as Director Danny Boyle Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours and Writer Arron Sorkin A Few Good Men, TV's- Newsroom come together to present a rapid paced behind the scenes look into the world of Steve Jobs, his personal relationships and demons, the history of Apple, and the launch of the iMac. Michael Fassbender doesn't start out a likely candidate to play Job's, however, his commitment to the character and later transformation is spot on. Kate Winslet is equally in her acting element, as Job's longtime assistance <more>
slight accent and all Joanna Hoffman. Rounding out the top billing is "it" man of the hour and consistently excellent Jeff Daniels as Apple's headman John Sculley, and Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak. This film succeeds due to the Boyle's directing and Sorkin's confrontational and intense dialogue that captures and draws the audience in. Actors Michael Stuhlbang Seven Psychopaths , Katherine Waterston Inherent Vice and the various youth actors portraying Jobs' daughter Lisa Perla Haney-19; Ripley Sobo-9;Makenzie Moss-5 are perfectly cast as thorns in Jobs' side. If enough movie goers see this film, Director Danny Boyle, and several of the aforementioned actors, will be recognized come Award season.
Film Different: A Cool Movie - Not meant to be a documentary (by calibanplayer)
This movie is a dramatization, based on stuff that really happened, and it is a really cool movie.No, this movie isn't meant to show history exactly as it happened. If you want to know all that read the book by Walter Isaacson. It's a great book.The script is pure Sorkin-Porn. Rapid-fire dialogue with 2 conversations going on at the same time. If you liked The West Wing or any of Aaron Sorkin's other movies, you'll feel at home with this one.They also get the small emotional moments right as well. Some of the best moments are between Steve and his daughter.The directing and <more>
editing is masterful. I liked the choice to shoot on different formats for the different years and the flashback scenes punctuate the drama on screen perfectly. All the actors do a fine job, especially Michael Stuhlbarg who plays Andy Hertzfeld.I hope when they release this movie on blu ray they include the video of the real Steve doing these product launches as bonus features.If you can get past the fact that this movie isn't a word for word recreation of history, you will enjoy it.
Steve Jobs At Different Times Of His Life (by Desertman84)
After watching the lackluster Ashton Kutcher film "Jobs" two years ago,my earnest hope was that there is will be a better film released sometime in the future.With director David Boyle,screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and a cast led by Michael Fassbender working together on a film based on the Walter Isaacson's authorized biography on the late Apple CEO,will "Steve Jobs" be answer?The film consists of something similar to a three-act play wherein we get to see the life of Steve Jobs during the unveiling of a new product at three different times of his life.The first act <more>
consists of having Jobs working for Apple as a member of an Macintosh R and D group and whose company is about to release the new computer called Macintosh in 1984.The second act consists of having Jobs,who was fired from Apple, now working in his new company called NeXT Computers,which is about to unveil the new computer called "Cube" in 1988.The final act consists of Jobs now again back at Apple working as the CEO and whose company is to release a new computer called iMac in 1998.In these three parts of the film,we get to witness Jobs in three different times of his life from being an company founder of the flourishing Apple Computer Company during the release of the Macintosh in 1984;a fired Apple employee who just started a new lackluster NeXT company during the release of the Cube in 1988; and finally a leader of a resurging Apple company during the release of the iMac in 1998.At the center of these events is Jobs and how he has found success early in his life;get humbled after getting fired from his company by the board and start a new company that had limited success; and get hired back to his company and help it get back from state of being close to bankruptcy into becoming the most successful company in the world.At the center of it all is his relationship with his daughter Lisa whom he first refused to acknowledge when he had early success in life;later reconnected with her during the humbling moments of his life; and finally formed a father-and-daughter relationship when he found a renewed success when he got back to his former company.As for fans and haters alike of the late Apple CEO,Fassbender provides us a marvelous portrayal of a Steve Jobs being both an innovator and a monster alike.We get to witness him as someone that is extremely difficult to get along with due to being an extremely arrogant egomaniac but at the same time whose thinking and ideas for innovation and marketing has led the computer industry into greater heights.Apparently,Steve Wozniak,who acted as consultant to the film,will definitely be more satisfied as it presents a horrible Steve Jobs and it provides appreciation to the engineers and technicians who worked behind the scenes for the release of the successful products of Apple.The film consists of lots of dialogues between characters that is why listening essential to fully appreciate it.In fact,I would not be surprised if "Steve Jobs" will become a theatrical play someday.Finally,going back to my question: Was this a better biopic compared to the one released two years ago? Absolutely!!!!!
I hate Apple products but I love this movie. (by Kesselia)
The beautiful: This film had flavor: a hallway meeting was decorated by showing the launch of Skylab on the wall, the pouring rain outside during a board meeting was reflected on the ceiling, and narrowing the view of the media montage until it was the iconic -i-, the metaphor with the lilies that's the spice of movies, baby! The good: The book/script. How you could summarize all that convoluted history into the span of a movie and still make it extremely entertaining just blows my mind. This one was definitely 'on the page'.The bad: The trailer. Did they capture their target <more>
audience? I only bothered with this one because it was 'her turn to pick' and she loves her phone *rolls eyes*. I also thought it curious that my Apple-fan family didn't mention the movie on social media, 'they' who have worked at or around the company since its inception, went to school with Wozniak's kids and won't shut up about whatever new i-Junk is going on now. Did this movie set them off? Probably.The ugly: The inherent problem with the theater industry. It's all about getting rear-ends into seats. Entertaining the audience is another matter entirely. This movie was extremely entertaining but would not have gotten my rear-end into the seat had someone not dragged me to it.The bottom line: This movie was such an awesome piece of film work that I'm going to go see it again for the movie magic, not for Steve Jobs, or Apple, or i-Whatever.
According to technology reporters such as John Dvorak and Leo Laporte both "old school" ones, who personally lived many of the events portrayed in this film , it seems that Steve Jobs is more fiction than reality; fortunately, it's a perfectly acted, well written and solidly directed fiction, all of which is conjugated with each other in order to compensate its curious narrative decisions. But, does it really offer us a "real" vision of the genuine Steve Jobs? Probably not; for that, there are numerous books and documentaries. What screenwriter Aaron Sorkin attempted <more>
was capturing the essence of the man and his moment in time, examining his nature through the interaction with friends, relatives and colleagues during three stressful moments. As I said, "curious narrative decisions"... but with an interesting result. The unusual structure designed by Sorkin requires an excessive chronological manipulation, suggesting the fact that all the personal and labor problems from Jobs exploited or were solved in the previous minutes to his famous presentations... not only once, but three times. Even Jobs himself mentions that well, the idealized version brilliantly played by Michael Fassbender , but that doesn't excuse the forced narrative juggling of the screenplay. Fortunately, the whole cast makes an exceptional work, transcending those tricks and bringing fluid and absolutely credible performances. Besides, Steve Jobs precisely captures the ideological separation and fraternal compatibility between Jobs and Steve Wozniak, the adored patron saint of hackers who knew what people wanted... but not what they needed. That's where Jobs shined... imposing his taste and will on the consumers, even though many years went by before the economic success validated that arrogant attitude. In conclusion, I don't think Steve Jobs works as an apocryphal History lesson about the digital revolution we currently enjoy/suffer; however, I found it quite an interesting biopic, not only due to the phenomenal performances and Danny Boyle's elegant direction, but also because of its intentional rejection of the biographical clichés which almost always feel superficial and incomplete. Sometimes, the fragments of a portrait end up being more interesting than the whole picture. Nevertheless, my indifference for the Apple products remains.
A Well Made and Acted, If At Times Painfully Pandering Biopic (by perkolatorproductions)
While Boyle and the phenomenal cast have done an excellent job as would be expected, the recent surge in mindless Macintosh support is a bit of a worrying trend world wide. The reason that Steve Jobs is an important figure in American history is not only for his most lucrative company in history's selection of widely known moderate quality, maximum priced products. It was that he set into motion the most destructive economic devolution in the modern age.When Steve Jobs revitalized some old 1980s touch screen tech with a modern twist and called it an iPhone, it not only sent his then <more>
shakily rejoined company's stock skyrocketing, it sent the corporate community into the darkest depths of inhumanely dividend-driven depravity. With the "Corporate Rights Movement"forcing an incorporated business to legally be considered a human being with similar rights, some of the most counter-productive, narcissistically psychopathic business practices since the Pinkertons who still operate today during the Industrial Revolution have occurred.Where Wal-Mart and the Walton family got rich and famous on the "Made in America" campaign, nearly 90% of their products are manufactured by practically enslaved children in poor foreign nations with next to no basic human rights or labor laws today. Microsoft developed a patent/monopoly on the entire field of "Software" so they get endlessly paid for any newfound virtual program. Apple products that sell for thousands of dollars and function worse than much cheaper Windows computers are in bidding wars with desperate Chinese factories to be assembled and shipped for less than a cent per phone at times.Then, as the corporations absorb billions in global profit, they attribute next to none of it back into their country of origin by keeping their massively excessive earnings in dozens of foreign nations with lower income taxes. Meanwhile, as they pay next to no taxes in the States to begin with, they have "lobbied bribed " our U.S. Congressmen to allow them to give them limitless "campaign donations" so that they increase taxes on taxpayers and decrease taxes on the super rich corporate CEOs. Even those CEOs who inherited their money from their parents, went bankrupt and were reimbursed by the taxpayers multiple times, like "super rich, best jobs president" Donald Trump.Then they distract the public by forcing bi-partisan only mentality with no room for situational nuance or compromise to either absolutely love, or unwaveringly loath one company or another making "Corporation fanboys" needlessly angry and those they fight over very rich. "PC vs. Mac," "Microsoft vs. Sony," "Republican vs. Democrat,""Lib Dem vs. Torrie," "White vs. Black," "Male vs. Female," "Straight vs. Gay," "Hate vs. Love," "War vs. Peace." In the end, no one gets anything done, everyone's angry, and the only people who have any health wealth and happiness are those who screwed everyone else.Technology is often very good, but nothing is any good to anyone unless you have factually documented, clearly observable evidence-backed knowledge of how it was made and whether or not it was humanely manufactured and distributed. Think for yourselves, don't let the ads think for you, everything has good and bad, nothing is worthless and nothing is flawless, life isn't all or nothing, people are just more complicated than that, it's why the world is so beautiful.
As Flashy and Flawed As Its Subject. (by MaxColmenares)
This is possibly the most entertaining movie I've seen all year. Steve Jobs has a meld of fast-paced dialog, flashy camera work, and stellar acting that keeps your mind occupied from start to finish. This is not to say that it is perfect, but it is one hell of an achievementThe film takes place in three parts, in three exposition halls, in the hours before three presentations of extreme importance to the title character. Flashbacks are drawn from occasionally, but most of the action takes place on those three individual days. It's a great tool for seeing characters develop. Rather <more>
than slowly show the transformation of a character as they live life, we see how a character has changed, and then are given insight as to why, and also get to see instantly how something effects a character years down the road. The main problem with the structure is the "how the hell did so many things happen all at once?" problem, which makes things occasionally unbelievable. This isn't a huge problem though, as this question can usually be calmed down due to the high stakes of each individual point in time.If you're familiar with Aaron Sorkin's writing The West Wing, The Social Network you know he's got a whole thing going with incredibly clever and fast-paced dialog. Conversations flow like poetry, insults you wish you came up with hit you in your gut, and emotional moments come up at just the right points. The only problem is that it can sometimes be hard to believe that you're watching humans and not genetically engineered forensics champions. Maybe it's like the language of Shakespeare, needing to be accepted for its beauty rather than its realism, but, then again, this is based on recent history and I don't enjoy Shakespeare.Finally, with such a attention-grabbing script and subject it's easy to forget this film was directed by Oscar-winning Danny Boyle. As with David Fincher on The Social Network, Boyle handles Sorkins script loyally, yet adds his own flares. There are a several beautifully composed shots, and a creative effect used a few times that I won't spoil. The look of the film fits perfectly and every actor All fantastic, not much more to say about that delivers their lines in a very fitting manner. I've heard some complaints, but I feel as if Danny Boyle couldn't have done a better job.Overall, even if it's a bit over-theatrical movie, Steve Jobs is a blast to watch, and one of the best biopics of the decade so far.
