Movie Review: Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs (Michael Fassbender) is about to go on stage in Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs"

Steve Jobs (Michael Fassbender) is about to go on stage in Danny Boyle’s “Steve Jobs”

Told in a three-act structure, Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin brings the audience behind-the-scenes of Apple founder Steve Jobs (Michael Fassbender) prior to three of his product launches from 1984 to 1998 (Macintosh, NeXTcube, and the iMac). They brilliantly gives us a portrait of the man: arrogant, manipulative, selfish. But most of all, human. Remember the other one with Ashton Kutcher dressing up for Halloween? Yeah, I don’t buy it. Michael Fassbender is the superior actor to play Jobs, even though he looks nothing like him. Leading an extraordinary cast including Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen (refreshing to see him in a dramatic role), and Jeff Daniels, they come together to bring an emotionally tense and exciting character study of one of the most influential people in the tech world. Steve Jobs is this year’s The Social Network.
