Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine

Synopsis & Film Details

From Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney comes an insightful, piercing documentary into the legacy of a man revered worldwide as a genius, while those close to him felt the weight of his ambition — the late Steve Jobs. With his black turtleneck, blue jeans, and a ubiquitous Apple shining behind him, Jobs’s image was iconic. Through archival footage and candid interviews with co-workers and journalists, Gibney seeks to understand if the tech legend’s contradictory nature toward his work and personal life affected not only those close to him but the millions of customers who mourned him. Gibney — best known for “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room” and “We Steal Secrets” — goes beyond the Apple stage to take an unflinching look into the man who forever shaped Silicon Valley.
