When the part about cancer came, I found myself thinking 'Talk about karma...'. Gibney does his part in exposing the mass delirium surrounding Job's personality cult. The guy was more than just an asshole, it could be argued that he was plain evil. Interesting two hours of shitting on Jobs.

There are many things about our unhealthy relationship with technology this film questions, but primarily it's about how Jobs became the ruthless capitalist his counter-culture antics had always made an enemy of. It's like the mother of his first child says: he fucked up his enlightenment.

Gibney's approach here was more about broadly illustrating than deeply illuminating. He's good at the former, but excellent at the latter (GOING CLEAR, CLIENT 9, and CASINO JACK, for example). Worth a watch either way, though.

A very interesting documentary about an extremely polarising subject. One gets the feeling that this film, at times, paints an unnecessarily harsh picture of Jobs, but in a world obsessed with his vision and legacy, perhaps it is more necessary than is obvious. Personally, I do believe this angle needs more popular attention, as much as I respect what Jobs achieved in his all too short life. A must see for anybody curious about technology or entrepreneurs.

Gibney's latest effort polishes the life of alternative medicine ambassador, Steve Jobs, with poetic symmetry pulled from the surroundings of Japanese stone gardens. Jobs is a strange man with odd reactions to life's events which makes him a good pulpy subject for a documentary, but TMitM seeks to manufacture an image of the man, sometimes becoming a straight up editorial, rather than allowing for justification of his actions, although the driver for most of them is blatantly obvious.

The documentary is better then the movie! Michael Fassbender did a great Steve Jobs, but no one can do Steve Jobs like Steve Jobs!
