Steve Jobs is available in: English – Audio Description English on Netflix Portugal
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.
US film or UK film is not an issue, but the real question was the second movie required? Plenty of films are made in a short period of gap about the same person like ‘Infamous’ and ‘Capote’, themes like ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ and ‘White House Down’, and sometimes remakes like ‘Deaths at a Funeral’ from other film industries. So the history says audience accepts only they are different from each other and so this film was, but very very sad it bombed at the box office.
Like everybody I was not interested in this, even though it was from a renowned filmmaker. But after watching it now, I felt I was terribly wrong. Actually, this is the best version so far about the Apple Inc co-founder Steve Jobs. It was entirely a different narration than the previous one, everything was like the backstage drama that takes place before every product launch. That means most of the film was shot in the auditoriums and its corridor, parking lot, rooftop, and other surround places.
All the affairs like family, friends, co-founders, business, troubles et cetera are brought into one place and dealt there itself. Surely a very cleverly written screenplay and display by the actors, especially the two Oscars nominee Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslate. Once again Danny Boyle proved his directional skill with this beautiful biopic. I did not LIKE the end scene, but LOVED it. In fact, this film’s end and Ashton Kutcher film’s opening scenes has a clean follow. I also felt the movie was very honest, but I don’t how much since I’m not into the books to learn about the famous personalities. It’s not a must see, but definitely worth a try.
