Jobs299Meet the Filmmaker: Academy Award winning director Alex Gibney

Filling the screen with tough questions about the particular modern world the brilliant visionary helped create, this version of the Jobs tale is as much cultural commentary as survey of accomplishments. From the birth of Apple in the 1970’s, the hit parade of his creations are rolled out-from the first Macintosh to the iPhone. Mixed in with the high-flying story of best-selling products is a reality check into Mr. Jobs’ less savory activities. A penetrating cultural commentary and anatomy of a complicated public character. USA, 2015, 128 minutes, documentary

“Brings home the complexities and contradictions of the man…”– Steven Rea, The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Gibney dissects Jobs’s image with the calm curiosity of a coroner…” – Amy Nicholson, Village Voice

“While the filmmaker’s trademark mixture of talking heads, archival footage and investigative ethos is familiar, Gibney is certainly good at what he does, and “Steve Jobs” is at its best in providing a brisk summation of the man’s life. Or, more accurately, lives, for Jobs seemed to have been more people than one would have thought possible…” – Kenneth Turan , Los Angeles Times
