Critic Reviews for Steve Jobs: Man in the Machine

All Critics (76) | Top Critics (26)

Despite the movie's journalistic substance, the pleasure-free banality of its style gets in the way of a view of Jobs himself, whose work is as much aesthetic as it is industrial.

Little here is new, but the archival footage is well chosen, the interviewees are illuminating, and Gibney, as usual, potently synthesizes what's out there.

There is practically nothing in this film that was not already raked over in Walter Isaacson's 2013 biography or in the many thousands of articles about Jobs over the years. But there is something about seeing and hearing this story onscreen.

"Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine" is still wholly engrossing, especially in its first half, when it tells its thrilling creation stories.

A complex portrait that gives as much weight to Jobs' world-changing talents as to his personal flaws.

Audience Reviews for Steve Jobs: Man in the Machine

½

The documentaries were better, but worth watching for the strong performances. Even if not at all realistic.

An insightful documentary on the contradictory, complex genius that is Steve Jobs. It offers little that the public doesn't already know but there's still a few interesting tales to be told here.

Despite not really offering anything we don't already know about Steve Jobs it does take a different look at more of the somewhat sinister goings on at Apple that nobody really knows about.
