  • Filmmaker Alex Gibney delivers a sporadically interesting yet mostly underwhelming documentary that feels like it's missing huge chunks of the story...

  • It is also a stunning emblem of our delusional, self-aggrandizing, fake-it-till-you-make-it times, a cautionary tale of the tech era and the insidious culture it has created of would-be legends and short-lived genius.
