Movie Review: "Steve Jobs"

Steve Jobs is one of the most unique biopics ever produced.  The film paints a picture of the enigmatic Apple computers co-founder by going backstage at three product launches in his illustrious career, where Jobs interacts with countless figures within his life to show us who this man was and how he evolved over time.  The most fascinating thing about this film is that it makes you look at all of your Apple devices differently.  You are able to see all of the brilliance of Steve Jobs on display, as well as all of his faults.  Actor Michael Fassbender is amazing as Jobs, even though the two look nothing alike.  While some may quibble about this little detail being historically inaccurate or whatever, no biopic is 100% perfect, but Steve Jobs is about as close as any can get.  It is a film that requires you to think while also entertaining you with the energy on display in the script from Aaron Sorkin and the direction from Danny Boyle.

I give Steve Jobs a 9 out of 10!
