Steve Jobs the film, chronicles some of the conflicts Steve Jobs underwent during his tenures at Apple, both before getting fired, in the interim, and after his triumphant return as the head of Apple with the launch of the iMac.
I reviewed Jobs starring Ashton Kutcher back when almost no one read my blog. Back then I was very impressed with Kutcher’s performance and his likeness to Steve Jobs. Michael Fassbender didn't resembled Steve Jobs physically during most of this movie, but his alienating attitude was spot on.
The film Steve Jobs explores, in conflict form, Steve Jobs make as a man. Curiously, his closest people thought he was brilliant but an otherwise deplorable human being. What comes through in this movie is Fassbender ability to shine under constant emotional pressure, present because most of the movie is one argument after the other. Therefore, in Steve Jobs is not the leader that is explored so much but rather the man behind the myth, and quite a man he was.
You may believe him disagreeable but the man and the company he founded have changed the way we live in remarkable ways.
In Steve Jobs star a stellar supporting cast headed by Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels, and Seth Rogen in his first big leagues role.

Wozniak to Jobs: "It's not binary. You can be decent and gifted at the same time."
