This was so much better than the Jobs movie (with Ashton Kutcher) that came out about Steve Jobs a few years earlier. This one was much more of a raw look at the insanity of Steve Jobs' life. His complete disregard for humanity and emotion and his incessant drive for complete end-to-end control.
There were a few things that I didn't know about Steve Jobs that I learned from this movie.
- He had bad hygiene practices. One weird scene in the movie showed Jobs dipping his feet into a toilet bowl. Apparently, that's a real thing he did.
- He hated starting presentations late. I've never heard of this peculiar point before the film and it was almost comically mentioned in the film to a crazy degree. Did he really never start a presentation late?
- Steve Jobs hated the Newton -- because of the stylus. Not because the device looked stupid.
- Jobs was a dick to the Apple II team. I felt so bad for them.
Anyway, an enjoyable film from beginning to end if you want to see a real side of Steve Jobs not normally mentioned in media (at least until recently).
