However, production value aside, the most embarrassing part of the film is the fact that the writers clearly didn't actually know what they were talking about. There is nothing new or interesting about Jobs in this film -- it feels like they just read his Wikipedia page. In fact, their lack of understanding of the subject matter is pretty apparent when they illustrate that they don't know how to say the name of the Mac OSX operating system. They fundamentally misunderstand simple technology and say things that just aren't true -- like when they state that the iPhone runs on OSX.
If I were the filmmakers, I'd pull this film. It's that bad. It's that embarrassing for them. Worst of all, everyone knows it.
This doc neither presents new information, nor does it present old info in an interesting view (talk even less of style).
In short, I concur with the more recent reviews of this doc. I'll just add this: the horribly framed interviews of the numerous (obvious) Australians burned what little credibility this doc was hoping to uphold.
BTW, I think the first two reviews were written by friends of the producers, if not by themselves.
While I categorize this documentary as decently made,there is nothing new to be learned as most of the information presented in it are probably already known by many before particularly Mac worshipers and Apple enthusiasts.For better documentaries,I would recommend Steve Jobs:The Last Thing and Steve Jobs:The Lost Interview.As for more information about the Jobs,just read Walter Isaacson's biography about the icon.
I loved it!!!
