Review: Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine, 2015, dir. Alex Gibney


“Who better than Alex Gibney to profile Steve Jobs? Well, probably plenty of directors, but still: Gibney has a reputation as an incisive, no-nonsense documentarian with a keen mind for layered investigation and an impressive bullshit detector. He’s also old hat at dissolving the facade of celebrity—as in his 2013 picture, The Armstrong Lie—and at yanking corruption and wrongdoing into the daylight, as in the Emmy nominated Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, which arrived earlier this year. In both films, Gibney’s mission is laid out in the first few minutes: Expose the truth, disperse the lie and gently proceed without mercy.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
