  • [New – 10/9/15] | Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice
    • Excerpt: A thought-provoking and ethically-charged documentary about the Apple computer entrepreneur.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Gibney’s inspiration was the outpouring of public grief for Jobs upon his death in 2011, a phenomenon that clearly got his dander up and which prompts him to begin this work with a simple question, ‘Why?’ That question is never answered…
  • Andy Crump @ Paste Magazine
    • Excerpt: …as Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine pores over history, it becomes an entirely different film than the one with which Gibney commences. He buries the lede.
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: Director Alex Gibney’s ‘Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine’ removes the rose-coloured glasses to look at the rise of the Apple co-founder.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: Apple was once David going against the indomitable Goliath that was IBM. Much lauded American documentarian Alex Gibney (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks) makes a strong case that Apple ultimately became Goliath.
  • Kristen Lopez @ Cinema Sentries
  • Norm Schrager @ Film Racket
    • Excerpt: Gibney rehashes what is likely known to many, and creates a long, inconsistent story that lacks its own magnetic north.
