Yesterday night I've seen the film based on the life of Steven Paul Jobs: JOBS.
My first judgment was not very positive and I haven't liked it so much.
Basically the film synthesizes the life of Steve, from the beginning of Apple Computer to the creation of the iconic iPod. It's a quite long period and the authors wanted to summarize all the major events of that years and, in my opinion, they made a big mistake: they haven't really gone deep into the characters.
Steve Jobs was a great manager, a genial artist, a visionary but also a great man, that has lived many troubles and has experimented many things in order to find something for which is worth living. He had created Apple not only to make money (lots of money), but mainly to satisfy a personal need and tension towards beauty.
This is my opinion and during the movie this aspect emerges, but not as it deserves. All happens so quickly that this tension is almost lost in many passages. Things happen with incredible speed, Apple Computer borns, grows up and becomes a multinational company in a few minutes: maybe, the film shouldn't only focus on Apple's growth but mainly on Steve's figure.
Maybe the authors could only select a particular event, and focus on the personality and psychology of Jobs, trying to convey this tension that he carried inside.
"The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it, keep looking. Don't settle." - Steve Jobs
