Movie Review: "Steve Jobs" the imperfect film that demands a viewing

Poster for Steve Jobs movie paints a lonely figure
HOLLYWOOD---Let's be straight: "Steve Jobs" shouldn't have worked as a movie. The setup is fully experimental, all talking from start to finish; Michael Fassbender doesn't look a thing like Jobs; it's loaded with geekspeak, even for a movie about the most famous man in personal computing history. Also, its protagonist shows every sign of being an antihero, and as a culture, we're kind of over antiheroes. I'm giving it three stars because I think, at the end of the movie, it could have been better at everything it tries to do. But it does work, and I'm still not sure why. [link]
