Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine (2015)

 Director: Alex Gibney. 128 min. Rated R. Documentary.

On one hand, yes, the iPhone changed my life, and Apple products have changed the world. On the other, we have Steve Jobs, a deceitful, cunning, cruel businessman, who used any means necessary to achieve that change - and probably destroyed a few lives along the way. So while Jobs (with the help of small people who wait for hours in line for the next Apple product) compares himself to Lennon, MLK and Einstein as one of the "great changers" of our time, Alex Gibney's newest documentary exposes that hypocrisy; albeit unilaterally. You'll never look at your iPhone the same way.
