Steve Jobs: Absolutely Absorbing
May 14th, 2012 § Leave a Comment
I only got time to drop a quick line about this film, but suffice it to say, this is a NOT TO BE MISSED FILM!
Let me break it down for you, you know how all those VHS events at Grand Illusion (curated by our good friends at Scarecrow Video) have a warmth and vibrancy and immediacy that sucks you right into your overplush velvet seats in the cozy womb of our theatre? Now couple that with the fireside chat of the late Steve Jobs from a rescued VHS tape of an interview that took place shortly before his return to Apple and you have yourself an incredible experience that reminds you why you love every Apple product you own. The reason? The man’s unwavering enthusiasm to building the best products that create the best personal computing experience for the greatest number of people.
Normally the lack of edits and often static framing would drive you batty, but you don’t notice as the man’s words and thoughts enrapture and enthrall you. Come on, I know you have at least owned an iPod. This is the best interview with Steve I’ve ever seen, Apple fans and even those just interested in hearing one of the brightest minds of the 20th century be picked for your pleasure will find a lot to take away from this film.
