We’re just about a week out from the limited release of Danny Boyle‘s hotly anticipated Steve Jobs, the latest take on the ingenious Apple CEO, starring Michael Fassbender in the titular role and powered by a snappy script from Aaron Sorkin. It’s the best of a recent spat of movies that have attempted to encapsulate Jobs’ philosophies, persona, and business acumen, including Jobs, which starred Ashton Kutcher as the title character, and Alex Gibney‘s documentary The Man in the Machine. These films have done quite a lot to clear up his personal life, but none of them have quite grasped Jobs’ exquisitely attuned sense of commercial appeal and the uneasy yet crucial connection between commerce and style. In other words, all the behind-the-curtains drama has diverted attention from his far more fascinating public and business persona, the elements that made his products and sense of design so appealing to the world.
