Spelling Is Correct? Just a guess.

I hate to nitpick, but the woman that wrote this article for Vanity Fair should really learn the difference between a goatee and a beard. If you're gonna be a journalist, get your terms correct!

They intended it to be made for TV but the only reason to go to Sundance is to try to get a distributor. Even if it only goes limited it would be a release.

It's about as immature as the mans temper tantrums when he unleashed his fury on employees that didn't keep him happy. Because of the near universal culture of worshipping money & power in the USA, he could get away with what would never be tolerated under slightly different circumstances.

If this movie is anything less than a blockbuster, the Apple faithful will place blame anywhere they feel like.

You can tell by the comments thus far, there's a lot of expectations & building discontentment over the choice of A.K.

It's just a small movie, there's nothing to get emotional about.

"Bare"?

I didn't know that nudity was involved in the Lord Jobs biopic.

But, if we're going to have full frontal manflesh, Ashton's a winner.

Can I give this a +100? Because you've nailed it with the word "worship".

Sorry, but i don't care if you trying to be sarcastic or funny. But you and your 60+ "ups" are going to be very disappointed. You do know it's from Sony Pictures?

Beating a dead horse, but until you people can understand blu-ray is supreme picture. 4K is next.

And if its not released on Bluray, it's because the movie sucked and went straight to DVD and "rent" on iTunes.

Reading the comments regarding Kutcher's casting made me think that I had somehow gone back in time and was reading comments regarding the casting of Heath Ledger as The Joker in The Dark Knight.

Lets wait for a few scenes to be released before we condemn his performance.

There's nothing to deny as that is a ridiculous claim. Consumer choice is what propelled Apple past all their competitors and helped them become a worldwide-recognized superbrand.

Except that Heath Ledger was already hailed for his acting abilities, unlike Kutcher. Not predicting a failure here, but it's just that Kutcher's previous acting "record" (of not having and/or delivering good performances in dramatic roles) works against him.

Ashton is one of the best actors alive. His acting in the movie Dude Where's My Car? was truly inspirational.

Wasn't Jobs a Buddhist?

Wasn't Steve Jobs a practicing Buddhist?

He's already been reincarnated. Enough with the rolling in his grave.

Those gold tips go back to the 60s/70s. I have dozens of pairs never worn from my deceased grandfather.

Zen Buddhist with touches of Taoism throughout his philosophies on life. Working around him we had the best offices at NeXT. Better than those at Apple which I'm glad to see his dream of designing Apple's campus come to be.

I first saw the pic and didn't read the title and thought it was Steve. Read the title and felt silly.

He;s one of those guys that got lucky he was able to get through life with such a serious personality disorder. All sorts of crazy things happen in the world, this is just another example. Seriously, every time i see the bum who lives outside the office building i own, I think, that coulda been Jobs. Not to disrespect Jobs, he made me a LOT of money, just stating a fact.
