Unflattering Steve Jobs documentary to air on CNN by Oscar winning director

Lets be honest, Steve Jobs may not have always been the best guy to be around never mind work for, and his behaviour towards those he worked close with was always the topic of controversy.

Now a critical documentary is said to air on CNN directed by Alex Gibney, an  Oscar winning director.

“Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine”, directed by Oscar winner Alex Gibney, aims to give viewers a “greater understanding of the celebrated tech icon.”

“It’s an unflinching look at the emotional shrapnel people took when they were part of Jobs’ life, and how some of them — paradoxically — still feel tremendous love and gratitude towards him,” The Verge writes.

In a portion of the film aired online, we see early Macintosh director of engineering Bob Belleville sobbing as he reads his eulogy for Steve Jobs. The Verge says this is after describing how Apple destroyed his marriage and pushed him away from his children.

Apple senior executive Eddy Cue tweeted on Monday that the film was: “An inaccurate and mean-spirited view of my friend. It’s not a reflection of the Steve I knew.”
