New documentary shows the dark side of Steve Jobs

There's a new documentary on Steve Jobs which takes a critical look at the extraordinary life of the late tech icon. Combining old footage and new interviews, Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine centers on the Apple co-founder's brilliant career and his private life.

   Not to be confused with the Steve Jobs movie starring Michael Fassbender, the documentary follows Jobs from his pre-Apple days to his reign as CEO of a multibillion-dollar company. However, the film also depicts him as a brutal and arrogant man driven as much by ambition as innovation.

   Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine is the latest project from Oscar-winning documentary maker Alex Gibney, who is the director behind Taxi to the Dark Side, along with We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, and, most recently, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.

   The film will be released in theaters and on iTunes on September 4.
