Week 2 -- Synthesizing sources: Four movie reviews of "Steve Jobs" 1) Anne Hornaday - The author explains how the acting was confined into a short-but-to-the- point manner, depicting Jobs from an inner, psychological perspective rather than feeling obligated to highlight the factual and superficial details. quotes: "Unburdened by the distraction of spot-on impersonation and conventional Great Man milestones, Fassbender and his fascinating, often off-putting character steer clear of the dreaded biopic shallows to explore murkier psychological depths" (Hornaday, 2015) Rex Reed - The author immediately expresses their strong dislike for the movie, as it unfolds at a fast and careless pace, unable to fully reveal the story of Steve Jobs like a biography would. "If you’re interested in the rags-to-riches story of the late Steve Jobs, the tech nerd who devoted his life to the digital revolution and self-destructed in the process, then stay away from the cold, bloodless and incomprehensible movie with the cut-the-crap-and-get-to- the-point title Steve Jobs" (Reed, 2015) " Mr. Sorkin [the screen-writer] informed the audience he did not want to make a 'biopic.' "(Reed, 2015) " If there is a story worth telling, it’s a secret here ."(Reed, 2015) Anthony Lane - The writer conveys their satisfaction with how the film was constructed. the film, according to Lane, was great in that it intertwined the three main phases of Apple's evolution. The actor put a fashionable spin to the portrayal of Jobs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
