Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine hits theaters, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and on demand systems today, and it's already provoking a wide range of reviews and discussion. In March, our own Bryan Bishop called it an "unflinching look at the emotional shrapnel people took when they were part of Jobs’ life," and that focus sets it apart from the growing body of work that celebrates Jobs' accomplishments in business and technology while glossing over the depth of his character.

I spoke with Gibney earlier this week about the movie, what he'd learned while making it, and the future of Apple.

I've seen it. "Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine" is amazing. What a beautiful testament to a brilliant, but flawed man. This documentary is anything but anti-Apple (as some claim). By painting this complete a picture of Jobs, it's as pro-Apple as it could possibly get - and it's glorious for it. When it hits upon Apple's best days - the original iMac, iBook, PowerMac G4, the Cube, the iMac G4 - I nearly lost it. That is the Apple I still love.

I've never felt I understood him and Apple as much as I do now.

The Powermac G4 was a good machine, wasn't it? I never owned one.

The Powermac G4 was an absolutely gorgeous machine. Beautiful hardware architecture, fantastic case design, far far far and away better than the glued together garbage that Apple is putting out today.

If it wasn't for OS X, there is no way I'd buy any new Apple hardware made today.

I think the little quad core Mac Mini that is my current home desktop machine is a nice piece of kit; excellent build quality and totally, I would disagree with your last sentence for sure.
