    Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World

    ★★★

    An interesting film tackling the interesting challenge of creating a film about something you can’t actually see. The first half started strong, in classic Herzog style, he found some brilliant stories and characters. However in the second half it started to loop and became very episodic that it lacked a flow.

    Steve Jobs

    ★★★★

    As a watch it was an interesting telling of the story and character of Steve Jobs using the launches as a device to hold a broader context. While as a script it’s not as strong as The Social Network you started to get a view in to the character of Jobs. Not quite classic Boyle in his approach but good to see him trying different things.

    A very powerful film, handling a challenging topic. A really interesting approach addressing the nature of children.
