Kernel Rating (out of 5):
MPAA Rating: NR Length: 72 minutes
Age Appropriate for: 8+. A couple instances of the “s” word, but otherwise no cursing or offensive language. Best for older children who are curious about the man behind Apple, and for parents hoping to spark an interest in computers and technology in their kids.
For Apple enthusiasts interested in more than just how many apps they can load on their iPhone, ‘Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview’ is an interesting look at Jobs when he was caught in flux, trying to move on after leaving Apple. What he says about is Apple’s future is certainly eerie—but not necessarily mind-boggling.

I am not an Apple person. I don’t have an iPod, iPhone, iPad, or Mac, and I don’t use iTunes. Apple stores seem like frantic, frenetic places that would just stress me out. But I get the brand’s cult-like following, and how Apple co-founder Steve Jobs brought the company back from the brink of bankruptcy certainly seems magical—especially after watching “Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview.” Even though it shouldn’t really be a movie (how about just an hour-long TV special?), “Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview” is an interesting look at the man who kept so much to himself but gave so much to people who would become brand devotees.
