Love him or hate him, there's no doubt Steve Jobs was a fascinating, complex and contradictory figure. Two years on from his untimely death, you can now watch biopic Jobs on Netflix in the US.
Ashton Kutcher dons the black turtle-neck in a dramatisation spanning Jobs' early life as a college drop-out in the 1970s to the launch of the iPod in 2001, taking in the period he left to start a rival firm and his eventual triumphant return.
Director Joshua Michael Stern isn't afraid to portray the uncompromising Apple co-founder in an unsympathetic light, but moves too briskly through the events of Jobs' life and leaves out too much of his personal relationships to really explore the contradictions of the man's character -- the hippy who built a capitalist empire, for example, or the adopted son who refused to acknowledge his own child.

What’s the employee number?
