The Pirates of Silicon Valley tells the story of the Tech Titans that have made technology what it is today. It goes about what it took to build up the global empires of Apple and Microsoft.
The biographical film looks at the men who founded Apple and Microsoft through the early days of the respective companies whilst comparing both firm’s differences and similarities. Without giving away too much, I think this film ties in humor with the biography in a tasteful and admirable way. Both Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were obsessive personalities that almost lost the respect of the people that loved them most but despite those things, they become the industry leaders that they are today.
The ups and downs that come with success or the chase of it is brought to life in the film and it really does show that not that glitters is gold.
