Steve Jobs founded Apple Inc. with his techie pal Steve Wozniak after leaving Reed College in Portland, Oregon at which he managed only a 6 month stint. He became a technician for Wozniak and fell instantly in love with the world of computers and his own ideas in revolutionising computers for the public. However, he proved to be a difficult person to work for when Apple became a major business, leading to him leaving the company for some time while he started over on another project. But through all the hardship and controversial leadership skills, Jobs is remembered as a pioneer who built an empire with the brand that everybody loved before passing away from pancreatic cancer in 2011 after an eight year health struggle.

Steve Jobs is the late founder of Apple Inc. and who was a technological pioneer in terms of computers and general electronics. 'jOBS' is the brand new biopic on this extraordinary and charismatic man who sadly passed away from pancreatic cancer on October 5th 2011 aged just 56. This movie chronicles his career from 1971 to 2011 beginning with his dropping out of the expensive Reed College in Portland, Oregon after only 6 months before going on to his first job as a technician which later saw him work with business partner Steve Wozniak for the first time; a partner who became a major player in the creation of Apple Computers.
This long awaited biopic is soon to be released following a lengthy wait since production began in June 2012; just eight months after Jobs' death. It has been directed by Joshua Michael Stern ('Swing Vote', 'Neverwas'), produced by Mark Hulme and written by Matt Whiteley in his screenwriting debut. Much of the filming even took place at Jobs' actual childhood home in Los Altos, California. The independent flick was chosen to close the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in January 2013 and is set for theatrical release in the US on April 19th 2013.

Secretary explodes with juicy innuendo, even from its opening moments. An extending establishing shot plays against mischievously sensual music as a woman seductively strolls through a business office performing secretarial duties. She approaches a desk, staples a few papers, pours fresh coffee into a mug, and then returns to her employer. Sounds ordinary, except that she does these things while locked inside a weird S&M device.

Everything seemed to be in place to make a good film out of Trixie, starting with a great cast of Nick Nolte, Will Patton, Dermot Mulrooney, newcomer Brittany Murphy, Nathan Lane, and the wonderfully versatile actress Emily Watson. The story follows a misunderstood girl named Trixie, who has an annoying habit of mixing up her metaphors - with such memorable lines as "life is no bed of gravy" and "it's like looking through a needle for a haystack." Trixie holds dead-end jobs as a security guard for low-rent department stores but yearns for something better in her life. Don't we all. Eventually she takes a job at a casino resort as an undercover cop and gets involved in a tangled mess of a political sex scandal/murder mystery. Don't you just hate when that happens?!

This dark, yet gentle love story is about the relationship between Blake and Francis Falls (Mark and Michael Polish), seen through the eyes of Penny (newcomer Michelle Hicks) the hooker. Written, starring, and directed by, The Polish brothers, Twin Falls Idaho captures a wealth of sadness and truth. The plot centers on Blake's struggle to reconcile his affection for Penny with an unshakable dedication to ailing brother Francis. Out of that turmoil comes the film's most poignant scene, as Francis desperately attempts to physically keep his brother from the one thing he knows he will never have - a woman.

Literal and symbolic duplicity are only the simplest of character traits in the people that populate "Twin Falls, Idaho."
So much goes understood yet unspoken in every relationship of this densely cerebral story that as Michael and Mark Polish -- twin brothers and the movie's writers, directors and stars -- were developing the script, they must have boiled it down to its most engrossing base elements between each revision before adding back in only elements necessary to advance the plot, which is about the unique relationship between reclusive conjoined twins.
Opening in an atmosphere that recalls the dark, freak show flavor of David Cronenberg or David Lynch, "Twin Falls" finds its title characters, Blake and Francis Falls, quietly holed up from a gawking world in a seedy New York hotel room (on Idaho Street -- the title has nothing to do with the Northwestern city it's named after). The mood is bizarre as they wait for a hooker, who subsequently runs away when she sees she'd be pulling a rather macabre double duty.
