Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on July 17, 2011

Nominated at the Emmy awards for best picture, best screenplay, best editing, best sound mixing and best casting. You could call it “The Social Network”‘s little brother. It is the dramatized version of the historical development, contracts, backstabbing and deals of how personal computer and Windows came to power. The main characters in the film are Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. More accurate than “The Social Network” and more true to reality, the production portrays the seed of a war which is still going on. Watching this, you will understand how things evolved. An ironic depiction of capitalist greed (which went unpunished) and the American Dream, it is a must see for all those who wish to earn money through the internet and putting things into perspective you could actually call it a historical movie. Find out how IT empires were built!

I have to recognize although I hate the morals of the main characters,the actors very effectively portrayed the toughness of the American entrepreneur. Used with discent, it is a great and inspiring power. 

My rating: 7 / 10 (Very good movie)
