Did anyone else who has seen this find it to be extremely reminiscent of Birdman?
Your comment ah intrigues me. How so?

*Minor Spoilers for Steve Jobs Ahead (not plot, just the structure of the film).*

The whole movie takes place backstage at three different keynote events and mostly right before the events are about to occur, making it feel rather similar to Birdman which happens right before Riggan's play. Additionally, the protagonists are similar in some ways (or at least are portrayed as such) with both thinking that they're brilliant and visionary.

Plus they're both just excellent films that are almost entirely based around dialogue and characters rather than plot.
