Quand Steve Jobs est mort, le monde a pleuré. Mais comment expliquer le chagrin de millions de personnes qui ne le connaissaient pas ? Ce film évocateur retrace le parcours de Steve Jobs, d'une petite maison de banlieue aux temples zen du Japon, en passant par le bureau du PDG de l'entreprise la plus riche du monde, et explore comment la vie et l'œuvre de Steve Jobs ont façonné notre relation avec l'ordinateur. The Man in the Machine est une réévaluation provocante et parfois surprenante de l'héritage d'une icône.

In 2009 director Alex Gibney set out to film The Road Back, a documentary on cyclist Lance Armstrong's comeback year after a four-year retirement from the sport. Three years later, on October 2012, a doping investigation led to his lifetime ban from competition and the stripping of his seven Tour de France titles, and the documentary was shelved. On January 14, 2013, three hours after his appearance on Oprah, Armstrong went back to Gibney to set the record straight about his career.

The film follows documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney as he examines the abuse of power in the Catholic Church system through the story of four deaf men — Terry Kohut, Gary Smith, Pat Kuehn and Arthur Budzinski — who set out to expose the priest who abused them during the mid-1960s. Each of the men brought forth the first known case of public protest against clerical sex abuse, which later lead to the sex scandal case known as the Lawrence Murphy case. Through their case the film follows a cover-up that winds its way from the row houses of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, through Ireland's churches, all the way to the highest office of the Vatican.
