Summary: On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history... but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications.
Sadly, we only get a couple of movies like this each year. The Social Network moves beyond the popularity of Facebook and tells a story with the power of Citizen Kane, but with a wit that makes it both enjoyable and engaging. Fincher proves here that he is fully capable of branching out of his comfort zone and taking on much more subtle projects. 5/5
This was really riveting. I'm hoping that most of these events have been embellished for dramatic purposes, because if not, Mark Zuckerberg is the biggest sociopath to ever revolutionize...socializing.
David Fincher is one of my favorite directors of 21st century and each movie he makes, I become more interested in him. this is the movie of characters and Aaron Sorkin has shown his ability in this movie. the movie has a bunch of extraordinary acting. once again by this movie we understand judging people is more complicated than we think.
Witty, acerbic, and surprisingly gripping. About as good as dialogue-driven drama gets, with stellar writing courtesy Sorkin, great performances and memorable "characters," and a masterful structure (the bookends are particularly brilliant). If it's not the best of 2010, it's certainly up there.
A film of the now. What is amazing about this film is that none of the characters is that likeable but you are still interested. In no small part due to the performances (Justin Trousersnake can act? Lawks) Also, you get some great Sorkinese veryveryveryfasttalk.
The Social Network wants to be a social satire, a miniaturist comedy of manners, and a Greek tragedy; it bites off a lot, at times more than it can chew. But even the unmasticated morsels are pretty tasty.
Dialogue, dialogue and more dialogue. It's about as perfect as it could be, but that's no surprise when someone as clever and creative as Aaron Sorkin is writing the script. Oh, and that David Fincher guy isn't a bad director either. Furthermore, the very young cast was very good and it is easily my favorite film of 2010.
