The Social Network (2010)

The Social NetworkReleased: October 1, 2010Director: David FincherStars: Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin TimberlakeRuntime: 120 min.

The Social Network tells the great true story the world’s youngest billionaire, the motivated Mark Zuckerberg. The film follows the young computer wiz’s climb to the top, going through past and present to when he apparently steals the idea for Facebook, and when he squeezes his best friend/co-founder out of the business. Often times, the computer talk and mathematical algorithms go right over my head, but the storytelling is very compelling. The brilliant writing by Aaron Sorkin is just one of the greatest things about the film. The music, the editing and the direction are also great. Jesse Eisenberg is great as Mark Zuckerberg, a fine movie star whose sarcastic humour brings Mark to life. He and Andrew Garfield do great jobs of expressing remorse, regret and pain. Justin Timberlake and Armie Hammer also do great jobs.

Score: 100/100

  1. You aren’t kidding when you say the storytelling is compelling. I’ve returned to this movie more times than I ever would’ve expected, and it really all comes down to the writing and dialogue, which was just captivating throughout. Nice review. 🙂
