Movie Review

The Social Network dir. David Fincher — 7.8

I'm amazed that Aaron Sorkin was able to write a script about the founding of Facebook that was actually pretty fascinating. On its surface, this is pretty much the last movie in the world I wanted to see. But I learned a lot about the machinations of putting together one of the most profitable companies in the world, and how arbitrary it was in many ways. And how much of a prick Mark Zuckerberg either is or isn't. Frankly, I'm inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt, since anyone who has a movie made about how selfish and deluded they are in their twenties deserves utter sympathy. No one deserves that level of scrutiny at that age (he was a jerk to a girl! He was mean to his roommate! He didn't realize how his behavior effected others!) even if he is one of the richest men in the country.

And, Twitter too… Also on Facebook
