The Social Network
. . . And Turn It Into My Ping Pong Room
There were so many things to like about this movie, its almost sickening. First and foremost, the creation of Facebook, a worldwide phenomenon, is a perfect story to tell, especially in an age where information is really the only weapon and entertainment we have. Director David Fincher combines successfully the techno-biopic with personal characterizations and a very suspense-filled aura that fills the theatre as you watch. Actors Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield are very fine in their portrayals of people we haven't really gotten to know yet, but are making headlines as much as they are making friends. Justin Timberlake is stellar as Sean Parker, inventor and founder of Napster, which is deservedly Supporting Actor Oscar material, hands down. Aron Sorkin's writing has very finely attuned to a smaller cinematic scope that sets itself apart from "West Wing" which his previous credit lies. No doubt Oscar material for Adapted Screenplay, Director, Picture, and even possibly music by Nine Inch Nails band member Trent Reznor. A fine film that is deserving of all praise.
