A definitive and revolutionary contribution to modern American life so deftly put to screen, "The Social Network" is a dense biopic sure to be labeled as a classic years from now.

Tyler Winklevoss: "Woops. Broke your 350 year old doorknob". The social Network follows Mark Zuckenberg, Sean Parker and Eduardo Saverin as they create Facebook, which has since become the web's most popular social network. David Fincher directed this movie in a way that the movie could have been boring or uninteresting, but Mr. Fincher and the writers to this movie made it worked. The acting in this film is spellbinding and the story is top notch. The movie does slows down at times but that didn't stop me liking the film.

On paper The Social Network seemed strange. The director of Se7en and Fight Club making a movie about the inventor of Facebook starring the guy from Zombieland. It was hard to see the film working out because it just seemed like a weird mixture of pieces. Boy was I wrong.
I can’t bring up the work Fincher did without first calling attention to Aaron Sorkin. From the opening moment of the film, a date between Mark and his girlfriend, you are steamrolled with good strong fast paced dialogue. This is dialogue that feels way more interesting than the usual writing one might find in a film like this. It might be one of the best screenplays he has ever written.
The movie cuts between two different dispositions and the past and Sorkin never misses a beat with his script.

Covering the rise of Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook and the resulting lawsuits, The Social Network is kind of like a Boogie Nights for dorks, showing how the phenomenon of "social networking" conquered the globe and made billionaires out of the young dotcommers involved. The cast are uniformly excellent, showing a warts and all account of the people involved; there are no "heroes" here, just a bunch of kids who had an intellect that made them capable of changing the world yet ironically was a massive handicap when it came to making normal human connections. Zuckerberg doesn't seem evil exactly, just a guy who thinks of himself as a rebel and pioneer, yet has spent his life and achievements shaking a fist at the world in general (and opposite sex in particular) because he wasn't …

Harvard University student Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) is dumped by his girlfriend Erica Albright, which inspires him to produce an on-campus website called Facemash. His friend Eduardo (Andrew Garfield) help finance Mark's next project, an online social networking website exclusive to Harvard University students called The Facebook. Eduardo and Mark arrange a meeting with Napster co-founder Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake). One of the best lines from Parker - "We lived on farms, then we lived in cities, and now we're going to live on the internet!"
The soundtrack was hip, performances sincere and screenplay just astounding. If only it's plot was more factual. Maybe the director inquired from the founder before creating the picture and better character background for the …
