There’s been tons of talk about this film and it being the movie of the year. It’s got all the elements to do so: topical subject (the birth of Facebook), awesome director (David Fincher), ace writer (Aaron Sorkin), hot young cast (Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake) and a kicking soundtrack courtesy of Trent Reznor. I found Social Network to be in a word, entertaining. Some dodgy “twin” effects and clear liberties taken with the characterizations of Zuckerberg et al. nevertheless result in a watch-able and interesting film. Still, I wouldn’t break out the Oscar congratulations just yet though.
