They all laughed at college nerd Mark Zuckerberg, whose idea for a social-networking site made him a billionaire. And they all laughed at the idea of a Facebook movie--except writer Aaron Sorkin and director David Fincher, merely two of the more extravagantly talented filmmakers around. Sorkin and Fincher's breathless picture, The Social Network, is a fast and witty creation myth about how Facebook grew from Zuckerberg's insecure geek-at-Harvard days into a phenomenon with 500 million users. Sorkin frames the movie around two lawsuits aimed at the lofty but brilliant Zuckerberg (deftly played by Adventureland's Jesse Eisenberg): a claim that he stole the idea from Ivy League classmates, and a suit by his original, now slighted, business partner (Andrew Garfield). The movie follows a familiar rise-and-fall pattern, with temptation in the form of a sunny California Beelzebub (an expert Justin Timberlake as former Napster founder Sean Parker) and an increasingly tangled legal mess. Emphasizing the legal morass gives Sorkin and Fincher a chance to explore how unsocial this social-networking business can be, although the irony seems a little facile. More damagingly, the film steers away from the prickly figure of Zuckerberg in the latter stages--and yet Zuckerberg presents the most intriguing personality in the movie, even if the movie takes pains to make us understand his shortcomings. Fincher's command of pacing and his eye for the clean spaces of Aughts-era America are bracing, and he can't resist the technical trickery involved in turning actor Armie Hammer into privileged Harvard twins (Hammer is letter-perfect). Even with its flaws, The Social Network is a galloping piece of entertainment, a smart ride with smart people… who sometimes do dumb things. --Robert Horton

Thank God I did though. I should have had more faith in David Fincher - he's a smart enough film maker to realise that this movie would only ever work if it focused on the genuinely extraordinary, which in this case means the birth of a new way of interacting, and the personalities that brought it into existence. This would be more than enough material to make an interesting film, but Aaron (West Wing) Sorkin's script also brings in issues of class, the generational divide, intelligence, money and the new economy. What results is a riveting, fast-paced film about the excitement of new ideas, the intoxicating rush of the succesful dot com, and the almighty high of billions of dollars, all channelled through something which all of us are familiar with and can relate to. Nothing less, then, than that rarest of beasts, a film which successfully addresses The Times In Which We Live.
The film's (already famous) opening scene shows Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) being dumped by his girlfriend, and from this we immediately learn several key things - Zuckerberg is possessed of an unapologetic, almost Asperger's-level intelligence; and he is terrible at human interaction.Read more ›
The answer would be a resounding no from many, particularly from the older generations, but they would be rewardingly surprised how exquisitely crafted, engaging, entertaining and intellectually satisfying ‘The Social Network’ is, thanks to a magnificent script from Aaron Sorkin and to another master class in filmmaking from David Fincher, one of the most creative directors of our time.
The key to its considerable success at the box office is largely attributable to the way the plot uncompromisingly oscillates between the past and the present, instead of just chronicling a story from its beginning to the end, thereby keeping the audience arrested and absorbed throughout.
Jesse Eisenberg, for the first time in a significant, leading role, delivers a superb performance as if he was born to play this character, while Fincher exacts commendable performances from the rest of the young talents, particularly from Justin Timberlake, who appears here to be in better control than in his previous appearances.
Above all, Sorkin and Fincher commendably achieve the perfect balance between portraying genius at work, which is the film’s premise, and the youthful melodramatics that carry the usual baggage of nerdy, technological jargon, so that the film is universally appreciable. ‘The Social Network’ is surprisingly funny in an intelligent way, although not as hilarious as the ‘Big Bang Theory’!
Finally, it is refreshing to see Sony Pictures getting behind a film that is worth talking about, instead of carrying on with the trash they usually file up at Columbia!
The plot revolves around Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) and the other Harvard University students who were the brainchild's of "The Facebook" the social networking website now claiming nearly half a billion members. Zuckerberg narcissistic portrayal by Eisenberg is superb and has the word Oscar stamped all over it. He captures all the arrogance, autism, ambition and alienation which led this genius programmer to start by crashing Harvard's entire IT system to eventually constructing the ubiquitous Facebook created according to the film as an angry response to being dumped by a girl. The "true" story centres on the fact that Zuckerberg's programming skills attract the attention of the Winklevoss twins (Armie Hammer and Josh Pence), who are the sons of a very wealthy business consultancy founder Dr.Read more ›
