Director: David Fincher. Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Rashida Jones, Rooney Mara. 121 min. Rated PG-13. Drama.
The story of our times. The world of the geek - a fast-talking, emotionally-disconnected, goal-oriented genius, swimming in money but lacking the skills to maintain one friend; and the pseudo-socializing internet world, where everybody knows each other, but is devoid of the means to have a cup of tea with the other. The tightly-written screenplay will keep you at the edge your seat, accomplishing this feat with mere dialogue. Conceptually, The Social Network is the Citizen Kane of the 21st century, depicting how one dies alone in their own castle. I smell Oscars in the directing, acting and screenplay departments.
