Movie synopsis
Director David Fincher (FIGHT CLUB, SEVEN) teams with screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (THE WEST WING) to explore the meaning of success in the early 21st century from the perspectives of the technological innovators who revolutionized the way we all communicate. The year was 2003. As prohibitively expensive technology became affordable to the masses and the Internet made it easy to stay in touch with people who were halfway across the world, Harvard undergrad and computer programming wizard Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) launched a website with the potential to alter the very fabric of our society. At the time, Zuckerberg was just six years away from making his first million. But his hearty payday would come at a high price, because despite all of Zuckerberg's wealth and success, his personal life began to suffer as he became mired in legal disputes, and discovered that many of the 500 million people he had friended during his rise to the top were eager to see him fall. Chief among that growing list of detractors was Zuckerberg's former college friend Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield), whose generous financial contributions to Facebook served as the seed that helped the company to sprout. And some might argue that Zuckerberg's bold venture wouldn't have evolved into the cultural juggernaut that it ultimately became had Napster founder Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake) not spread the word about Facebook to the venture capitalists from Silicon Valley. Meanwhile, the Winklevoss twins (Armie Hammer and Josh Pence) engage Zuckerberg in a fierce courtroom battle for ownership of Facebook that left many suspecting the young entrepreneur might have let his greed eclipse his better judgment. THE SOCIAL NETWORK was based on the book THE ACCIDENTAL BILLIONAIRES by Ben Mezrich.

Editorial reviews

4 stars out of 4 -- "David Fincher's film has the rare quality of being not only as smart as its brilliant hero, but in the same way. It is cocksure, impatient, cold, exciting and instinctively perceptive."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (09/29/2010)

5 stars out of 5 -- "With a thieves den of borderline-Shakespearian characters, a wickedly literate screenplay, potent direction by David Fincher, an exceptional ensemble cast and subject matter that speaks to a generation and beyond, THE SOCIAL NETWORK is mesmerizing."
Box Office - Pete Hammond (09/17/2010)

"[A] fleet, weirdly funny, exhilarating, alarming and fictionalized look at the man behind the social-media phenomenon Facebook..."
New York Times - Manohla Dargis (10/01/2010)

"Eisenberg's career has been building to this bravura performance....With a disquieting stare and a string of acerbic comments tumbling from his mouth, he exudes neurotic intelligence."
USA Today - Claudia Puig (10/01/2010)

"[A]nchored by a perfectly pitched performance by Jesse Eisenberg, THE SOCIAL NETWORK is a barn-burner of a tale that unfolds at a splendid clip."
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan (10/01/2010)

"This account of Facebook's founder, and of the website's explosive growth, quickly lifts you to a state of exhilaration, and pretty much keeps you there for two hours."
Wall Street Journal (10/01/2010)

4 stars out of 4 -- "THE SOCIAL NETWORK is a hard-charging beast of a movie with a full tank of creative gas that keeps it humming from start to finish."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (09/30/2010)

"[T]he film's crisp, dark images, plus an eerie ambient score from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, create an unsettling divide between words and action, as if everyone's talking about unstoppable events set in motion long ago." -- Grade: A-
A.V. Club - Keith Phipps (09/30/2010)

"[A] seemingly modest picture that achieves something close to greatness the old-fashioned, slow-burning way: By telling a story with faces, dialogue and body language of all time, from awkward to swaggering."
Movieline - Stephanie Zacharek (09/27/2010)

"The production is the best studios can offer....[With] Jeff Cronenweth's fluid, sparkling cinematography and Donald Graham Burt's pinpoint-accurate production design..."
Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt (09/21/2010)

"THE SOCIAL NETWORK has everything you want in a thriller for the brain: huge doses of ego and duplicity, corporate backstabbing, and some very layered performances."
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman (09/29/2010)

4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's Eisenberg's performance that captivates -- icky and icy but strangely sympathetic."
Total Film - Andy Lowe (09/29/2010)

4 stars out of 4 -- "With surgical precision, exhilarating insight and considerable storytelling flair, they make Zuckerberg both a metaphor and a lens through which to understand contemporary culture."
Washington Post (10/01/2010)

"[T]he film's rhythmic perfection, both in terms of dialogue exchanges and in the matter of building up dramatic tension within a relatively intricate three-part time structure, makes this by far the best realised Sorkin script to date....THE SOCIAL NETWORK is a classic..."
Sight and Sound - Henry K. Miller (11/01/2010)

"Fincher's direction is a model of coherence and discipline, relying on the traditional virtues of camera placement and editing to tell the story....More than anything else, THE SOCIAL NETWORK is a feast of great talk..."
Variety - Justin Chang (09/21/2010)

4 stars out of 5 -- "Zuckerberg is played here by Jesse Eisenberg, who is simply superb as the conflicted genius, an emotionally isolated, social-climbing outsider with an unpredictable set of motivations and allegiances."
Empire - Damon Wise (10/15/2010)

4 stars out of 5 -- "This is a surprisingly energised account of the birth of Facebook and the extraordinary trajectory of its founder..."
Uncut - Michael Bonner (12/01/2010)

Included in USA Today's "10 Best Films Of 2010" -- "[P]rovocatively explored by director David Fincher and writer Aaron Sorkin..."
USA Today - Claudia Puig (12/31/2010)

Ranked #1 in Rolling Stone's "10 Best Movies Of 2010" -- "Don't be afraid of friending THE SOCIAL NETWORK. It might just open your eyes beyond your computer screen."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (12/24/2010)

Included in Roger Ebert's "The Best Films of 2010" -- "Some films observe fundamental shifts in human nature, and this is one of them."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (12/16/2010)

A classic Golden Globe winner

"The Social Network" is a 2010 drama about the founding of the social networking website Facebook and the resulting lawsuits. The film was directed by David Fincher ("The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button"), and features an ensemble cast including Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Brenda Song, Armie Hammer, Max Minghella, Rashida Jones, Joseph Mazzello, and Rooney Mara. David Fincher's film is a stunning tale of a new breed of cultural insurgent: a punk genius who sparked a revolution and changed the face of human interaction for a generation, and perhaps forever. Shot through with emotional brutality and unexpected humor, this superbly crafted film chronicles the formation of Facebook and the battles over the ownership that followed upon the website's ubfathonable success. With a complex and incisive screenplay by Aaron Sorkin (based upon the novel "The Accidental Billionaires" by Ben Mezrich), and a brilliant cast featuring Jesse Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg, Andrew Garfield as his best friend Eduardo Saverin and Justin Timberlake as Napster co-founder Sean Parker, "The Social Network" bears witness to the birth of an idea that rewove the fabric of society, even as it unraveled the friendships of its creators. The movie went on to win 4 Golden Globe awards; Best Motion Picture (Drama), Best Director (Fincher), Best Screenplay (Sorkin) and Best Original Score (Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross). It also recieved acting nominations for Eisenberg and Garfield. This 2-disc DVD set features the complete movie along with alternate audio commentaries on disc one, and several additional bonus features on disc two, including a unique 4-part feature-length documentary entitled "How Did They Ever Make A Movie Of Facebook?", created exclusively for this DVD. "The Social Network" is a fine example of the new wave of 21st century filmmaking.

What a Wild Ride!

This 2010 movie which I am reviewing before the 2010 Academy Awards is literally like being on a wild roller coaster ride, veering one way and then the other. For a 60 year old, I had to put on the subtitles just to keep up with the fast talking dialog of the script which was planned that way, I am sure. And it is a brilliant script by Aaron Sorkin, who won a Golden Globe, and brilliant direction by David Fincher, who also won the Golden Globe.

The plot, of course, is the story of Facebook, which has made Marc Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) a multi-billionaire in less than half a decade. In the first scenes, he is a revolting, insulting idiot with a girl, Erica Albright, that he is trying to date at Harvard in the early 2000s. He gets into trouble with the College when he writes a program comparing Erica's looks with another girl and then another girl with another girl and so on. But obviously his computer skills are off the chart.

Enter the Winkelvoss twins--Cameron and Tyler(Armie Hammer and Josh Pence), who enlist Marc to write the computer language for their idea of a program called the Harvard Connection, which is the origin of Facebook. Instead, Marc steals the idea, and with his only friend and roommate at Harvard, Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield) and his $1000 start the Facebook company. Success is at every corner, and the members grow. But there is no money because it doesn't cost anything to be a Facebook member. Advertising income is an idea, but Marc doesn't like it.

Enter Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake), who as the bankrupt executive of Napster, has all the connections to take the infant company to San Francisco and help it explode to what it is today with his banking and legal connections.

You have to see the movie to see how it all turns out. You can keep up with it if you completely concentrate without distractions on the rapid plot and conversations. It is also a good exposee of our legal system and how people can be tricked and sold out in Corporate America.

A second dvd in this package tells in detail how the movie was made--very interesting! We learn how Armie Hammer's face was sometimes superimposed on Josh Pence's body to make them look more like twins. We learn that Aaron Sorkin has a small part as a possible investor in Facebook. We learn how they controlled Eduardo's girlfriend when she lit a scarf causing a fire in his apartment while he was on an important call with Marc. And much, much more. In fact, it is more than you might want to know.

Totally Entertaining

LOVE this movie. The dialogue is very sharp, witty and so well written you feel like you're in the same room with the characters listening to them. This is a truly fascinating story of how the most popular website in the world came into fruition. Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield create such a palpable chemistry onscreen. Everyone should experience this movie, most especially if you have a Facebook, (which you most likely do).

social network movie dvd set

the movie is pretty well written even if the real Sean Parker doesn't think so. The dvd set has tons of interviews with all the actors and they are very candid. the behind the scene stuff on the sets and the story and the writer himself are quite interesting.
