Facebook. Currently this review is getting posted on it to recieve a hearty amount of five views. But beside my substantial popularity, this social network is the topic of yes, “The Social Network.” David Fincher delivers what could be an early definition of this young decade. It is the story of Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder and creator of Facebook. It tells of the beginning of Facebook as well as the legal turmoil that Zuckerberg faces including his best friend and a few college pricks who introduced a prototype of what is now known as Facebook. The most engaging part of this film is just how the cases shift and move throughout the film; how Zuckerberg screws his friends and the others in order to progress and move to the top. It raises the question: What does it mean to me to get to the top? Zuckerberg played wonderfully by Jesse Eisenberg was willing to take out his best friend Eduardo Saverin who is played by our future Spider-man, Andrew Garfield. Eisenberg and Garfield move the film, giving it that stellar character development that even though essential is played out so wonderfully by director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin that you just can’t help but to dive into who these characters really are and that even by their outward appearance and their actions taken are still those two college kids trying to get into clubs instead of writing the other a check. I also applaud Justin Timberlake who easily gives his best acting performance to date as well as Rooney Mara as Erica Albright who is techinically the inspiration for the entire thing. “The Social Network” is gold and should be seen as it will most definitely be seen later on Oscar ballots for many different categories including Best Picture.
