Did you know there are more people with genius IQs living in China than there are people of any kind living in the United States?
That can't possibly be true.
What would account for that?
Well first, an awful lot of people live in China. But, here's my question: how do you distinguish yourself in a population of people who all got 1600 on their SATs?
I didn't know they take SATs in China.
They don't. I wasn't talking about China anymore, I was talking about me.

The first fifteen minutes gives you a headache. Typical Aaron Sorkin dialogs delivered at hundred words per second that not even the actors seem to understand.
The rest of the movie is half the rise (not yet the fall) of the Facebook founder, and the other half is how people fight over money.
Guess, who comes out as the smart guy giving the intelligent repartees during these trials ?
Since Fincher is used to making films with violence and tension, he fills the void with heart thumping music and scenes like, half naked girls dancing to rap, sniffing coke from a young facebook intern's belly.
Of the same generation, Fincher would never equal in quality and subtlety with Michael Mann or Paul Thomas Anderson.
What did the Facebook guy do for humanity ? Why is he a hero ? Just because he is worth millions ? Wish they had made a film of Julian Assange.
This film ? Just sleaze.
