The Social Network (2010)
Masterfully crafted character piece
The Social Network is a character piece about the man who created a website which more than 500 million people currently use, and the relationships destroyed along the way. Set through scenes paralleling two legal suits, the film follows the founding of Facebook, but more importantly person behind it. The film begins as Zuckerberg arrives to his dorm after his girlfriend breaks up with him. He sits down and writes the formula for facemash.com which ultimately shuts down Harvard's server and gets him recognized. After meeting with the Winklevoss Twins, he agrees to write a formula for a social network, which he sets aside while he creates Facebook. Jessie Eisenburg stars as Mark Zuckerberg, a Harvard student, who lets success go to his head. Fueled by jealousy and greed, Zuckerberg is willing to destroy his relationship with Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield) just to be known. The Social Network had a great sense of character which is fleshed out through an expertly crafted script. Arron Sorkin writes a film so in depth, understanding, and witty it truth is painful. An understanding is had that Zuckerbeg is also a kid who wants to be know. David Finchers notoriously meticulous direction gives nothing but the best performances from all the actors involved in the film. While providing standard Fincher elements (the camera goes through a railing and a window), the film also show Fincher at the top of his career (ex. the rowing scene). Jessie Eisenberg's performance is excellent, but the stand out actor is Andrew Garfiel playing Eduardo Saverin, Zuckerbergs college friend. Sporting an American accent Garfield plays his character so right and his chemistry with Eisenberg is all to real. That being said, this is the type of movie you watch for performances and every actor gives a noteworthy performance. The Social Network stresses that the decisions we make at a young age-fueled by jealousy, greed, rage- can have a monumental impact on our futures. From: http://filmwatchreviews.blogspot.com/

Never since Jean-Pierre Léaud performance as Antoine Doinel in Les quatre cents coups (The 400 Blows) has there been such a predict performance by a leading actor. Never since Ditto Mantel's, A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints has there been such a unique and breath-taking style of filming. Never since Le scaphandre et le papillon has there been such beautiful cinematography in a film.
