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 Social Network is an immaculately crafted Facebook origin story and character study of Mark Zuckerberg that cuts to the heart - or lack there of - of what makes Zuckerberg (played by a razor sharp Jessie Eisenberg) such an unlikable guy.
It's an unflinching portrayal of a misanthropic, social climbing opportunist, who enriches himself by building a social network under the pretense of bringing people together and, in the process, double crosses his business partners and his only friend, Eduardo Saverin (an empathetic Andrew Garfield) when it becomes financially and socially prudent.
Whether it's in business, friendships, or in any other relationship, honesty is the trait we prize most. Its what we look for in people we either hold dear or have close dealings with.
The Social Network is an unflinching takedown of the unfeeling opportunist at it's helm. If you still have a Facebook account and have even the slightest urge to delete your account give The Social Network a watch. It might be the cure you're looking for. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that David Fincher masterfully directs Aaron Sorkin's great script and Trent Reznor's score is fantastic. I also wanna say that the whole cast was really terrific.
