Movies 2010: The Social Network

with 3 comments

I watched this movie on recommendation from a popular cine critic. And the movie did not  disappoint.

Based on the book ‘The Accidental Billionaires’, The Social Network is about Facebook at its very popular founder.

More than the technology or the history, ‘The Social Network’ is about  people and emotions.  And if you thought the movie will be an eulogy showering praise on FB and its founders then you will be surprised.

In the recent BusinessWeek edition the real life WinkleVoss brothers had mentioned that most scenes in the movie are exact replica of what actually happened .
The dialogues are very fast but each line has to be understood to enjoy the movie .The scenes with Sean Parker (played very well by Justin Timberlake) are really cool.

ps: If you are someone who searched for the FB masthead after watching the movie,then here it is !

  3. Good review sujai, I agree – one of the better movies of 2010. I’d not hesitate to rate it 8/10. I found the script really smart.

    And of course, which geek can resist the use of wget in a movie 🙂
