Mark Zuckerburg, for better or worse, has changed the way the world communicates. That may sound hyperbolic, but it’s the truth. It just so happens that in the process of doing this, he also wound up becoming a billionaire several times over — while still in college. The Social Network ($17) may not portray the complete truth of how Facebook came to be, but that doesn’t prevent it from being one of the best films of the year. Considering it’s the brain-child of West Wing writer Aaron Sorkin and director David Fincher, whose other films include Fight Club, Seven, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, we didn’t expect anything less. Filled with lightning-fast dialog and an outstanding soundtrack by Trent Reznor and collaborator Atticus Ross, it’s a movie that will be discussed for decades to come, both in good ole fashioned conversation, and via poke.
