A timeless story of friendship, loyalty, greed and betrayal (by Monotreme02)
I just want to get this out there right away and put the cards on the table so to speak: When I first heard about it, I had very little faith in this project. I was stupefied, confused by the thought of what attracted all this talent to this seemingly trivial story to begin with? Why would David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin possibly be interested in the story of the founding of Facebook? Surely they could have found something more important, more meaningful to apply their efforts to. After seeing the film, though, I realized that, of course, Fincher and Sorkin knew what they were doing all along. <more>
And furthermore that labeling this as "The Facebook movie" is really an insult to what Sorkin and Fincher were trying to and have succeeded in achieving with this film.First and foremost, I have to take a step back and admire this film as a technical achievement. Despite seeming to be a departure for Fincher in terms of content and subject matter – which it is and then again isn't – the film is very clearly and undeniably a Fincher film. Re-teaming with his Fight Club director of photography Jeff Cronenweth, Fincher manages to create and capture that really unique look all of his films have. The cinematography is absolutely gorgeous – once again, Fincher proves that he is probably getting the best results in digital photography out of any other director working in that medium, and this film, shot on the RED One camera, looks absolutely beautiful, from the framing to the camera movement to the lighting and on to the look and the feel of the depth of field the RED captures.Sorkin's script is also an impeccable achievement and showcases, once again just what a genius this man really is. From a structural standpoint it employs a very effective use of a framing device – the Zuckerberg lawsuit depositions, which introduce the various characters and lead into "flashbacks" of the events being discussed. It really lends the film a Rashomon air and intensifies the mystery behind the Zuckerberg character and what exactly transpired in the creation of this phenomenon, Facebook. Sorkin also demonstrates an acute awareness of character construction, and manages to create a loathsome protagonist we hate and are frustrated by but yet we still end up sympathizing with. Most of all, though, it's a showcase of Sorkin's impeccable writing style and knack for writing dialogue with a very unique sound and rhythm. I saw Fincher refer to it as "Sorkinese" in an interview, and this is a really good description – it is certainly very unique to Sorkin and the scripts he has written, and it is also certainly a completely unique language – one which normal people in our real world do not speak, but that just sounds great on screen. The rapid-fire, overlapping dialogue remains one of the highlights of the film for me, and the script is certainly a shoo-in for Oscar consideration.The film is also a rare showcase of pure acting prowess, and features a very interesting and eclectic cast of young actors stepping out of their comfort zones and delivering some truly phenomenal work. The casting of the film is quite a departure for Fincher, who has enough clout to gather the biggest names working in the business. Instead, he opted to go for a cast of relative unknowns or up-and-comers, and really make stars out of them. First and foremost to be mentioned is Jesse Eisenberg, an actor I have personally been a fan of since The Squid and the Whale in 2005 and one whose work I have continued to enjoy since then. However, no matter how good he was in those previous films, none of his previous performances compare to his amazing achievement on this film. Stripping away his signature goofiness and neurosis, Eisenberg plays Zuckerberg as a cold, calculated and determined genius who knows what he wants, is very confident and forward-looking and will stop at nothing to get it. His counter in the film is Saverin, played brilliantly by Andrew Garfield, a name we will be hearing a lot more of of in the next few years: Saverin is a far more sympathetic character, more warm and inviting – these traits only increase the impact of the tragedy of Zuckerberg's betrayal of their friendship.Many pundits and commentators have designated this to be the "film that defines our generation", and truly a "product of its time" in the most literal sense of the word. However, I'm not sure I like this designation, especially since once you watch the film, you very quickly realize that this isn't a story about the founding of Facebook; it's really a story of friendship, ambition and betrayal, a character study of this fascinating individual whose actions in the film happen to depict the invention of an online social networking site that gets out of hand and puts all of his relationships, especially that with his best friend and business partner, in jeopardy. All of the themes mentioned above are universal and can be applied to a number of fantastic films and works of fiction over the centuries, and that, I think, is the greatest achievement of the film.
Can the "Facebook movie" be one of the best of the year? Yep, it sure can... (by tsquared226)
"The Social Network" was an incredibly engaging film that, while mainly revolving around the invention of Facebook and all the problems that the creators encountered both before and after all was said and done , really focused in on ideas and feelings that can be and are universally felt through all people, the primary example being trying to fit in. Everyone wants to be accepted I for one have never met a single human being that has wanted to be a loner , and some will do whatever it takes to get that sort of attention which tends to lead into bad consequences . In a year <more>
where movies have received some of the lowest critical ratings as well as box office earnings in recent memory, "The Social Network" was, while haunting, truly refreshing and ultimately a triumph in all aspects, whether it be considering the acting, script, or directing. It was a fantastic movie that shouldn't just be among the best of the year; it's so much more important than that. It defines the entire social networking generation, and that is one hell of an accomplishment. Everyone can relate to it one way or another, and that makes it one of the must-see pictures of the year.
Fincher's best since Fight Club (by Stevendcravens)
I have been a fan of David Fincher ever since I saw Se7en when I was 13. I saw all of his films the following week and not one of them disappointed me. That was back in 2003. I loved Zodiac and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button as well, but he really knocked it out of the park with this one. I was fortunate enough to see The Social Network at a screening on 9/16/10 for my college. Eisenberg, Hammer and Sorkin were there and did a Q and A after the film. It was a GREAT experience. All of them seemed excited about the film and rightfully so. The film brilliantly tells the story of college <more>
students who go through hell with each other over the credit for Facebook and the damage that comes to all of them because of it. The acting and dialogue were flawless. Eisenberg, Garfield and even Timberlake churn out performances that should get them serious attention come award time. Fincher's direction is also perfect. you can always tell a Fincher film when you see it because his visual style is so striking and The Social Network is no exception. When this is released, please go see it and watch a film that defines a generation and what the world has become.
Excellent dialog. Superb directing job by Fincher. (by sug2763)
I went into this film with little or no hope. By the time the movie was over, with the Beatles' "Baby, You're A Rich Man" playing over the end credits, I had a huge smile on my face. I literally cannot wait to watch this again during it's wide release. The lighting and camera work here is beautiful, every scene and sequence is a joy to watch. If Fincher hasn't already proved himself time and time again with his great films, this one might be the one to seal the deal for him. One sequence in the middle of the film features a boring rowboat race. Fincher sets up the <more>
photography so beautifully, that it feels like you're watching a painting come to life.All the performances are excellent. Jesse Eisenberg plays Mark Zuckerberg as a fast-paced, nerdy, kind of jerk-ish attitude, and Andrew Garfield is his best friend, Eduardo, who at the beginning didn't mean much to me, but I found myself rooting for him by the end. Justin Timberlake is easily the weakest one of the three, but he still does a decent job.And oh, man the soundtrack. Trent Reznor deserves some kind of recognition for this. It is amazing. A lot of people say the movie sounds boring. They cite "The invention of facebook" as an uninteresting topic. I say don't believe that talk, and check out this interesting, funny, thrill ride by Fincher and co.
Amazingly directed, Greatly Scripted, and Impeccably acted. What more can you ask for in a movie? (by Loving_Silence)
I am a big of David Fincher's work, when I realized he was going to make a film about the creation of Facebook, I was really excited. I came in the movie with huge expectations, and hopeful that it would turn out great. I have to say, I was impressed, my expectations were not only met, but they were blown away. The Social Network easily rivals Fincher's previous works like "Fight Club" or "Se7en".Aesthetically the film is very beautiful, its very "Fincher". It has a very perversely attractive appeal, a glimmering awfulness, as it was lit from within. <more>
David Fincher deserves an Oscar for Best Director, he is extremely underrated by the Academy. Hopefully this film will finally bring Fincher in a new light.The actors did an amazing job, they should all be recognized for their work in this movie. Jesse Eisenberg did an amazing job playing Mark Zuckerberg. Hopefully he will not be known as the next Michael Cera anymore. With this film, he established himself as a serious actor and he will have a bright future ahead of him. Andrew Garfield also did an amazing job as the co-founder of Facebook and the best friend of Zuckerberg. He deserves an Oscar nom and I hope we'll be seeing more of him in the future. The rest of the cast did a fine job and also hoping seeing them in the future.I recommend this movie to everyone, it deals with betrayal and greed. The movie definitely deserves an Academy award for Best Picture. It is extremely revalent for our times and many years to come. I consider this movie is a fine piece of modern filmmaking and probably will be considered as a classic in the future. So if you're not doing anything tonight, you should spent an evening in theaters to watch The Social Network.
So there I was, sitting in the cinema waiting to see 'Inception' greeting every belated trailer with a groan, each one prolonging the time till I could finally see one of the most anticipated movies of the year and there it was, I turned to one of my friends "my god..a film about facebook?!.." To say I was skeptical for those few moments would be an understatement, I was almost angry, like a footballer who releases an autobiography 5 years after he starts his career I just didn't understand the timing of it, who cares anyway?"I think this is Finchers new movie <more>
actually""DAVID Fincher? He's made a film about facebook?!"Almost immediately 'Social Network' became a movie that I needed to see. David Fincher is one of the true masters of delivering some of the greatest films of the past few decades. The gritty 'Se7en' and the intelligent 'Fight Club' had been two of my favourite movies growing up, the latter of which I had the privilege of studying in college quite in depth and although I missed 'Benjamin Button' only god knows why it took me until 2013 to watch! I had thoroughly enjoyed the enigmatic 'Zodiac' as well.'Social Network' became my favourite Fincher title almost immediately. It is one of those rare works that feels so effortless in its brilliance which is due to the incredible work from both Fincher and Sorkin in creating this modern masterpiece, the way I see it the film relies heavily upon three aspects which are executed with perfection.First of all, the score for this film is sensational. I've always been a huge fan of Trent Reznor & Nine Inch Nails but with his partnership with Atticus Ross and his ongoing collaborations with Fincher also see 'Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' I can only see them becoming the most formidable artists in the industry, every minor note resonates perfectly throughout the film and creates a beautiful texture on top of an already excellent piece of work.Secondly, Sorkin's razor sharp screenplay is something a director can only dream of receiving, the dialogue never falters and it is always witty, sincere and hilarious all in one which can also be attributed to the performances of the actors involved But most of all, the atmosphere that Fincher is able to create visually is stunning, huge credit must also go to long time collaborator Jeff Cronenweth, together their formidable partnership and undoubted perfect understanding of each other's work is clearly the factor behind this film being one of the best movies of the past decadeGreat performances from Eisenberg, Garfield and Timberlake also help this movie stand head and shoulders above most and as one of the most promising young actresses in the business, Rooney Mara is given her first chance to truly show her quality in a small role.It's difficult to say where 'Social Network' will stand when we look back on Finchers body of work but one things for sure, if it isn't seen as one of his truly great masterpieces then he is sure to become one of, if not the most powerful director in the industry for years to come.
Director David Fincher's The Social Network stars Jessie Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg, and depicts how he became the billionaire behind the popular Facebook website. We start with the humble origin of the site's forerunner as a prank Mark pulls after breaking up with then girlfriend Erica Rooney Mara . This catches the attention of the school's social elites who pitch their site to Mark only to have him leave the project and launch Thefacebook, a site eerily similar to their concept. But before anyone can grasp the situation, Facebook becomes a phenomenon. Along for the bumpy <more>
ride are Eduardo Saverin Andrew Garfield , Mark's best friends and FB co-founder, as well as Napster founder Sean Parker played by Justin Timeberlake .Tradition dictates that a film's protagonist, or hero, needs to be likable. When the audience isn't rooting for the hero, the movie usually falls apart. Not true for The Social Network, a movie that thrives on the disdain achieved by Mark Zuckerberg in this account. From the start he is overtly blunt, rude, and careless with no signs of remorse. Does this sound like a guy who would donate $100 million to a public school system? The Social Network chronicles Marks efforts to hijack ideas and leave out friends. It's a story about an antagonist.Great performances abound. Jessie Eisdenberg is a distant, fast-talking, smart alec. Andrew Garfield has a fantastic scene where his easy going Eduardo loses his cool, and for once Justin Timberlake doesn't suck! I'm sure Sean and Justin mutually agree to his lady's man charlatan portrayal. But the fun doesn't stop there. The score by Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor's is reminiscent of Tangerine Dream and it lifts many scenes. I think some people will be letdown to find that the story of Facebook is framed by legal hearings but there are some clever screenplay elements put into play by scribe Aaron Sorkin. The Social Network is billed as a dark comedy, but I found it to be a straight drama. Almost every movie regardless of the subject has a lighthearted moment and that's what I see in The Social Network; it's a drama that happens to contain some humor. For instance it would behoove you stay on the good side of a twin who describes him as "6'5" 220 and there's 2 of me".There are times where the use of soft focus goes to the extreme and the mise-en-scène masks drug use. Heck, college students even sub out the f-bomb for some truly awkward PG-13 retention dialog. Cutting from an R to grab a PG-13 for assumed profits has never been this bizarre.Even without showing a dollar, The Social Network is a far more timely and engaging tale of greed and woe than last week's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, but still it would have been nice for the film to clarify how Facebook became so preposterously overvalued. After all, this is a move about some people you came into money and the audience never understand where the money came from. Is it the movie of this generation? Perhaps but that would be because this generation can't make an income from inventing a tangible product. My distaste for Facebook may be obvious, but I "like this".
Intelligent, organized, efficient: the way Zuckerberg would do it. (by coronanotbudweiser)
When I first saw the trailer to The Social Network during the premiere of Inception, I didn't know what to expect. My first thoughts were definitely something along the lines of "really? they're making a movie about Facebook? How horrid!". But then again, I was wrong to profile Scott Pilgrim's trailer as boring and not for me, so I gave The Social Network a try. I was glad I did.Celebrated Fight Club director David Fincher takes a look at this story who better to guide you through a tale of friends and foes, and really, alienation . The movie is fast paced throughout; <more>
there is not a dull moment I can pick out after freshly seeing it. The development of the Facebook project is well blended with the development of the lawsuits against Zuckerberg- played by a keen Jesse Eisenberg who really delivers a top-notch performance as the world's youngest billionaire, something that could even be dare I say it? Oscar worthy. His co-stars Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake deliver great acting as well, which in Timberlake's case is merit worthy as it disproves the usual theory that not one soul in the music industry can act well.Fincher's beautiful way of telling a story, his unique way of telling a side plot rowing tournament for example, and his great flow of story and cinematography along with the great direction/acting make the Social Network a pleasing tale that you'll most likely want to see more than once; a pleasing tale that you'll most likely become a fan of on Facebook.
Being a member of Facebook myself, it was right that I should see the film about the creation of it, from Oscar winning writer Aaron Sorkin The West Wing and Golden Globe winning, and Oscar and BAFTA nominated director David Fincher Se7en, Fight Club, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button . Basically on an Autumn night in 2003, nineteen year old Harvard student and computer genius Mark Zuckerberg Zombieland's Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated Jesse Eisenberg spends most of his time in the virtual world. He invented a little website in his school called "Facemash" where <more>
people are given a choice of two faces to vote which of the two is the hottest, and this rapidly has thousands of hits. The school authorities have a word with Mark about it, but his high hitting website gets the attention of Silicon Valley's Winklevoss twins Tyler and Cameron both Armie Hammer who want his help in creating a new big website. Mark is initially up for the idea, but this meeting with the twins only fuels his ideas for his own big website, a social networking website for the school called "The Facebook" to make friends, add personal information including relationship status , exchange messages, spread your opinions and much more. With the funding of Eduardo Saverin BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated Andrew Garfield, who I knew was replacing Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man , the website is officially put online in 2004, and very quickly it becomes a big talking point in the school. With the high hits Mark and Eduardo decide to pass the website to a few other schools, and the attention increases more than anyone would have thought, even getting the attention of Napster founder Sean Parker Justin Timberlake . Sean is offering to make "The Facebook", shortened to "Facebook", even bigger, turning it into an official worldwide social network earning not just profiles, but big money. Of course the financial success of Facebook has a problem in the form of the Winklevoss twins, who are campaigning with the law against Mark, claiming that he stole their idea, with emails and phone calls as evidence. Eduardo also filed a lawsuit for reducing his share in the company, in the end, Eduardo does get a good settlement and the credit he deserves as co-creator of Facebook, and the twins didn't get what they want, and Zuckerberg continues his success. Also starring Joseph Mazzello as Dustin Moskovitz, Rooney Mara as Erica Albright, Rashida Jones as Marylin Delpy, Brenda Song as Christy Lee, Max Minghella as Divya Narendra, Patrick Mapel as Chris Hughes and John Getz as Sy. Since the creation in 2003 and official launch in 2004, Mark Zuckerberg has become the youngest billionaire in history, and deservedly so, it is nice to be seeing a film about really recent and global news, and about a phenomena that has changed the world of knowledge and socialising. Eisenberg plays the young Zuckerberg really well, the supporting cast, especially Garfield and Timberlake are great as well, the direction is really focused, and the script is fantastically crafted with dazzling wordplay and interesting subjects of loyalty and greed. I could just about follow the legal lawsuit stuff, and for me it was most interesting to see how Facebook and all its components were created and became a technological advancement, first time I watched this I admit I thought it perhaps overrated, but having seen it properly it is indeed a defining film for it era, a terrific biographical drama. It won the Oscars for Best Editing, Best Music for Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross and Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published, it was nominated for Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Cinematography and Best Sound Mixing, it won the BAFTAs for Best Editing and Best Adapted Screenplay, and it was nominated for Best Film, and it won the Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture - Drama, Best Original Score and Best Screenplay - Motion Picture. Very good!
