Directed by David Fincher
Based on the book "The Accidental Billionaires"
by Ben Mezrich
Looking at the three reviews so far you would think I'm very generous with the scores, but this is not true, I have just been fortunate to have just seen a very good movie and recently read a very good book. This movie, 'The Social Network', has been receiving unprecedented praise and this naturally leads one to ask 'is it worth it?'. Well, a reserved yes. Reserved because I can't say that it will become an influential film, it certainly may become a classic film, but besides from a sharper (read quick intelligence) dialogue it doesn't offer anything new or open up new directions for cinema - aspects I would consider for overwhelming praise. What the film does do, however, is bring together its cinematography, screenplay, music, acting and all other cinematic elements in such an intelligent and entertaining way that is rarely seen in Hollywood movies.
