List of The Social Network Reviews

Ratings:5/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive

“The Social Network”, written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Fincher, is my favourite film this year. It’s also one of the smartest films I’ve seen recently, and it’s packed with rapid-fire dialogue that’s so rich, so clever, you’ll want to see the film a second time to enjoy it all over again. The dialogue is so sharp and the soundtrack so haunting, they give the film an edge-of-the-seat quality that’s hard to explain. Ultimately “The Social Network” is a riveting tale of friendship, trust and betrayal. While the film’s biggest strength is unquestionably its genius writing; Fincher directs with a confident hand, delivering a visually crisp palette to match Sorkin’s biting lines. I’m going with five out of five for “The Social Network”. It’s the best film I’ve seen this year — a smart film for a smart audience. I recommend you catch it at the cinema right away!

The high point of The Social Network is its super screenplay  where every dialogue becomes a quotable quote. The exchange between the lead characters is witty and vibrant, carrying forth the drama with a throbbing intensity. And the performances are simply splendid. Jesse Eisenberg’s portrayal of Mark Zuckerberg is absolutely riveting. For the actor treads the fine line between good and evil with supreme balance and he never does trip, not even for a minute. Andrew Garfield’s Eduardo is adorable, adding flesh and blood to the best buddy syndrome, while Justin Timberlake’s Sean Parker proves that the singer needs to urgently shift focus from the stage to the screen. He’s mercurial, magical and deliciously mean. Just don’t miss this one and do ponder on the million dollar question: Would you `unfriend’ a guy like Zuckerberg on your FB account? Do we hear a deafening `No’?

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is The Social Network — a David Fincher masterpiece that dares you to choose a side, and to then stick by it. Aaron Sorkin’s rapier-sharp script snakes through allegiances with such glorious disloyalty that everything is questioned, and everything must be. Including how much of ourselves we end up — not losing or finding, but investing — in a website that doesn’t care about us.This is a film highlighted by its dialogue, The West Wing writer Sorkin bettering his own stellar body of work as characters here engage in tremendously intelligent talk, as uber-caustic as it is uber-cool. The Social Network is a mammoth accomplishment, a feat of craft and smarts and extreme generational significance. The maker — with Sorkin and Reznor and that cast — deserves to take a bow.For this is the history we’re living today.

The Social Network is one of the best films I’ve seen this year. It simply and surely reinstates the power of writing. It illustrates that when it comes to compelling cinema, the biggest and most expensive special effects can’t match human drama and emotions. This film is a pleasure to both watch and listen to. And when it’s over, you just want to go back in again, to catch all that you may have missed the first time. The Social Network isn’t really a film about Facebook. You will savor its brilliance even if you know nothing about social networking. This is a story about basic human frailty and emotion. Don’t miss it.
