Waiting to see “The Social Network“?
This reviewer sums it up.
…it’s just too hard to look at a movie like this right now
with 20-20 hindsight as we’re all still living it.
“The Social Network” is a film written by Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing, and directed by David Fincher, that seeks to portray the birth and development of the social network, Facebook, along with its founder, Mark Zuckerberg.
More like “damage control,” this review does more to try to kill the messengers’ credibility, Sorkin and Fincher, and hold a torch to the herculean trials of Facebook’s founder than in taking a hard look at the film’s creative presentation of historical information as social commentary.
Time to get a ticket.
