The Social Network is not the best.
David Fincher’s narcissistic baby seems to be popping up in the number one slot of everyone’s top ten list. If I had to go on record with early predictions, I’d say the Network will probably take best film, script, and director awards at the Oscars. Once again, David Fincher has shown us that he can make a movie, and he can make it well. The Social Network said the right thing at the right time and spoke with style and an unbelievably quick wit. We could spend weeks talking about the sharp language, intriguing plots and the dramatized portrait of internet tycoon Mark Zuckerberg. David Fincher knew exactly what he was doing when he decided to make a film about the legend instead of making a film about the man. The movie teeter-tottered between factual depositions and creative liberties, telling a story that was larger than any character, actual or fictional. In The Social Network, reality and fantasy moved together effortlessly.
