YOU DON'T GET TO 500 MILLION FRIENDS WITHOUT MAKING A FEW ENEMIES

Not a lot to say here. A few months ago, I got the urge to see The Social Network once again - somehow just knowing I'd like it better this go around. I'd only seen it one other time and liked it well enough that first time. I was right - I definitely dug it quite a bit this time; enough to make it an entry to my personal list. The only comment I'll make regarding the film itself is that I'm baffled by how dark Fincher is able to make a movie about Facebook. I think the score from Trent Reznor helped a lot to dampen the atmosphere and give the film a real feeling of gloom. 










RATING: 8/10

  1. A film that I enjoyed watching, but one where I felt myself loathing just about everyone in it..
