Film: The Social Network Click for more info

Despite what those in the media have said about this film please make no mistake: The Social Network is only interesting because it deals with the phenomenon that is Facebook. It isn't particularly thrilling, well-acted or highly produced but nevertheless manages to grab your attention because - let's face it - we're all Facebook's bitches.

But that's by the by. At the end of the day the relevance of the film does make it and the story it tells compelling to watch, and the two hours fly by as we discover (or at least get an idea of) what happened during those early years. Ultimately the film is about betrayal and manipulation; it's actually quite refreshing to be told a story that didn't necessarily have a happy ending, but I guess that's what happens if you tell a true (and possibly ongoing) story.

Anyway if you have an inkling of an interest in Facebook (and since you're online you probably do), I think you may enjoy The Social Network. Recommended.

  1. I like it, the ending annoyed me though. Was well written but somewhat nondescript in ways. I thought the acting from the leads was good.
