The Social Network

The Social Network ★★★★½

Endlessly riveting and involving; The Social Network is a dense and gorgeous character study. Bursting at the seams with fantastic performances, incredible cinematography, a hypnotic soundtrack by Trent Reznor, and pitch-perfect direction by David Fincher; All of those aspects are topped off with a screenplay for the ages written by Aaron Sorkin.

Honestly, what more could you want? Truly, The Social Network is one of the finest films of the modern era, and it's about our time. Our troubles, our disconnect, our relationships with others, our egos, our ambitions; David Fincher has crafted a character study that is beyond compare in the 21st century.

It's also one of those films that leaves you slack-jawed in amazement at the sheer prowess in regards to all of the technical aspects. Let's face it, Digital isn't all that bad. The Social Network is a prime example that finely-tuned and immaculate images don't always need to be committed to celluloid.

It's one of my favorite Fincher films, and that's saying quite a bit.
