The Social Network ★★★★★

My fourth watch.
I can't believe it took me four viewings to finally arrive at the correct rating. I don't think I can comprehend the number of levels this movie works on, especially in terms of its screenplay, and I don't think I can even begin to try to describe how deeply relevant and accurate this film is as a take on the workings of social experience in the 21st century. The vindictive, misogynistic, lonely pretentions of every online troll, high school kid, and tech company CEO are woven into the DNA of this story, along with their roots, their consequences, and their sad truths. Even though so much of it is exaggerated or fictional, it all rings so impossibly true. This movie is a fucking masterpiece.
