This review is from: The Social Network (Two-Disc Collector's Edition) (DVD)
I didn't quite understand it at first. "A movie about facebook? Why?" I thought to myself. It seemed like a boring tale -- boy creates website, website goes big, boy makes billions of dollars. However, the tale is much more intriguing. This is the story of a no-holds-barred, out-for-blood internet domination.
There are very few films I will watch repeatedly, and this is one of them. In fact, the first time I watched it was late one night, and I watched it again the very next morning. Jesse Eisenberg's portrayal of facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is neurotic and spot-on. Justin Timberlake plays a slimy Sean Parker. Andrew Garfield is amazing as Eduardo Saverin, and is really the only character in the drama to elicit any real sympathy from the audience.
If you haven't seen The Social Network yet, you definitely should. I can honestly see why it was hailed as "film of the year."
