We Love… The Social Network

With a biting Aaron Sorkin script and an ominous Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross soundtrack, The Social Network captures the zeitgeist with intensity, precision and dread.

Directed by David Fincher The Social Network tells the story of Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook. Fincher uses the dark halls of Harvard and a palette of grays to paint Zuckerberg’s lonely world, while Sorkin’s script pays little attention to accuracy and uses quick-witted dialog to frame Zuckerberg as an awkward technology megalomaniac. More pointed social commentary than a biopic, the film and its characters act as metaphor for a contemporary generation that is linked to a lonely digital age. In the end, Fincher and Sorkin create a cautionary tale for the here and now and their Zuckerberg stands as both a tragic hero and revolutionary.

The Social Network is out now in the US and in UK cinemas this Friday.
