This is a stupendous movie, one I recommend with gusto. It tells the tale of the creation of Facebook by Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg and the subsequent power struggles that ensued as the company grew, rapidly adding millions of users along the way.
The film could not have been made without the special direction of David FIncher, who has a staccato, tornado touch. The Social Network will become a cult film, and I think it has a very good chance of becoming picture of the year....it is certainly best movie to date this year.
