Critics reviews

Its strength does not reside so much in the prophecies nestled inside it, but in the way it understands how a friendship can crumble under the weight of ambition, betrayal and jealousy.

One of my favorite movies, partly because Zuckerberg and I are rough contemporaries; when he was at Harvard, coding the night away in his dorm room, I was just a few states over doing the same thing. Looking over his shoulder in the film feels nostalgic for me. But it’s also a tightly written movie, one that plays almost like a thriller, except a thriller about nerds starting a website.

Fincher’s distinct style of filmmaking has worked wonderfully with those previously mentioned “bygone times,” but his styling of such recent events exemplifies Fincher’s status as a current master of American cinema. One could argue that it is more difficult to capture the essence of a time still fresh in memory, and Fincher’s technical expertise, along with his excellent choice in cinematographers… exhibit Fincher’s ability to overcome that conundrum.
