Goldilocksian portrayal of Parker, Eduardo, & Zuck's respective visions for Facebook (too hot, too cold, just right) is another illustration of how Z, even amongst people who are with him, feels so alone. Sorkin's focus on Z's self-loathing wrt Jewish identity is all the more intense knowing he'd much rather allow Holocaust deniAL on FB than give deniERS the boot. Love this weird parable abt how greatness ain't shit.
This is bad. And I am not even sure what this is trying to achieve. The hacker days sound off with technobabble, the lads days are a pain to follow, the coming of age a story of being a lone sod without a friend. It all sounds off and laboured. The only thing I actually learned is that "I am the CEO, bitch" may be an Emacs and perl user, which could explain something about the character.
Referred to this film numerous times since I watched it. Tremendous performances. But how bizarre it is that something that started out as a dating site for Harvard students is now mainly used for communities to share recommendations for plumbers and to mouth off about rude behaviour on the local buses.
A cracking script by Aaron Sorkin based on a book by Ben Mezrich. David Fincher directing – the guy had done no wrong this far into his career, in my view. Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Rooney Mara, Justin Timberlake, Rashida Jones, Max Minghella and Armie Hammer in the main roles – this is a film worth giving a "like" to, at the very least.
good casting! a piece of 2010s history! this movie is fun and cemented a prevailing part of the Silicon Valley myth even tho the first time I watched it I couldn't get thru the first few scenes because I was like 'these guys suck so much and I dont care about their lives'
