Review: The Social Network
Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg creates the social networking website that would become known as Facebook, but is later sued by two brothers who claimed he stole their idea, and the co-founder who was later squeezed out of the business. A rare film that is important on so many levels. Not only does it document the journey Zuckerberg went through to create the phenomenon of Facebook, but it is also just as smart, cocksure, impatient, and cold as Zuckerberg. All those characteristics make this film essential viewing.
