The film features four breakthrough performances as far as I am concerned with Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake and Armie Hammer all giving very powerful and persuasive acting performances. Director David Fincher and cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth did a tremendous job at giving this film a unique and appropriate look to it as well. It's kind of a hard thing to explain, but everything just seems so right about this film. The visuals and pacing really help to carry it throughout its 121 minutes. The film also features some very striking music by the talented composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
The Social Network is a film that will not soon be forgotten and will be discussed by film lovers for years to come. It's riveting, exhilarating, absorbing, and fast-moving in addition to being a film that can be enjoyed by pretty much anyone. The story is probably one of the most engaging and interesting stories ever told in movie history. It's an amazing cinematic achievement that deserves all of its accolades. Who would have thought that coding and algorithms could be so fascinating?
Overall Rating: 4.5/5
