The Social Network Reviews

Al Alexander
The Patriot Ledger

It captures the essence of selfishness and treachery, all under the guise of creating a system geared toward making it easier for college kids to get laid. And sure enough, in the end, just about everybody gets screwed.

The Social Network is a spellbinding and compelling story with top notch performances and flawless directing.

Shared Darkness

Fincher keeps the movie's tech-y elements on the periphery, focusing instead on the time-honored dramatic elements of isolation, determination, avarice and betrayal.

The movie that shows you just what being "the smartest guy in the room" will get you.

Aaron Sorkin's amazing script and several great performances make this one of the best movies of 2010.

The Social Network may not turn out to be the definitive movie made about the plugged-in generation, but it's a pretty good start.

Fincher's keen eye for direction and Sorkin's sharp script make this worth seeing for fans and non-fans of [Facebook] alike.

Director David Fincher seems drawn to these stories of misguided rebels who become monsters in their attempts to reorder the world.

The Baltic Times

Even if you've never touched a computer in your life, you'll find plenty to be fascinated by in this movie, as it shows that, whilst technology may be moving fast, the human capacity for hubris will always remain the same.

... A classic American story of capitalism and greed, friendship and betrayal, fueled by envy and lost innocence ...

At last, a movie you can actually discuss afterward. And not just on Facebook or Twitter. No, you'll want to chew it over in person, with friends, for hours.

It's hard work making a character you don't like into a character you don't like, but can still respect.

Perhaps we've become a world of Mark Zuckerbergs and it's clear that these filmmakers don't like it one bit.

It's part Citizen Kane, part Goodfellas, part Revenge of the Nerds and the most entertaining film you never knew you would want to see.

The Social Network is so engrossing you don't even notice how heavy handed the films central dramatic irony could be -- that the greatest tool for communication in the modern age was created by someone who has no idea how to relate to other people.

House Next Door

I've read a lot about The Social Network at this point, mostly raves about how it supposedly captures The Way We Live Now, but no one has really zeroed in on how deliberately alienating it is.

You wouldn't think that [Fincher & Sorkin's] talents would gel, yet their collaboration on The Social Network is brilliant ... a gripping tale of ambition and envy, betrayal and resentment.

What Culture

That the project is not only a success but one of 2010′s best films is a testament to Fincher's talent as a director and his seemingly perennial ability to surround himself with incredibly astute, like-minded collaborators.

Almost certainly deliberately indebted to [Citizen] Kane, a quality that wordlessly speaks to Zuckerberg's own inflated ego.
