The Social Network

The Social Network ★★★★★

Third time I've seen this. This time the music was front and center for me. The score for this film easily deserved the Oscar it won. It creates such memorable scenes (the regatta, the restaurant, the fashmash montage) and the energy it gives the film, along with the rapid-fire dialogue makes this a speedy two hours.

I remember when I first heard about the film and wondering how it could be entertaining. The Social Network was the best case scenario. The slow-motion car crash that was the creation of Facebook is compelling in the way the best dramas are.
