Eisenberg was probably born for this role.
The story is well threaded and you don’t get bored until the end. A decent movie.

Here we go with the fourth review of a David Fincher’s film this week, in preparation for the upcoming Mank, directed by the same person who delivered phenomenal movies like Se7en, Fight Club, Zodiac, and more. Now, it’s time for The Social Network, which premise can be summed up in “the story behind the creation of Facebook”. Ten years have passed since its release, and the real Mark Zuckerberg already stated that most of the film is based on fictional events and conversations. Truth is, this movie was never marketed as a true story, but yes as an adaptation of Ben Mezrich’s 2009 book The Accidental Billionaires. It’s a film like any other, not a detailed account of whatever happened in real life.
With that said, this is easily one of the best adapted screenplays of all-time. Aaron Sorkin, the man behind one of the best movies of 2020 (The Trial of the Chicago 7), demonstrates his incredibly talented writing skills in The Social Network, proving that he’s one of the most meticulous writers working today. If you’ve been reading my previous reviews, there’s a couple of compliments I keep giving to Fincher, which are his extreme attention to detail and his impressive dedication to the narrative he wants to tell. So, what happens when you put together two of the most perfectionist filmmakers ever? An award-worthy, “best of the year” contender arises from their gifted minds.
There’s not even much to discuss besides the narrative itself since this is, by far, the aspect that elevates the whole film. Jeff Cronenweth, who previously worked in Fight Club, brings out Fincher’s trademark realistic look and feel through his simple yet powerful cinematography. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ original score is packed with little effects that resemble computer sounds, making it quite addictive while also increasing the movie’s energy in the most exciting sequences. Finally, just like in Zodiac, the editing work (Angus Wall, Kirk Baxter) is absolutely seamless, and it’s definitely the technical component that better helps Sorkin’s screenplay shine due to the latter’s structure.
Throughout the entire runtime, the story is told through a nonlinear timeline, mixing up Facebook’s actual creation (ideas, planning, programming) with the future legal issues that Mark Zuckerberg faces. This structure allows for an exceptionally captivating and tremendously entertaining couple of hours by never letting the pacing slow down or to have an uneventful sequence. The protagonist is accused of stealing the concept from the Winklevoss twins (both interpreted by Armie Hammer), gets in trouble with his best friend, Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield), over the website’s monetization, and Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake) is partially the trigger for a lot of the chaos that ends up overwhelming Zuckerberg’s life.
Sorkin and Fincher’s greatest accomplishment is their success in making the viewer feel invested in a main character who’s an utter “asshole”, an adjective with a lot of weight in the film. Jesse Eisenberg is remarkable as one of those characters people “love to hate” (no wonder the real Zuckerberg didn’t enjoy the movie since he’s depicted as a contemptible friend). Eisenberg has a unique manner of speaking and distinctive mannerisms that are perfect for this character. Garfield and Timberlake are also formidable, incorporating their characters effortlessly. Once again, comparing with Zodiac, The Social Network is also a dialogue-driven narrative, but the latter resonated with me a bit more due to my area of work.
The only issue I have involves the Winklevoss family. Armie Hammer is excellent as both twins, as is Max Minghella as Divya Narendra, but their subplot occasionally drifts from the main story, losing my interest for those short moments. There’s even a rowboat race that feels out-of-place and unnecessary, but I admit that it’s gorgeously shot and accompanied by a fantastic soundtrack. Despite this little misstep, Fincher continues to impress me with his outstanding directing techniques, forcing the actors to prove their worth by making them go through their dialogues faster and implementing long takes every time that’s possible.
All in all, The Social Network is yet another masterful piece of cinema, this time delivered by not one but two magnificent filmmakers. David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin employ their mutual perfectionism and meticulousness to create an extraordinarily engaging narrative. Boasting a nonlinear but tremendously effective structure, the two pillars of any film – story and characters – are wonderfully built, even reaching the point of making the viewer feel invested in a despicable yet fascinating protagonist. Jesse Eisenberg shines in a career-defining performance, but Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake also rise to the necessary level of dedication, dealing with the rapid-fire dialogues and outstanding long takes seamlessly. Technically, great camera work offers a realistic feel, an addictive score increases the excitement levels, and flawless editing makes the different timelines shift seamlessly. Despite an occasionally unnecessary, irrelevant detour concerning a minor subplot, this is another brilliant addition to Fincher’s filmography.
The Social Network
Let’s start with the script. It’s great. Written by soon-to-be-best- adapted-screenplay-nominee/winner Aaron Sorkin, The Social Network’s writing is intelligent and demanding on multiple levels: most obviously, the story is cleverly structured across dual lawsuits, but there’s an equal amount of sophistication to Sorkin’s character work–Zuckerberg is never quite capable of maintaining a dialog, Eduardo always stops just short of explicating his emotions.
Those two characters are wonderfully played by inevitable acting award nominees Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield–Eisenberg owns the brisk pace of the film while Garfield brings most of the humanity–who anchor a terrific ensemble–SAG best ensemble, perhaps? The film’s score is a perfectly atmospheric concoction of electronica from edgy dark horse best original score nominees Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, and it’s all united under the name and vision of David Fincher, who did not win an Oscar for Fight Club or Zodiac or Benjamin Button.
All of this is to say two things: this is a really great movie from a phenomenal creative team, and also there are times when the film feels somewhat calculated for accolades–never in the repugnantly safe, crowd- pleasing, middle-brow Benjamin Button sense, but in the sweetly transparent sense of a kid who did all his chores and is suggesting that he might deserve a cookie.
You know what? Give David Fincher a cookie. The Social Network is thoroughly intelligent and engaging as a modern biopic and as an examination of evolving cultural currency, and it’s also one of my favorite films this year. -TK 10/1/10
