The Social Network

Caught it over the weekend, and thought it was fantastic. To state the obvious: this is a drama, not a work of journalism or a documentary. It’s meant to entertain and move you. To the extent that it teaches you anything, I don’t think it teaches you much about the specifics of Facebook’s creation, or the ensuing lawsuits. But it makes you feel something, and it keeps you hypnotized for a good two hours. In fact, when it was done, I found myself wishing I could stay in that world for another two hours. I’m looking forward to seeing it again.

I’d write more, but David Denby has already said pretty much everything that needs to be said.
