    Millions of Friends, but Not Very Popular

    MANOHLA DARGIS | New York Times- Movies | 5 of 5 Stars

    What makes Mark Zuckerberg run? In “The Social Network,” David Fincher’s fleet, weirdly funny, exhilarating, alarming and fictionalized look at the man behind the social-media phenomenon Facebook — 500 million active users, oops, friends, and counting — Mark runs and he runs, sometimes in flip-flops and a hoodie, across Harvard Yard and straight at his first billion. Quick as a rabbit, sly as a fox, he is the geek who would be king or just Bill Gates. He’s also the smartest guy in the room, and don’t you forget it.

    Too many turn up at The Social Network screening, leading to chaos at MAMI fest

    Aniruddha Guha | DNA Daily News & Analysis

    The Social Network, the latest film by Hollywood director David Fincher, was supposed to be the USP of the Mumbai Film Festival (MFF), oganised by the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI). But that very aspect turned out to be a nightmare for the organisers, as more than 500 people turned up for the screening at a hall of PVR cinemas at Juhu that could seat only 282 people.

    Jesse Eisenberg and Aaron Sorkin on Mark Zuckerberg, Misfits and ‘The Social Network’

    Brian Hiatt | Rolling Stone

    The Social Network may be a film about real people and real events, but its star, Jesse Eisenberg, and screenwriter, Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing) are the first to say that it can’t be taken as gospel.

    Jonathan Kim | Huffington Post

    With the Social Network coming in #1 at the box office as discussions about the truthfulness of its portrayal of Mark Zuckerberg rage, there’s one thing few are disputing — accurate or not, the Social Network is an extremely impressive movie and an early frontrunner for Best Picture and a slew of other Oscars.

    'The Social Network' Remains Friends With Weekend Box Office

    Josh Wigler | MTV

    Facebook’s popularity has never been greater, so it only makes sense that a movie based on the social networking site would be equally popular. For two weeks running, director David Fincher’s “The Social Network” has lived up to the hype, befriending the first-place spot at the box office and identifying its relationship status as “married” to success.

    The Facebook Movie Is Great For America

    Henry Blodget | San Francisco Chronicle

    Well, I finally saw the Facebook Movie. And I loved it. True, it paints Harvard as a stuffy cartoon-scape. True, it treats women as as video-game props, sex tools, and platforms for coke-snorting. And, true, Mark Zuckerberg’s character comes off as a bit of an asshole. (But based on the other evidence I’ve seen, this would seem to be a fair representation of the reality at the time. And, thanks to Aaron Sorkin’s writing and Jesse Eisenberg’s delivery, even the assholishness is charming.

    Influencing People

    David Denby |The New Yorker | Positive

    The Social Network directed by David Fincher and written by Aaron Sorkin, rushes through a coruscating series of exhilarations and desolations, triumphs and betrayals, and ends with what feels like darkness closing in on an isolated soul. This brilliantly entertaining and emotionally wrenching movie is built around a melancholy paradox: in 2003, Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg), a nineteen-year-old Harvard sophomore, invents Facebook and eventually creates a five-hundred-million-strong network of “friends,” but Zuckerberg is so egotistical, work-obsessed, and withdrawn that he can’t stay close to anyone; he blows off his only real pal, Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield), a fellow Jewish student at Harvard, who helps him launch the site.

    'The Social Network': The Reviews Are In!

    Eric Ditzian | MTV

    Facebook was recently valued at $33 billion. The movie about its founding should do about .09 percent of that total during its opening weekend at the box office, and Sony will be damn happy about it.
