the social network

monkeyrating: 9/10

genre: Drama Biography (and in the future- History)

waddabout: the almost true story of how the greatest change of the decade - FACEBOOK, came about.

i say: if you are in this decade, have an account on facebook or are just looking for an unconventional success story filled with attitude - this is the film for you! must watch for every buzzing youngster for sure!

# according to me, this movie deserved the Oscar for best film and best director.

monkeyrespect to: David Fincher without a doubt - flawless direction! he keeps the pace ticking in a movie about computer geeks! that's like making a game of chess look like a MMA match! sheer brilliance!

Aaron Sorkin - absolute greatness in dialogue and screenplay! his words are like punches in a professional boxing match - jab - jab - jab - punch! every word hits and stings, all the way to a knockout!
a true master of dialogue driven screenplay!

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross won their truly deserved Oscar for Original Score. their music keeps flowing seamlessly building the mood of everyscene and adding anticipation about the next in every sequence!

#must mention here that Justin Timberlake's rendition of Sean parker, as short as may be, leaves a lasting impression! what a character!!!! you hate him(the character), but cant stop admiring him!!!!
for me, the most memorable words from the movie are delivered by him: "i'm ceo, bitch!" and "a million dollars aint cool. you know what's cool? a billion dollars!" - profound and spunky!

trivia note: the movie is based on a book - 'The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal' (2009) by Ben Mezrich.
