The social network

One of David Fincher’s modern masterpieces, it’s an impeccably directed, brilliantly written and beautifully acted film about ambition, ego and technology.

Jesse Eisenberg is perfectly loathsome in the lead role of Mark Zuckerberg, portraying the Facebook founder from inventing the platform (designed as a way to meet girls) at Harvard to the fallout from his billion-dollar success, including the lawsuits he faced. of co-founder Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield) and the Winklevoss twins (Armie Hammer).

Written by Aaron Sorkin, not a single line of dialogue is lost in this 2010 tale, and every scene is jammed and shot with finesse. From the iconic opening scene with Rooney Mara, this film is a brilliant gutting of toxic masculinity, privilege, and the insidious side effects of immense wealth and power in the tech industry.
