This week's reviewed movie is:
The Social Network




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber



A genius computer student at Harvard University uses his idea to bring all the college networks together, revolutionizing Internet communication worldwide.

Six years later, he becomes the world's youngest billionaire, but not without many lawsuits and many personal setbacks -- showing the birth of facebook plus the impact it has on 500 million people.

This is one of those films you should see twice -- at least for me.

The Social Network has created a big buzz and is well worth the history lesson.

It's a 21st century Rashomon told in flashbacks from several points of view at warp speed: the story of temperamental genius Mark Zuckerberg's rise to fame as the developer and co-founder of facebook -- from college network to worldwide phenomenon.

It's storytelling at its best with smart dialogue, terrific acting, and beautiful camera work.

With this many "friends," who has time for enemies?

The movie is the story of facebook's beginning.

The tale is clever, full of material for thought, and is based on a true story.

The character of Mark Zuckerberg, as represented by the filmmakers, is fascinating and his journey involves many aspects of the electronic era human experience, like friendship, obsession, big ideas, betrayal, and lots of money.

Mr. Zuckerberg is now a 26-year-old billionaire who started the site in his Harvard college dorm room when he was 19, and turned it into a global web empire.
