The movie isn't exclusively about Facebook. It's about the people involved with the creation of it. It is about friendship, loyalty and success. Did you happen to watch this "movie" or did you skip over it to post this ignorant comment.

I wonder if FaceMash influenced Flickchart?

It did not. I didn't even know about FaceMash before seeing the movie. That part of the film definitely hit close to home though when I was watching it!

It's been 2 years and this movie continues to climb my flickchart. Currently my #2 favorite film of all time. Tight race between this, Drive, and my #1 film of all time, Pulp Fiction.

Well... Ppl might criticize 'The Social Network' for being to documentary-like or whatever. But I found Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield did an awesome job as actors, and the story is quite well told. I quite liked it.

A film that has definitely grown on me over repeated viewings. Everything about this film is near flawless: the script, performances, editing and the Winklevoss CGI is slick; One of Fincher's best and a gem of the new decade.

Highly overrated in public. Not a bad film but quite basic mediocre story film. It's entertaining but that's not what cinema is about and it's also not about stories. Cinematography is pretty good, the script is quite tight and good, only Eisenberg's performance is very good and I do like the themes in it and the irony in Mark Zuckerberg. I would like it a lot more if it would have studied the affects of a social network in people but it doesn't, it's just a basic biopic about the creator of the social network. To sum it up in two words it's overrated and mediocre not a great film like Fight club, Se7en and Zodiac

That isn't really what the film is about. It focuses on the fact that even after making a site for people to interact more, people end up actually just being more isolated, perfectly encapsulated by Mark's character

I can't figure out quite why, but I thought it was a masterpiece. There's just something perfect about the dialogue, the way the characters interact with eachother. I couldn't wait to see what happened next despite the fact that I knew the story.

Garfield steals the show in my my opinion, there's something more human about his character than anyone else.

One of the best films of all time. One of the greatest screenplays to ever grace the screen. Masterful direction and acting. Just a brilliant movie all round.

Another great performance from Andrew Garfield. Fincher is a fantastic director.

Arguably Fincher's second greatest film with a phenomenal screenplay, fantastic acting all-around, gripping and fun dialogue, etc. Really, the only film I think that tops this one is Se7en

This movie will go down as one of the greatest and most important movies of all time and is likely the best of its decade. Flawless direction and editing, brilliant editing that cuts through time smoothly, sharp and extremely memorable performances from an excellent cast, and one of the best screenplays ever adapted to film. It's a story about many universal themes like friendship, betrayal, jealousy, isolation, social acceptance, and change. A story of how a man can change the world, yet is simultaneously unable to change himself, driving everyone he cares about away from him. The comparisons between this and Citizen Kane are apt regardless of which one you think is better. Both are incredibly important in our time, both are incredibly crafted movies and arguably perfect, and both are about people gaining everything, yet ending up with nothing. 10/10

A masterpiece. Gives me nostalgia of the 2000s, where I spent most of my college days. Aside from that, Fincher's direction and Sorkin's screenplay workout very well together. The acting performances are also pretty great.
