Three sentence movie review: The Social Network.
I’m deeply divided about this movie so you are getting six sentences, three each from two different perspectives.
From the general movie going public perspective:
This was just a fabulously gripping movie. From the first scene to the last the creation of the Internet site that changed all of our lives is mesmerizing—and we are talking about a lot of coding, i.e. people staring at screens. Top notch acting by everyone, especially the “we must see more of him” Jesse Eisenberg.
From a slightly-aware female perspective:
Where are the women? The movie starts with a great female character, but she quickly exits stage left and the women we see are reduced to object status (or slightly unhinged girlfriends.) Surely there must have been a few women involved in some aspect of the creation of Facebook outside of the interns and the young things with flat stomachs for Sean Parker to snort cocaine off of?
