An excellent movie expressing the journey of the creation of 'Facebook'
In 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer genius Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) begins work on a new concept that eventually turns into the global social network known as Facebook. Six years later, he is one of the youngest billionaires ever, but Zuckerberg finds that his unprecedented success leads to both personal and legal complications when he ends up on the receiving end of two lawsuits, one involving his former friend (Andrew Garfield). Based on the book "The Accidental Billionaires."
Why 4 Stars?
The movie is great. I've watched it 2 nights in a row now and both times I have been engaged. This film actually makes me hate, despise even, Sean Parker! I feel for Eduardo Saverin - being almost removed from the company that he co-founded. As a coder myself, the coding scene where Zuckerberg writes the website facesmash.com is amazing!
Have a watch:
The music is great too. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross did a great job on this music. It reflects the digital revolution that was taking place and that piano melody is great at representing the loss of friendship, regret and everything about the movie. The remix of Edvard Grieg's 'In the Hall of the Mountain King' is just awesome!
Have a listen:
But like always, there is always ways you can improve a movie. If it were 5 stars it would be the best movie... ever! Which I am afraid, probably no movie I will ever watch will pass this.
