The Social Network

I have been looking forward to the release of this movie ever since first seeing the trailer and I can say the film does deliver and Jesse Eisenberg's performance is a tour de force. They say beware of the woman scorned but heaven help you if you are on the receiving end of a genius computer geek who can write code in his sleep, can hack networks in a single bound and is pissed because he just lost his girlfriend. As a friend on mine stated so aptly, this film is not about the rise of Facebook but rather the rise of an internet empire and the collateral damage to friends and enemies along the way. Justin Timberlake delivers a good performance as well as Napster founder Sean Parker but the question is will the singer turned actor ever go back to singing? Who cares about the singing but do go see this movie because it is incredibly good and entertaining to watch unravel.
