The Social Network.

Social Network poster, Eisenberg as Zuckenberg

Powered by Aaron Sorkin’s dialogue, this chugs along at a fair old rate, and you need to pay attention to keep up. It’s interesting and exciting despite having almost no likeable characters in it – Andrew Garfield’s Eduardo is the nearest thing to a ‘hero’ since Jesse Eisenberg’s protagonist is played pretty much as a driven (and brilliant) jerk.

It’s a very good film – I was entertained and feel that I have probably been reasonably accurately informed, and I’m always a sucker for chopped-up chronologies – but I’m not sure it deserved quite so much praise as it has received. There wasn’t quite enough emotional involvement for that and I don’t know how long it will remain with me.
