Sean Kelly

My Thoughts on The Social Network

I remember firsthand experiencing the growth of Facebook from a site exclusive to college and university students to being the top social network in the world.  I was also somewhat familiar with the lawsuit that formed the basis, which the film was built around.

Despite the disputed authenticity by the real Mark Zuckerberg, this film about the create of Facebook (and the disputes that came with it) is quite intriguing.  I also have to say that I really enjoyed Trent Reznor's very synthesizer-based score of the film.

Even though at first thought a Facebook movie would have sounded silly, I thought it actually turned out to be quite good.
