Diane de Beer Network with a sting in the tale
Laetitia Pople Intense en spannende drama
Kirk Honeycutt Gains not worth the loss
Pete Hammond Fincher has taken this compelling true story and given it drama and significance well beneath its surface to create a landmark masterwork and a must-see movie event.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert The Social Network is a great film not because of its dazzling style or visual cleverness, but because it is splendidly well-made.
Jason Anderson No recent film conveys the pleasures and pitfalls of human conversation with the same enthusiasm or fascination as director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s fiendishly clever docudrama about the roundelay of alliances and betrayals that surrounded the birth of Facebook.
C. Fuchs Terrific and completely engaging film.
Tomatometer Impeccably scripted, beautifully directed, and filled with fine performances, The Social Network is a riveting, ambitious example of modern filmmaking at its finest.
