You can tell Zuck is a robot cuz he spends time around Twizzlers and sub sandwiches and steak and salad and chicken but doesn’t eat anything. 

Also interesting how as soon as the Winklevi and Wardo come to the point in the “past” narrative where they say they are going to come for Zuck in court they disappear from the movie. I had noticed that before with the Winklevi but not with Wardo. It’s a great way of connecting the past and present narratives but it also says something about the way Zuck psychologically perceived them through the structural metatext.

Also the menu on the Blu Ray has got to be one of the greatest of all time.... It’s simultaneously calming and unnerving, comprised of footage from the movie and other random b roll but the sound is all different. It’s almost a work of art in a way... you don’t usually think of DVD menus as art but if any of them qualify it would be this one. 

Fitting, isn’t it, that the greatest film of all time also has the greatest packaging of all time.

Also I hit 100 followers today!!! Thanks so much!
