The Social Network ★★★★★

I wanna slap my past-self across the face for not giving this five stars out of the gate, because this is quite simply put one of the best films of this century.

Features not only the most memorable opening scene of the 2010's, one that characterizes and establishes its protagonist in just a handful of lines out of an entire six-minute dialogue scene, but also one of the best opening credits sequences. Mark running through campus on the way to his dorm, swimming against the current as every single one of his peers walks in the opposite direction, immediately tells the audience how alone and out-of-touch with society he really feels despite his gigantic ego. And it also shows how he's on a different path than everyone else - on his way to create a huge billion-dollar venture in his college dorm while the other students at Harvard stay on their mundane path.
