The Social Network ★★★★★

similarities: 'the social network' and the big fight scene in 'marriage story'

both male characters start the conversation discussing a bigger issue, wittle it down to make it about themselves, and continue to see everything their female counterpart says as an attack on their character. when their self-absorption is called out they feign confusion and play victim.

beyond these scenes each film consistently tends towards criticising the fragility of the male ego in a way that is rarely explored by male screenwriters - and it's further testament to why noah baumbach and aaron sorkin are so exceptional in their field.
