The Social Network ★★★★½

The symphony of dialogue, extracting poetry out of mundane conversations, shooting back and forth, back and forth like being in an intense firefight. The lyrical genius infuses musical rhythm into sentences in the most natural way possible, yet again. To think that I used to find this lame and boring, to think that sitting at a corner in chemistry class, halfway through watching this on my phone, I actually stopped and paid attention to the lecture instead. Chemistry class. What fucking sorcery. The Social Network is a perfect example of full synchronization between writer and director, it's beautiful, it's chaotic but 101% intelligible, so sit back and relax, we are in the hands of the top craftsmen of the industry.
