The Social Network

At a time when Wikileaks is about as exciting as The Bourne franchise meets The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo franchise it already seem old hat to say so, but The Social Network is (so far) the film of 2010.  This at least is what 85 critics from all points of the compass have concluded for Sight and Sound, the world's top English movie mag.  As I did in my review, S & S now compare the movie to Citizen Kane.  It may not be that good, but its take on rivalry, business, friendship, youth, money and media, and startlingly fresh mise-en-scene, turn it in to a very original and satisfying film that has won plaudits from all types, and even made money.  I predict it will win much at the Oscars.
