No. 31: The Social Network
The creationist myth
2010, dir. David Fincher. The story of the creation of the Internet—not the technical Internet, but the Internet the way we use it and the way in which it has changed our lives—is literally the story of a scrawny Westchester kid named Mark Zuckerberg who feels lame because at Harvard he can only get into the AEPi, not the final clubs, and so decides to beat two gigantic identical twins who row crew and are named Winklevoss. Even Eduardo Saverin, his partner turned foe, is a Jew. This movie will be for the latter-oughts what Wall Street was for the latter-’80s.
