Something is coming.
The relentless wind
of a January day
should keep my sails full.
In case you’ve been in a cave for the last six months, the Social Network is a somewhat fictionalized account of the early days of Facebook, as told in the book The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich. The film characterizes Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as a great innovator who, despite a nagging proclivity toward egotism and elitism (both of which became cornerstones of Facebook’s staggered rollout model), created a platform that has changed many people’s lives.
Highways connect cities, people, and places. Lost Highway, the mystery thriller from director David Lynch, explores the tenuous connections often made between people.
Guy Ritchie‘s second film Snatch is so close to his previous movie that it could be renamed Lock, Stock, Two Smoking Barrels, and Brad Pitt. This is not to say that Snatch is a bad film; its breakneck pacing and slick camera movement make it very enjoyable. Also interesting is the glimpse into the social hierarchy in gangster London where everyone “fuckin’ hates pikeys.”
