Finally had a chance to check out David Fincher’s new (well, relatively new here in France) movie The Social Network last night. I’ve already mentioned the movie previously, so I won’t carry on here. I am a sucker for a great script and this movie has one. The film grabs you in the first scene - a scene which basically reverberates through the whole story - and doesn’t let up.
I had grand plans here to write more about the movie, but really, what can I say? Go see it.
One thing that has been floating through my mind since seeing the movie is the concept of richness. Some people measure richness as a level of how diverse something is, such as the quantification of biological diversity. Some people think being rich is having a lot of cash money. Some people think being rich is having a lot of friends. Some people think being rich is having the one thing you want. What do you think?
Also, read or listen to this.
