I don't get to the movies often. Occupational hazard I suppose? 2 hours is a long time for me to sit in a chair making money for other people. Entrepreneurship simply doesn't allow for it. Not yet, anyway. I call it a hazard because at the end of the day films are an integral part of our society's culture, and have been for ages. As a creative, I embrace film and all that it has to offer. I acknowledge it's impact on my own creativity and find amazement in their inherent parallels. Film and music are inextricably linked. I am privileged to be able to call myself a musician and thusly a peer to the great purveyors of our sister art.
All that to say, this trailer seems to hint at a fine piece of art in which I will be making an earnest effort to indulge come October 1st. From director David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men, Charlie Wilson's War) comes the epic tale...Just kidding. It's a film about Mark Zuckerberg, the young billionaire founder of Facebook. Given the monumental impact that Facebook has had on this decade, this generation and even this writer, I fully expect that this film will have a great impact on it's viewers. Apparently Zuckerberg is not pleased with his portrayal in the film, but I'm sure if he has to shed a tear he can do so in the comfort of his Buggati. Possibly while in the French Riviera for a little retail therapy? Boo hoo.
Side note - Justin Timberlake is co-starring. After his performance in Alpha Dog I actually anticipate him knocking this one out the park.
Jesse Eisenberg (who plays Zuckerberg) is actually doing him a favour b/c he kinda favours Michael Cera (who can do no wrong). Zuckerberg is a DWEEB and Eisenberg actually makes him look kinda cool. So stop cryin' rich man.
