The Social Network

I saw ‘The Social’ Network’ yesterday. A good but very depressing movie. A modern day chapter of Ecclesiastes just without the happy ending. The last scene with Mark Zuckerberg sitting on facebook, friendless, hitting refresh hoping his old girlfriend might accept his friend request was especially tragic. I couldn’t help coming home and watching a few interviews with the real Zuckerberg, and he doesn’t seem as bad as the movie portrays him. But even though the movie is fiction, it’s hard not to view the real person badly after seeing a movie like that. The Social Network was a realistic portrayal of human selfishness and made me thankful for Jesus and real friendships. I’d recommend it for viewing except that there was way too much sex and women kissing for my liking.
