Buy it... if you have won the lottery, found your dream mate, got ripped abdominal muscles, hit the maximum allowable number of friends on Facebook, and need some morbidly disillusioning, hideously ambient electronic music to bring you crashing back down to Earth.

Avoid it... if the sun don't shine no more and you're proofreading your suicide note.

EDITORIAL REVIEW
FILMTRACKS TRAFFIC RANK: #674
WRITTEN 12/13/10
The Social Network: (Trent Reznor/Atticus Ross) The social networking website Facebook is populated by two segments of the global community: insecure individuals seeking futile confirmation of their worth to society and businesses jumping on a popular bandwagon because they're told it's the right thing to do to reach younger consumers. It's a popularity contest of global proportions, masking itself as a convenient tool with which to keep in touch with friends and family while in fact destroying society by encouraging people to value their online communication over face-to-face interactions. Countless Filmtracks visitors have asked over the latter half of the 2000's why this site has no official presence on any social networking venue, and the simple answer is always the same: why waste time maintaining a Facebook account when it could be spent with real people or, at the very least, writing reviews like the one you're reading right now? Given how dispiriting the concept and implications of Facebook can be, rivaling a shopping experience at Wal-Mart in real life, it's not surprising that the basic circumstances behind the site's creation are equally distasteful. Those loose facts were the basis of Ben Mezrich's 2009 book "The Accidental Billionaires" and David Fincher's 2010 cinematic adaptation, The Social Network. The film conveys the juvenile and messy origins of the Facebook site, from a silly diversion on a college campus to the lawsuits that resulted from those who were involved with its founder at its inception in 2004. The college students and their associates who created the site are not entirely likeable people, making The Social Network both laughable and horrifying. In a way, it's like a car wreck that you can't turn away from, and Fincher's portrayal of this slice of history has earned significant critical praise and box office success. The director turned to Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor to write music for The Social Network, and although Reznor initially turned the project down, he was eventually impressed enough by the script to enlist the help of collaborator Atticus Ross to write music for the concept that extends out of material they had produced in the past.
