Precocious II

film 2 of 3

The Social Network

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jun 16, 2015

Maybe the way to neutralize a precocious director who is prone to show off is to pit him against a precocious writer who feels the same way. The result can be obnoxious unto insufferable. Or it can balance the worst of both, and leave us with strengths both complementary and compounded. Which is basically the case here.

We might remember this one in years to come.
