“Social Network” called “probably” the year’s best movie by top critic


By Sean O’Connell
The main question seems to be, “When will Armond White post his negative ‘Social Network’ review?”

It’s bound to happen. That’s what White does when movies earn across-the-board raves like David Fincher’s Facebook drama.

Though the film doesn’t open until Oct. 1, critics have been getting early looks and reacting through various media. Today, Justin Chang raved about it for Variety, writing, “To those who initially scoffed at the notion of anyone, much less the director of Seven and Fight Club, making an interesting film about the internet’s most ubiquitous social-networking site, Fincher has delivered a terrifically entertaining rejoinder.”

Rene Rodriguez of the Miami Herald goes one step further, posting under the exclamatory headline, “The best movie of the year? Probably.”

Again, we have to concern ourself with an Oscar frontrunner peaking too soon. But right now, Fincher’s “The Social Network” seems to lead the pack with co-runner “The King’s Speech” … even though we still have a long, long way to go.

“The Social Network” will be in theaters on Oct. 1.
