Hand Covers Bruise

Congratulations to Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross for their first Oscar for Best Original Score for The Social Network. Totally deserving of that award. The film wouldn't have been what it is if it weren't for the music (a bit similar to NIN's Ghosts). From the first time you see that title sequence with the main theme, you know this is not your usual college flick. But aside from that, the outstanding directing (David Fincher) and writing (The West Wing's Aaron Sorkin) and acting made The Social Network one of the top five films I've seen this past decade. Like what Rebel Without A Cause and Easy Rider was to audiences back in the '60s, The Social Network is the film of this generation. Just don't NOT watch it because it's a film about Facebook. Cause in many ways it's more than that.
