    New York Film Festival: The Social Network

    David Fincher’s The Social Network is bookended by sequences that take up the question of whether or not its protagonist—Facebook cofounder and barely postadolescent billionaire Mark Zuckerberg—is an asshole. That the verdicts come courtesy of a series of female observers is at once unusual in light of the film’s masculine thrust (all of the major characters are young men) and perfectly apposite considering its major underlying theme. Which, by the way, has less to do with the conception and consequences of social media than a different kind of complex closed circuit: the male ego.

    Everyone in Their 30s Must See This Film

    Once in a while a film comes along that speaks to a generation. Kate Aselton's "The Freebie" is not one of those films. Instead it's a work that speaks to any and every generation as its members enter a certain age. I want to generalize this period as one's 30s, but it could possibly come about earlier depending on the individual.
