The Social Network|The Social Network

It’s a while ago, but I went to see “The Social Network”. It was much better than I thought. I expected something like a typical “success story of Mark Zuckerberg” which sounds a bit boring, but I enjoyed the direction which mixes the time line and its speedy story-telling. It was a casual watch.

Although I have no idea what the real Mark Zuckerberg is like, I liked his ability of coding…err, no, vitality. How he plans what he wants to do in his brain and quickly wires it up looked really cool…is it geeky impression? He is absolutely intelligent, but probably that results in his behaviour which looks rather arrogant…even communication with his best friend, his (unintentional) attitude resulted in making a gap little by little…these story was quite interesting. I guess he is innocent, in a sense.Well, I don’t know how much non-fictional the film is though.

Anyway, it taught me that any brilliant idea is simply worthless unless you can realize it in this world, I thought this film shows the power of realization. I want to see it again carefully.

ちょっと前の話になりますが、映画「Social Network」を見てきました。思ってたより面白かったです。なんというか、マーク・ザッカーバーグのサクセスストーリー的なものだとすると退屈かな〜なんて思ってたのですが、時系列が入り混ざりつつスピーディに話が進んで行くので、サクッと見られます。

ご本人がどんな人なのか知りませんが、彼のコーディング力・・・もとい行動力は見ていてスカッとする感じ。やりたい事を頭の中で組み上げてさっとコードを書き上げる感じがカッコイイ、ってこれってギークな感想?でも、頭はいいのだけれど、それが結果的に傲慢な行動につながってしまう感じが・・・。本人はそんなつもりは無いんだろうけど、親友とのやりとりも、そういう性格から少しずつズレがでてきてしまって・・・というストーリーも見ていて面白かったです。ある意味純粋なんだろう、この人。ってどこまで実話か知らんけど。

とにかく、どんなに素晴らしいアイデアがあっても、世の中に実現してみせる力がないと意味がないわけで、そういうパワーを見せてくれる映画だと思いました。ちょっともう一回じっくり見てみたい感じ。
