You have not known what you are.
You have slumbered upon yourself all your life.
Your eyes have been as much as closed most of the time.
What you have done is already in mockeries.

The mockeries are not you.
Underneath them
And within them,
I see you lurk...

-Walt Whitman



If you haven't seen David Fincher's critically acclaimed film, The Social Network (2010), you should (and probably see Facebook in a whole new light :P Well, I did!). It's definitely one of the best films of the year and its Oscar nomination and the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture were well-deserved. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a whooping 97% rating.

Jesse Eisenberg, who plays the role of Mark Zuckerberg in the film, gave a breakthrough performance even though the external feel of his acting didn't change. probably because of the type of the character he's playing-- the geeky, unassuming, and innately hilarious. No wonder he's always compared with Michael Cera. I like geeky characters... because they simply rock! :P

But what would happen if Mark Zuckerberg meets the REAL Mark Zuckerberg? Jesse Eisenberg's monologue in this Saturday Night Live episode is just epic!

Zuckerberg's doppleganger! Apart from their facial similarities, their names rhyme too! Zuckerberg an Eisenberg! Haha

I have yet to watch the movie... when I say that friends look ridiculously at me as if its a capital crime not seeing it. Sooo, I guess, after this review, I'll ask for a copy tomorrow and watch it after exams!

I saw The Social Network and thought it was okay. I mean... ayus lang. It was nice. Hahaha.

I love Jessie Eisenberg and it was nice to see him outside the character he played in TSN. So awkward. I'll take him over the gasgas Michael Cera any day. Wahahaha.
