David Brooks on The Social Network

David Brooks reviewed The Social Network, and I like his take on it.

I especially like this:

Many critics have compared this picture to “Citizen Kane.” But I was reminded of the famous last scene in “The Searchers,” in which the John Wayne character is unable to join the social bliss he has created. The character gaps that propel some people to do something remarkable can’t be overcome simply because they have managed to change the world.
