|Talk about Two Americas. Look at "The Social Network" again after seeing "True Grit," and you'll see two different civilizations, as far removed from each other in ethos as Silicon Valley and Monument Valley. "The Social Network" is nothing if not the true sequel to "Wall Street." The landscape is Cambridge, Mass., but we might as well be in the pre-civilized Wild West. Instead of thieves bearing guns, we have thieves bearing depositions. Instead of actual assassinations, we have character assassinations by blog post. In place of an honorable social code, we have a social network presided over by a post-adolescent billionaire whose business card reads "I'm CEO...b*tch!"|
