In a recent interview with Premiere, Quentin Tarantino called The Social Network “hands down” the best film of the last decade. High praise from a director of his calibre.

“It is number one because it’s the best – that’s all! It crushes all the competition.”

Tarantino also went on to call screenwriter Aaron Sorkin “the greatest active dialogist” of our time. As many of you may recall, the David Fincher film was rich with Sorkin’s signature rapid-fire smarter-than-thou patter.

In terms of second place, Tarantino considers Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk a worthy pick. And while no further rankings have been provided by the auteur himself, we do know he’s fond of both Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris and George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road.

The Social Network depicts the formative years of Facebook through the lens of Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg), Eduardo Saverin (Andrew Garfield), and the Winklevoss twins (Armie Hammer). It generated US$224.9 million against a US$40 million budget.

Selected as the best film of 2010 by the National Board of Review, it racked up a total of eight Academy Award nominations – three of which they won:

  • Best Picture
  • Best Director
  • Best Adapted Screenplay (Won)
  • Best Actor for Jesse Eisenberg
  • Best Cinematography
  • Best Film Editing (Won)
  • Best Original Score (Won)
  • Best Sound Mixing
