Total Film Hotlist 2010: The Winners
1) Hottest Film – The Social Network
We Say: The combination of Aaron Sorkin’s razor-sharp screenplay, David Fincher’s directorial verve, a zeitgeist cast, Trent Reznor’s quicksilver score and the clout of producer Scott Rudin made The Social Network not just a niche film about geeks but a snapshot of a generation, a drama of Shakespearean proportions and essential viewing. Oscar? We think so.
You Say: “Who knew a film about facebook could be so inclusive, so fascinating and so damn cool? Best film of the year without a doubt.” Hannah Conner, Derry
Producer Scott Rudin Says: “Enormous thanks to all the Total Film readers for supporting David Fincher’s The Social Network. We could not be more excited about how this film has been received, and we’re very much looking forward to the Coen Brothers’ True Grit in January [produced by Rudin], and the next Fincher film, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, next year. Thanks to everybody who took the time to vote. It means a lot to us.”
