Movie Review – “The Social Network”
David Fincher’s “The Social Network” is a movie about the creation of Facebook, and as such it’s about computer nerds and civil lawsuits. Neither of those usually makes for interesting films. Apart from that it’s director David Fincher usually likes to take on extreme or unusual material, and who loves experimenting with special effects. Think of “Seven”, “Alien 3”, “Fight Club”, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”. For him to make a film like “The Social Network” seems like a bit of an odd fit. But our reviewer Gary Pollard thought it worked better than most would have imagined.
Street Music Series of Concerts
Think about how we listen to live music. Maybe it’s a pop concert where fans are carrying lights or lighters, signs, dancing, screaming and applauding like crazy. Or maybe we go to a classical music concert where we sit more sedately in our chairs and clap politely at the end. Or you could listen to tango, that might be played in a dance hall in South America. Or Cantonese opera, performed in a bamboo shed at some village festival.We hear different kinds of music in different kinds of venues and atmospheres. But Hong Kong composer and musician Kung Chi-Shing wants to bring a wide variety of music to the street.
