As I understand it (and please correct if I’m wrong), Guardian film editor Andrew Pulver isn’t predicting a Social Network Best Picture win — he’s simply saying it should win. “A superb piece of filmmaking in every respect,” they declare in one passage, “[and] probably the first important movie that could only have been made in this century. It brings a sharp eye and a critical intelligence to bear upon a remarkable phenomenon without appearing either dazzled by youth or querulously fogeyish.”
