I would highly recommend The Social Network as a great drama with good comedy. A really well-done film. Good acting, good director, good script. (just be warned not all facts are necessarily accurate).

But what interested me about the film was how close it is to the story we love to tell about rock bands.

Band gets together. Band strikes it big. Band has glorious time of it with women, cash, and drugs. Band relationships start to show cracks. Band falls apart. (I would recommend the South Park parody of the story with Guitar Hero if you want to see the basics of the genre).

It did get me thinking though: maybe this is because we don't mythologize rock bands anymore. Maybe our culture's new heroes are Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg instead of Keith Richards and Jim Morrison.
