Aaron Sorkin said that, at the end of the movie, Zuckerberg feels remorse. David Fincher said he does not. What do you think?
I think he feels that – I think he's starting to realize that he hurt some other people, but I don't think that he feels that those decisions were the wrong ones. I think Mark's primary objective in the movie is the creation, maintenance and expansion of Facebook. And if something is in the way of that, that's an obstacle that needs to be destroyed, not something that needs to be accounted for as the highest priority.

The other character in the movie, Eduardo, is Mark's friend in college and bankrolls the initial operation – I think (he) values Mark, his relationship with Mark, much more highly than Mark values his relationship with Eduardo, and therefore when he's taking the company in a way that Mark feels is destructive to it, he doesn't – Mark doesn't dismiss Facebook, he dismisses Eduardo, because that's where his priorities lie.

If you look at it from that perspective, everything Mark does is justified. So at the end, I think he feels bad that he hurt somebody, but I don't think he feels that it was the wrong decision.
