Movie Review: MANK

Movie Review: MANK


Director: David Fincher
Starring: Gary Oldman, Amanda Seyfried, Lily Collins, Charles Dance, Arliss Howard, Tuppence Middleton, Tom Burke

The American Film Institute has twice proclaimed Citizen Kane the greatest film of all time in their Top 100 countdowns. The new film Mank is another examination of that film. The title “Mank’ is the nickname for Citizen Kane screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz played by fellow Oscar winner, Gary Oldman. It’s 1940 and Orson Welles is given carte blanche to make any movie he wants and given total creative control over it. Mank’s screenplay is on a tight deadline for Welles, but his broken leg and alcoholism are getting in the way of finishing his script which poses as a scathing take down of William Randolph Hearst, played ferociously by Charles Dance. It’s now in select theaters and will be streaming on Netflix December 4
