Mank

Mank 2020 Full Movie Reviews

RELEASE DATE = November 13, 2020

Many movie watchers know the classic movie Citizen Kane, but what happened behind the scenes is the big question. In this biographical movie by David Fincher, viewers can take a look at the life of Herman J. Mankiewicz, played by Gary Oldman, and his journey to writing the screenplay for one of Hollywood’s best movies of all time.

avid Fincher (SevenThe Social Network) is back with Mank, his first new movie in six years, and Netflix has just released the first trailer. Fincher is re-teaming with the streaming service for his latest directorial effort, which takes a look at 1930s Hollywood through the eyes of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, played by Oscar-winner Gary Oldman (Darkest HourThe Dark Knight. Mankiewicz is known best for writing Citizen Kane, director Orson Welles’ timeless classic. As such, the movie will be heavily focused on the making of what is widely considered to be one of the greatest pieces of cinema ever made.

After a limited release in theaters, Mank will release on Netflix on December 4th. Although the movie has not been widely released, Mank is already considered a potential frontrunner for the 2021 Academy Awards. It was acclaimed for its brilliant direction by Fincher, performances by the cast, and black and white cinematography.

There was a time mere years ago when Netflix and online streaming, in general, was looked down upon as the poor man’s cinema. At that time, Netflix was best known for churning out Adam Sandler comedies and b-list films that were getting no buyers elsewhere. Now, Martin Scorsese, Spike Lee, and many other reputed filmmakers have deals with Netflix to produce content for the streaming giant. The latest Hollywood filmmaking royalty to join their ranks is David Fincher, who spoke about his deal with Netflix to the French magazine Premiere, as reported by The Playlist.
