#20 Mank

February 8th, 2021

No, we’re not discussing the residents of Manchester in this week’s review, it is all about the latest David Fincher release, ‘Mank’. The film tells the story of Herman Mankiewicz and the process he went through when writing the screenplay for ‘Citizen Kane’.

This black and white feature gives plenty of nods to the cinematic era of which ‘Citizen Kane’ was written. Loaded with historical context and packed with depictions of famous indivduals, there is a lot to love in this film for the classic cinema fan.
