The Fincher Takes It All

Film journalist and filmmaker Nev Pierce joins me to discuss Mank, David Fincher’s latest film which is now available to watch on Netflix and in select cinemas.

Following screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish the screenplay for Citizen Kane, the film takes a look at Hollywood and politics.

Me and Nev discuss the film’s analysis of Hollywood liberalism, what it has to say about the idea of the auteur, how Fincher made it feel like an old classic and whether it really does have anything to do with Citizen Kane.

  1. So much good stuff popping up on the film. Can’t keep up 😛 But I will have plenty of reading material for the holidays 😉 Anyway I watched it twice so far, on my new 4K tv. It looked stunning… but for me the sound of Mank wins it all. What an amazing mix. It was like I was teleported to the theather seat. Stunning.

    Thanks for all the links.
