Mank Reviews Signal An Early Oscar Frontrunner

Recommended Posts



Early reviews for Mank are in and they show promising signs for a potential frontrunner at the 2022 Academy Awards. The film is directed by David Fincher and is his first return to the film world since 2014 when he released Gone Girl. In the meantime, Fincher has worked primarily on television projects. Much of his attention was placed on both House of Cards and Mindhunter, but with Mindhunter season 3 unlikely to happen, the way was paved for Fincher to begin filming for Mank in November of 2019.

Mank is a bit of a passion project for Fincher. His father, Jack Fincher, completed the script for the film in 2003 before his death. The film stars Gary Oldman, Amanda Seyfriend, Charles Dance, and Lily Collins. About old Hollywood, Oldman plays real-life screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz and follows him as he completes the screenplay for Citizen Kane. The film also details the troubles that arose between Mankiewicz and director Orson Welles before and during the production of Citizen Kane. The film is set to hit Netflix on December 4th after a limited run in theaters.

Early reviews have been released ahead of the film's limited theatrical run, which begins on November 13th. The reviews indicate that Fincher's return to cinema is a welcome one, with his new film being an early frontrunner for the 2022 Academy Awards in several categories. Much praise is being given to both the performances and the cinematography, with Fincher choosing to shoot the film in black and white.
