‘MANK’ and the the life of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz

With the new biopic ‘Mank‘ examining the life of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz and his role in the creation of Citizen Kane enjoying a brief theatrical run before it arrives on Netflix on Dec. 4th, Stephen & Carsten follow up their previous dive into the work of Citizen Kane mastermind Orson Welles with a look at the career of Mank director David Fincher. From Alien 3 to Gone Girl, with compelling thrillers like The Game, Panic Room and Zodiac along the way, plus the insightful and riveting The Social Network, Fincher is a filmmaker of consummate¬†skill who consistently keeps our eyes glued to the screen.
