Mank Was The Last Script Written By Jack Fincher
Once called Hollywoods greatest movie of all time Mank written by Jack Fincher, Father of the renowned David Fincher is also sliding into the love of Hollywood movie With Gary Oldman as the alcoholic, self-destructive writer of “Citizen Kane,” director David Fincher has made a near-great movie about what’s in the argument as the greatest of all time.
All Shot in black and white to breathtakingly evoke the 1930s, the film cleverly adopts a time-hopping format intended to approximate the structure of the movie at its core.

Folks in “Mank” talk a lot about family. Herman’s brother, Joe Mankiewicz, on the receiving end of this particular rant, went on to make “All About Eve.” Mank’s son Frank Mankiewicz grew up to be one of the first presidents of NPR, which has absolutely nothing to do with the film. Mank’s connection to Marion Davies came through her nephew – all of which gets extra resonance from the fact that “Mank’s” director, David Fincher, is working from a script written by his late father, Jack. And a quip-spewing, name-dropping, time-fracturing marvel it is, even if there’s a lot of it – a complaint that Jack Fincher preemptively notes was also levelled at “Kane’s” script.
Real-life in 1934 scripted by Jack Fincher in 1997 for a movie released in 2020, where darned if it doesn’t sound fresh all over again in “Mank,” a black-and-white portrait of Hollywood’s golden age that’s all about moral, political and personal shades of grey.
Mank will be releasing in Netflix on December 3 rd.
