This is part 3 of a now 4-part series (screw chronology) because Mank is a movie with so many layers it demands its own episode!
While David Fincher is definitely not the greatest closet feminist of all time, Mank says a lot about Hollywood hierarchies, gender roles, politics and numerous power battles. It’s a masterpiece, and requires an explainer.
So Contrarah and Nick watched both Mank and Citizen Kane, to help them take you through all of the inside baseball that Fincher delivers about a certain Herman J Mankiewicz.
