Mank, WATSON by Jim Horwitz

Very pleased to have finally seen David Fincher’s cinephile film “Mank” this weekend on Netflix. While a film about the penning of the “Citizen Kane” script might not be for everyone, the film is a technical marvel to behold with Oscar-worthy supporting roles across the board. I can almost certainly guarantee “Best Supporting Actress” for Amanda Seyfried, and nominations for Best Film, Director, Score, Cinematography, Editing, and Original Screenplay. The real showstopper for me was Tom Burke as Orson Welles who might, literally, be on screen for as many minutes as Boba Fett in “The Empire Strikes Back,” but the effect is exactly the same: electrifying. – That’s Hollywood!
