Film Review: Mank

Tue, Dec 01, 2020

Gary Oldman in David Fincher's Mank.

NETFLIX HAS two big budget prestige films out this month - Hillbilly Elegy, traditional Oscar bait and frankly one of the worst films I have seen this year; and Mank, from director David Fincher, which is a Hollywood biopic, traditionally a genre that does well at award season.

The deal with Netflix is a kind of cash for class scenario. The streaming service would love the respect big Hollywood studios have, so its goal is to win a best picture Oscar. It should have, two years ago, with Roma, but an open letter from Steven Spielberg about the merits of the theatre experience did enough damage to the film's campaign, while last year, Martin Scorsese's The Irishman also failed to win the award.
