1930’s Hollywood is reevaluated through the eyes of scathing social critic and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish the screenplay of Citizen Kane (1941).
Gary Oldman is usually good, but the real standouts are Amanda Seyfried and Tom Burke (Orson Welles). I don’t normally like movies about The Business, but this is high quality work with great attention to detail. Amazing to see how we still observe some of the customs from the 1940s. David Fincher is one of my favorite directors, but much of this was shot so dark, I could barely see the faces on screen.
See it on the Big Screen
Thank you to Mr Netflix for giving me access to watch this via Digital Streaming so I could make an intelligent and informed opinion when casting my vote for the 27th Annual SAG Awards. However, a big, sprawling movie like this really should be seen on the Big Screen in a community setting. I wish you had a Screening for me or (at the very least) offered Movie Cash. Perhaps this is due to COVID-19?
