[5.50/10] Mank (2020)

Mank (2020)

Quick Review: The crisp black-n- white cinematography and authentic period settings transport to the '30s era, Oldman acts his heart out, and Seyfreid shines bright, but "Mank" ends up being a self-absorbed and overwritten 'love letter to old films', alternating dull, draggy, overly talky scenes with real baffling flashbacks, whose incoherent, monotonе story with no real tension or drama lacks soul as much as the monochrome visuals lack color, but worse, any of Fincher's flair to narrate.

I don't mind old movies in black and white but I'm not much on new ones in black and white.

Alex, same here. That's why I skipped films such as The Artist.
