With ‘Mank,’ David Fincher delivers career-defining film that could finally win him an Oscar
With 11 feature films under his belt, David Fincher is widely regarded as one of the leading directors of his generation, and one of the very best when it comes to tapping into the darker aspects of humanity. He has made a name for himself by presenting complex characters in uncomfortably realistic situations wherein they are forced to grapple with their most primitive emotions. His most well-received film, “The Social Network,” is far from the most harrowing tale in his catalogue, yet demonstrates his trademark style. In the decade since its release, his mostly true account of the creation of Facebook has stood as a lasting examination of toxic masculinity and the power of greed.

His latest film, “Mank,” is much lighter fare by comparison, but conveys a similar message. The film, which started streaming on Netflix last December, painstakingly traces the development of 1941’s “Citizen Kane,” often cited as the greatest film ever made.
