Time & Tickets

Mankiewicz is an intelligent, astute writer and critic nicknamed ‘Mank’. Despite his successful career in 1930s Hollywood, Mankiewicz has a serious drinking problem. The screenwriter is instructed by Orson Welles to write the script for CITIZEN KANE. For Mankiewicz, the whole process is one big struggle: he has to remain sober while writing and the collaboration with Welles is difficult.
American director David Fincher is making his long-awaited comeback with MANK after his last film GONE GIRL (2014). MANK is a very personal project, the film was written in the 1990s by Fincher's father who passed away in 2003. The director had to wait a long time for his film project to get off the ground, mainly because he insisted on filming in black and white by analogy with CITIZEN KANE. The ranch where Mankiewicz wrote the script for CITIZEN KANE at the time was used as the shooting location. The director has assembled an impressive star cast for the film, including Gary Oldman in the role of Mank.

David Fincher, USA, 2020, 131 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Gary Oldman, Lily Collins, Tuppence Middleton, Amanda Seyfried, Tom Burke.
