    Mank

    ★★½

    A success in its recreation of the period, presented in evocative layers with the typical Fincher coolness. But in almost every other respect, it’s a slog and a failure. From a scholarly aspect, the film is mostly poppycock; no attempt is made to explain the psychology behind the political and socio-political decisions of the time, let alone of these specific individuals, assuming that anyone who is watching should already be intimately familiar with Citizen Kane (1941).

    Summerland

    Hopelessly corny bit of British nostalgia, filmed in rose-coloured wholesomeness and ethereal costumes with a twist ending that is both outrageous and immediately foreseeable.
