"...it’s like watching Tiger Woods play a full round of miniature golf with the same intensity he brings to the Masters." -- David Ehrlich
I can't find better words atm to describe this experience of watching two great performers navigate what I might call a...gilded movie and direction.
Idk...Levinson just isn't clever enough to be in on the joke and the result is embarassing, such a slog to work through. You'd think pretty photography would help the viewing, but none…
Mank might end up being Fincher's Death Proof when we look back on his filmography. But I think Death Proof is kick ass and too often misunderstood, neglected; it's a fun deconstruction of cinema through the emulation of grindhouse. Fincher finds a similar approach in Mank. But because we're in a climate where movies only trend for a week, I'm afraid the film is bound to be misunderstood as well. Mank isn't an amazing film, but there's too much going on to immediately write it off.
