Based on the initial reaction to “Mank”, it appears that David Fincher has an Oscar figure in his hands.
The first reaction to David Fincher’s “Mank” came from film critics and reporters, and the reaction was strong, although the script-intensive storytelling did not sound appealing to everyone. Netflix received 10 Oscar nominations for Martin Scorsese’s “Irish” in the online and offline categories earlier this year, and as critics became enthusiastic about its film photography and production , “Mank” seems to be moving in the direction of double-digit nomination. Design, costume and performance, especially Gary Oldman and Amanda Seyfried.
For Fincher, “Mank” marked a return to film production after “Gone Girl” in 2014. The director worked on a number of Netflix TV projects during the transition, including the serial killer series “Mindhunter” and the animated anthology “Love Death + Robots”. The relationship between Fincher and Netflix can be traced back to “House of Cards”, which is the first internal TV project of the streaming media company, helping usher in the era of Netflix film and television works.
“It can be said that’Mank’ is dense, pleasant, and a kick (albeit challenging) for anyone interested in Hollywood history,” wrote Steve Pound of The Wrap. “It’s hard for me to imagine that’Mank’ will not become a heavyweight for Oscars. At this point, I think it is a potential leader in many fields, including photography, film editing, art direction, original soundtrack and even pictures and directors. .”
Deadline’s Pete Hammond added: “Expect to be nominated for Best Picture, directed, Alderman as best actor, and actress Amanda Seyfried who plays Marion Davies ( Amanda Seyfried, Eric Messerschmidt’s stunning black and white photography, Donald Graham Burke’s work design, Trish Summerville’s sweet costumes Design, film editing by Kirk Baxter, soundtrack by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, makeup, sound and visual effects There may also be supporting actors competing, especially in the battle between Charles Dance’s Hearst and Arliss Howard’s Louis B. Mayer , But in this category of people, they may be a prospect in a crowded year.
“Mank” will be shown in selected theaters on November 13, and then on Netflix globally on December 4. Check out the reaction to the latest news from Fincher in the post below.
MANK: Excellent craftsmanship and a strong transformation from Amanda Seyfried, but also the obsession with selecting and selecting historical relics shocked the seemingly obsessed movie fans , And Upton Sinclair has more ter sounds than anyone needs. 🎥🍸

#Mank is an extraordinary sight. Every shot is carefully crafted, and you often want to stop the movie just by looking at it. A fanatical and true return that classic movie fans will love. Are you a Hollywood story lover? This is for you pic.twitter.com/39N7fLOOv5

MANK is a peculiar maze of movies, an exciting and unpredictable way to deconstruct Hollywood history in its own language. No, you won’t get a certain “Citizen Kane” background story (&Orson unscathed. You will clearly understand its meaning.

#MANK is beautifully shot. Erik Messerschmidt’s film works are extremely exquisite, and Trish Summerville’s costumes are excellent. This is a craft feast, Trent Reznor (Trent Reznor) and Atticus Ross (Atticus Ross) scored brilliantly. #MANK Superb craftsmanship and visual enjoyment. #OSCARS pic.twitter.com/h0FQOdFyyd

#Mank has a lot to appreciate technically. Production, photography, sound and scoring are the strongest elements and first choices for #Oscars.
This is an AP film history course for film fans, which may alienate some general audiences. Arliss Howard and Tom Pelphrey are excellent. pic.twitter.com/FQAQa66iA9

MANK is not really related to the production of “Citizen Kane”. This is how the Hollywood machine propped up and fell quickly. The superb script and structure, technical marvels, are peculiarly related. Except for Arliss Howard, Tom Pelphrey and Amanda Seyfried, everyone else performed well. #Mank pic.twitter.com/mWawolXQyE

I like that David Fincher’s father has the only screenwriting credit for MANK (an excellent movie that tells how difficult the movie has become)

David Fincher has a good relationship with #Mank. It is dazzling & chaotic, specially designed for movie lovers. A keen and clever criticism of the golden age of Hollywood, and a homage to dreams of perfect aftertaste. Seyfried won. The photography of Erik Messerschmidt is a luxury. Editor Kirk Baxter got the highest score pic.twitter.com/c6GsK2muN2

“Mank” is our much-needed love letter from the movie this year. It is based on another wonderful turn of Gary Oldman and a truly amazing story by Amanda Seyfried. For an exciting performance, he deserves all performance awards. I like this movie very much.

David Fincher’s #Mank is a helluva work. A smart and fascinating journey to a bygone era. Explore Hollywood, politics and ideals in the 1930s. Gary Oldman is perfect, Tom Pelphrey is impressive, and Amanda Seyfried is great. The photography is gorgeous and the scores are magical. A love letter. pic.twitter.com/yRcQUKBVLl

Yes, the filmmaking style is very interesting, but it is difficult to maintain the passion for these things throughout the film. “Wait, *another* fade out! Wow, this is still “mono”!
