Mank (out Nov 19) is a biographical drama that delves into the process and motivation behind screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz (Gary Oldman) as he wrote the script for one of the great films of all time, Citizen Kane. Provided you've done a little background reading beforehand (seeing the 1941 movie will help too), you'll be impressed by what director David Fincher (The Social Network) has been able to achieve in terms of narrative, performances and production design. Grade: A-.
