    ★★★

    For the most part, Netflix’s ‘Mank’ is quite enjoyable. Stunningly shot by Erik Messerschmidt (in his debut role as cinematographer), with an incredible score from the always-great pairing of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, lined with top notch performances from an A-list cast, all under the assured direction of David Fincher, ‘Mank’ should be a surefire home run.

A film many have called the pinnacle of science fiction cinema, a film that has entranced viewers since its release almost 52 years ago, a film…

    ★★★★

There’s just so many possibilities within the genre, so many different ideas and themes that can be conveyed and told in many different ways. The possibilities are endless, really. And within that greater genre, there are many smaller sub-genres, where more specific themes and motifs may…
