Cinemaholics is what you Mank of it. Which is why we’re reviewing David Fincher’s latest film, Mank, now streaming on Netflix and starring Gary Oldman, Amanda Seyfried, and Charles Dance. Manks in advance for listening. We also review Sound of Metal starring Riz Ahmed and Olivia Cooke, Black Bear starring Aubrey Plaza and Christopher Abbot, and Godmothered starring Jillian Bell, Isla Fisher, and June Squibb.
We had an out-of-body experience trying to review Brandon Cronenberg’s trippy new sci-fi horror film Possessor, which stars Andrea Riseborough, Christopher Abbot, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Sean Bean. After that, we dive into the endless charms of Kirsten Johnson’s new documentary Dick Johnson is Dead. And since it is October, why not add another horror film, Scare Me, which is now on Shudder. Last, there’s Save Yourselves! — a new indie comedy starring Sunita Mani and John Paul Reynolds.
