That’s the Thing – Mank

"Whoever controls the media, the images, controls the culture." Allen Ginsberg

Just in time for awards season, Alex and Nick dive into the life of Citizen Kane scribe, Herman J. Mankiewicz, in David Fincher’s Mank. The Kouhi Brothers discuss the history surrounding the major figures featured in the film, as well as their views on Fincher’s take on a controversial slice of Hollywood history.

Also featured this week, a pair of Welles related projects: one a Kafka adaptation, the other a behind-the-scenes look at the filmmaker engaging in extensive conversation with star Dennis Hopper while shooting his final film, The Other Side of the Wind.
