Scott Hardie: One critic said that Mank is Fincher's most playful film, which, no. Plenty of people dislike Fight Club, but I don't know anyone who would say that it's not playful. And beyond that, I'd also put Se7en, The Game, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Gone Girl, and even the first couple of episodes of House of Cards in the "playful" column of Fincher's filmography. Mank has loads of verbal wit and inventive ideas, all of which made it better, but it's not like this is the first time that Fincher has made a black comedy. Come on. − April 12, 2021 • more by Scott
