    Aw, nerts. What a Fuckin’ gem.

    The dialogue is incredible. That to me is what elevates this picture to a higher notch. Performances, incredible; especially Seyfried, she is remarkably authentic. Oldman’s ability to bring Mank’s wit to life. Tom Burke’s masterful Orson impression. Dance’s eerily Hearst-resemblant stillness.

    The warm, analog sound paired with the vivid, crisp black & white imagery.
    The jazzy noir score. 
    The sizzles and softening.
    The scratches and burns.
    The reel-change pops.
