Mank – Releasing on Streaming
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 90%

Herman J. Mankiewicz, played by Gary Oldman, is working on the screenplay for the film, “Citizen Kane.” As he works on it, he makes his way through 1930s Hollywood with all the wit and alcohol he can muster.

I could watch Gary Oldman in a film where he sits on a bench and just counts everyone that walks by. Everyone? EVERYONE!!! Lol, sorry had to work that in. If you are a fan of Citizen Kane, then this telling of the story from the other side will shine a light through the process.

A tale of recovery, and moving on, McDormand does a great job, as evident by reviews, showcasing the journey of a person abandoning their life and moving on. If you are looking for a drama to pull at your heart this is your film for the weak.

Arthur Bretnik, played by Aaron Eckhart, is hired to investigate a murder in the small town of Wander. However, this paranoid private investigator starts to become convinced that this case is somehow connected with the prior death of his daughter.

If you are looking for a more noir style film this week, then Wander will fill that need, with Aaron Eckhart set to do a pretty good job with this film. We love Eckhart and are glad to start seeing him pop up again in films.
