Original Content podcast: David Fincher presents a compelling character study in ‘Mank’

“Mank” is a change of pace for director David Fincher — instead of exploring the world of startup backstabbing (“The Social Network”), political backstabbing (“House of Cards”) or actual stabbings (“Seven,” “Zodiac,” “Gone Girl,” “Mindhunter” etc.), Fincher takes us back to ’30s and ’40s Hollywood. Working from a script by Fincher’s late father Jack, the movie is shot and edited to pay homage to the classic studio films of that era — especially “Citizen Kane,” whose co-writer Herman Mankiewicz (...

"Roadkill" is one of those classy British miniseries that looks right at home on PBS' Masterpiece, even though it's a contemporary story. But this tale of a politician wrestling with twin scandals -- one involving corruption, the other in his personal life -- seems quaint against the backdrop of modern politics, as fans of shows like "Veep" and "House of Cards," once seen as enjoyably over the top, have observed.
