"People will think..." "What I tell them to think!": 5 notes on the ever eerily relevant Citizen Kane (1941)

1) Given its "classic" status, it is easy to forget that Orson Welles' Citizen Kane (1941) was made in a spirit of savage mockery of yellow journalism newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, a man whose media empire allowed him to guide mass public opinion as he pleased, even to the point of trying his durndest to destroy Citizen Kane. Who could we compare Kane to nowadays? A man who builds his career around lies? A man who, when he loses an election, turns to the headline "Fraud at polls!"...

A Year Into COVID And We’re Still Trying To Keep Our Brains Occupied: TPM’s Favorite Biographies And Memoirs

So, unbelievably (or maybe believably -- take your pick) we're hitting the one-year mark of quarantine life. TPM will get to celebrate this "momentous" occasion in about a week on March 11, the day the New York office started working remote. If you're like us, you've probably had a not-so-great year! And I'm not just talking about the number of demoralizing pandemic stories we covered -- we had the presidential election, an insurrection/attempted coup, horrible storms and Ted Cruz being the a...

‘Mank’ Production Team on Creating a Feast for the Eyes and Ears for the Netflix Period Film

In David Fincher’s “Mank,” bowing Dec. 4 on Netflix, a key sequence takes place at Hearst Castle, when Gary Oldman’s Herman J. Mankiewicz shows up drunk and unannounced at a lavish dinner party thrown by newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst, played by Charles Dance. Filming is normally not allowed at the actual estate, with Lady […]

David Fincher Originally Wanted to Cast Kevin Spacey and Jodie Foster in ‘Mank’ in the ’90s

David Fincher is notorious for having a very particular way of doing things. It’s gotten the filmmaker in the headlines a couple times: Oh, Gary Oldman had to do 100 takes; oh, production shut down because of Ben Affleck’s hat. But every now and then, one of those tics will prevent Fincher’s project from ever getting off the ground. See: the upcoming Mank, which had been a longtime passion project for Fincher, with a development history reaching back to the ’90s. Fincher’s father Jack wrote the...

‘Mank’: It’s Once Again Time to Point Out David Fincher Shoots Many Takes

You know the drill: anytime there’s a new David Fincher movie we are all required by law to talk about how many takes he shot. Cast members of the film in question come forward and say, “I shot a lot of takes!” We report it. Fincher rolls his eyes. Then we move on, only to revisit the story again whenever Fincher gets around to making another movie. After taking a hiatus from feature films, Fincher is back this year with Mank, and sure enough, stories are starting to trickle in about Fincher an...

‘Mank’ Review: David Fincher Creates a Gorgeous, Old School Hollywood Drama About Movies, Politics, and the Messy Art of Burning Bridges

“It isn’t enough to tell us what a man did. You’ve got to tell us who he was.” – Citizen Kane Herman J. Mankiewicz, genius Hollywood screenwriter, has been sent away to Arizona. Broken – his leg is in a thick cast following a car accident – and eager to get drunk at the drop of a hat, Mank – as everyone calls him – has been tasked with hammering out a screenplay for Hollywood’s new golden boy, Orson Welles. And Mank has a whopper of an idea: he’s going to write about newspaper tycoon William Ra...

‘Mank’ Trailer Breakdown: Who is Who in David Fincher’s New Hollywood Drama

Happy Mank day, everyone! The trailer for David Fincher‘s long-awaited return to feature films dropped today, and it’s stylish and cheeky in all the right ways. There’s even an old-timey Netflix logo to seal the deal. To be fair, though, this is really a teaser, so there’s not a whole lot of detail. It’s more like a mood piece introducing us to the basic story – alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz (Gary Oldman) has to write Citizen Kane, on the double! And make it snappy! It’s a true st...

‘The Alienist: Angel of Darkness’ Review: More Thrills, Fewer Chills in a Solid Dakota Fanning-Led Second Season

It was hard for The Alienist to escape comparisons to “True Detective in 19th century New York,” as the first season of this macabre crime drama came out just on the tail end of the HBO detective show’s pop culture domination. People were looking for another prestigious replacement for the crime drama, and despite some of the surface-level similarities — a serial killer who carves up their victims and leaves a series of grotesque clues, which a team of morally dubious detectives chase through t...

Amanda Seyfried Says David Fincher Required a Week’s Worth of Takes for One ‘Mank’ Scene

David Fincher is known for shooting many, many, many takes until he gets what he wants. And it looks like he hasn’t changed. Fincher’s return to feature directing, Mank, is due out on Netflix this year, and according to star Amanda Seyfried, one of her scenes required – at least in Fincher’s eyes – 200 takes and about an entire week to film. If you thought David Fincher had cooled it with his propensity for many takes, thing again! Speaking with Collider, Amanda Seyfried, who plays Marion Da...

Los Angeles’ First Olympics Changed It Forever

What sort of city did spectators, athletes and journalists see when they arrived in Los Angeles in the summer of 1932? It was, to be sure, not the same shambling village that had bid for and won the Olympics nine years before. LA’s population had doubled, to 1,470,516, during the decade. The dusty pueblo had burgeoned into a world center for moviemaking, oil drilling, and citrus production. No fewer than six daily newspapers covered the region, all now boisterously heralding the Olympic Games. O...

Nostalgia for a time when news was not free

The other day when I posted one of my columns to Facebook — hey, they don’t throw themselves into the mammoth moneymaking maw, given over gratis by wimpy old-school journalism to the social-media billionaires who have eaten our lunch — a Bay Area friend complained in the FB comments section: “Your paper has put up a pay wall, and I can’t read this!” I didn’t want to get into the economic weeds with him. All I wrote in reply was: “Baby needs new shoes.” (Baby may be 29 and married, living in New ...

These are the Southern California film locations from Best Picture nominees and winners

If they gave out Oscars for best use of Southern California locations, we know who the big winner would be at this year’s Academy Awards. Because even if you haven’t seen “Once Upon a Time … In Hollywood,” writer-director Quentin Tarantino’s ode to the film industry’s company town circa 1969, you probably know it’s a non-stop travelogue through the town of the title and surrounding environs. But it’s not the only locally shot film with a nomination: There are three up for a best picture Academy ...

‘Deadwood’ Movie Plot Teased by Ian McShane, Including a Returning Villain

After years of waiting, the Deadwood movie is almost here. I still can’t believe it myself, and I probably won’t fully accept it until I’ve actually sat down to watch it. For now, though, I can take solace in some new plot details from Al Swearengen himself, Ian McShane. McShane reaffirmed some things we’ve heard already: that the movie is all about the passage of time, and how much the surviving characters have changed since we last saw them. Get the Deadwood movie plot details below. Deadw...

Why Henry David Thoreau was drawn to yoga

The famed author was heavily influenced by Indian literature, informing his decision to self-exile on Walden Pond.He was introduced to these texts by his good friend's father, William Emerson. Yoga philosophy was in America a century before any physical practices were introduced. None Though yoga today is associated with expensive leggings and an infestation of Instagram selfies, the philosophical underpinnings have long predated the physical asana practice. In fact, the first century of yoga in...
