Mank ★★★★

fincher's self-critique, and an expansion on the themes of the social network: the complicity of being an abettor to progress in institutionally oppressive systems, the plastic social realities we retreat to as a coping mechanism, and the rare bursts of greatness when a combination of arrogance, selfishness, and stupidity allows their tools to be used against them.
