    I guess I was talking about the opinion of general film twitter and awards chatter but, yes those numbers do say it’s well liked

    Actually Mank is a work of fiction, without much accurate history in it. So no, I don't think you really need to watch Citizen Kane first. A big chunk of the movie isn't even about Kane anyway. In fact, the more you know about the history the more you might be distracted by how removed from the history that Mank is. That being said, coming from someone who has seen Kane close to ten times, yes, you should watch Kane regardless of Mank. Mank is a markedly inferior movie to Kane (most movies are), and if you only have two hours to spare and both movies in your queue, it's an easy decision.

    I scored a copy of the Coffee Table Book for the movie. There's a section about the score with an interview with TR and AR. I'm super busy with work/family stuff but I'll upload pictures of the pages at some point soon.

    I got a free second. Here they are. It's just three pages. I have only thumbed through the book so if there is anything else related to the score I will add it. Sorry if the pictures aren't the best but I didn't want to break the spine to flatten the pages. Here's a link to the photo album I created for them, the pictures may be better there than copy and pasted here.

    Thanks so much @Fadeout54321 — gotta ask though, can you make out on the page what that design is on TR's coffee mug?

    It is really hard to tell what is on the mug. Definitely looks like a person or a cartoon character or something. Here's the best i could do for a picture of the picture...

    My first thought is it's one of his kids as some sort of personalized gift.

    Photoshop thread would be a perfect place to resolve that mug mystery...

    My first guess was also Nosferatu. The Bernie meme has the mittens in his lap and I think I remember seeing a pic of Nosferatu with his hands to the sides.

    "...brown tracksuit..." What the fuck?

    Edit: I think this finally puts a nail in the Fight Club: The Musical coffin...at least in terms of Fincher's involvement. And probably for good reason.

    There's probably more ways that project could go wrong than ways it could go right, IMO. I say that as someone who absolutely LOVED both the book and the movie.

    That was a great read, thanks for posting it! I really hope these guys go on to collaborate many, many more times. They're perfect together.

    The comments for that article are really negative on Mank.

    Is the Oscars going to be a live non-zoom event with a red carpet and everything?

    With the limited space though I can’t see the music nominees being invited, never mind

    This came up recently, all the nominees have been asked to attend in person but with limited audience, better than zoom at least

    So... Long time since I visited this thread. What's the speculation on the street date for the Mank vinyl?

    If Trent and Atticus attend the Oscars physically, which table do they sit at? The Mank table or the Soul table???

    The tables would be next to each other with each of them sitting on one, but still next to each other.

    Sooner rather than later? Maybe tomorrow? Maybe not?

    Which is to say...soon.

    It would be incredibly awkward if they sat at the Soul table then won for Mank! At the end of the day, who knows how the Academy voted? They might not win at all! Although I can’t see Soul losing personally, it’s a possibility

    Aren't the Oscars held in a Theater with regular theater seating? Unless they changed the format because of Covid and they are having tables?

    I just checked and you’re right, I must have been confusing them with the Golden Globes
