    really would like to find a chunk of time to sit down and watch this movie but with a new baby here, it's rare that i have more than an hour to do anything uninterrupted :/

    as a rule, i try not to listen to the scores before i've seen the films but i might have to eschew that rule this time around. a lot easier to have music on while doing stuff heh

    We put up our Christmas tree with the soundtrack playing in the background. Fit quite nicely with what we were doing. 10/10, would recommend.

    This score is soundtracking our advent rather nicely, too. Christmas and jazz go together well.

    EDIT: Just watched the review, going to watch anyway...
    Watched it today. I have a divided opinion. On the one hand the writing and dialogues are very elegant and pleasant, as are the direction and settings. I liked the character of Mank. Visuals and camera work are very slick, I would say maybe too much but I know it has been Fincher's style for a few movies. My issue is that for nearly half of the movie I had a hard time really grasping the stakes and delving into the story. I did though in the second half, but when things come together in the end, I nearly felt the movie (which is pretty long) ended too quickly.

    Good movie still.

    Review of the movie, alongside Mank's actual grandson Ben, who is a well known movie critic, TCM host and leftie pundit (one of the few center left guys I trust). He gives some more personal insight into the man and his family.

    watched it again for the 2nd time. even better the 2nd time around. I wasn't as "lost" in the dialogue/characters, and picked up so many other little things in the conversations too. a movie that is so relevant to the modern times. a masterpiece.

    funny thing is, the first time I watched it I thought it was a slow burn, but the 2nd time, I felt it was very fast paced! a movie never had that effect on me before...

    I haven't yet, but wondered if others had got the extra's from that $25 (or more) Bandcamp download. If so, any thoughts? More of the same, or worth a listen in it's own right?

    Definitely worth a listen, the demo versions in particular!

    I really like the demo stuff, because itís Trent and synths and stuff, not a separate orchestra. Which is fine, but itís nice to have both

    I'm really enjoying this score. Obviously its so different to anything else they've done (although the demo versions feel more familiar), but I find it very uplifting and the different styles, instruments & arrangements really present a varied listening experience. Love it.

    Attention, collectors! Just found out from a film reviewer friend that an FYC version of the score exists, as he received his copy in the mail today. Here's a couple pics he sent me.

    Excellent interview - goes really in depth on the making of Mank, including a lot of very technical things about demoing, mixing it to sound old, recording and managing an orchestra during a pandemic, etc.

    The original link was posted, but this is a handy YouTube version! I couldn't make it through this before because Variety's website won't let you switch to another browsing tab without pausing the video.

    I bought the FYC 2-CD package the other day for $50. Should get to me by early next week, with the holiday mail slowdown. Has anyone confirmed if it varies in any way from the digital release..?

    The FYC CDs are the same as the original digital soundtrack.
