5 Films That Centre Around Film-Making

Last week we saw the release of a tease trailer for the new film by David Fincher Mank (2020). This film is written by Fincher’s father Jack Fincher and is about “screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz and his battles with director Orson Welles over screenplay credit for Citizen Kane (1941)”. In the list below, I am focusing on 5 similarly-themed films that usually escape this categorisation on the Internet.

Explained: David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive”

In Mulholland Drive, a person’s subconsciousness is on full display for us to see and try to make sense of. This intelligent and thought-provoking  film is a real “brain-teaser” where appearances mislead, nothing is what it seems, and reality and wishful thinking intertwine.
