When I interviewed David Fincher about Mank for @vulture and @nymag, I asked him why he never takes a writing credit. We didn't have room for his full answer, but it's illuminating, and I'm happy to share it here.

@MarkHarrisNYC @vulture @NYMag I think this also speaks to the songwriting credit arguments that plague bands. How many bands have broke up over such squabbles? Everybody wants a cut. It’s both ego and greed.

@MarkHarrisNYC @vulture @NYMag Gold dust. What I also learned from Fincher is to always push the script hard. Trickier to do when you’ve got both the writer’s and director’s hats on.

@MarkHarrisNYC @vulture @NYMag I love this very much. I'll add a tiny personal note of experience with him, that he very kindly -- and for hours and hours -- gives copious notes.

@MarkHarrisNYC @vulture @NYMag Hmmm I see where he is coming from (a very refreshingly honest and humbling place no doubt) but this is slippery slope...a complicated discussion for sure.

It dawned on me sad that Dwyer had to wear a SKC jersey for this. #catsforcorpse
