Fight Club | E3: A Smoking Baby The Big Hit Show

    • Society & Culture

In this episode, an unlikely piece of material— and an uncompromising director’s vision for that material— somehow survives the Hollywood machine, some potentially disastrous PR, and the disdain of a billionaire who doesn’t care for movies.
