The hosts of the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, are not quite the “Film Bros” that completely worship at the altar of David Fincher thanks to Fight Club or Seven. However, he’s one of the few directors both guys respect highly and call appointment viewing. The guy simply doesn’t make uninteresting films, so they were here for his follow up to Mank.
