Showdown: Father

God I really hate that they named this one "Come to daddy"

Also wow a shocking number of my favorite films are missing dads - every film I've given 5 stars to except Dear Zachary and Donny Darko features 0 fathers to any main character and no main character is a father (I guess In Bruges villain has kids but ?). Even expanding to my 4.5 stars there's just a shocking number of movies with a dead, absent, or deadbeat father. Maybe this is part of why I'm so scared to have kids.
