One Man Army aka Hard Cunts

Cinema that mines the non-binary id of geist anxiety apropos the toxic gesticulations of Patriarchy and its Kyriarchal residue as channeled through the One Man mythos. One Man who has suffered like No Other Man. One Man who has seen more suffering than is fit for one lifetime. One Man who knows the True Face of Hell and thusly finds the resolve in his heart to become a bastion of mercy... right up until he doesn't...

Not a definitive/comprehensive list, focuses on my own preferences, largely 70s/80s. Recommendations and discussion most welcome.
