male director telling women he is “one of the good ones”

haven’t seen most of these, just going off the suggestions of others

1. typically follows a female character’s perspective 

2. themes centre around the evils of men/suffering of women at the hands of men

3. film may include female empowerment, but typically is infrequent/only shown during the final act
