femcel films

a list of “femcel” reaction films to the ones classed as “incel” films: the american psychos, fight clubs, and jokers of the world.
none of this is to say i don’t think either set of films is more or less valuable — these are a powerful canon of films centred on the female gaze, the endurance of suffering, and the power (and abuse of power) of women!
