In 2016, Pat Buchanan wrote: “‘Angry white male’ is now an acceptable slur in culture and politics. In the popular culture of the ’40s and ’50s, white men were role models. They were the detectives and cops who ran down gangsters and the heroes who won World War II on the battlefields of Europe and in the islands of the Pacific.” Usually the best films for white advocats are classics. However, here are five films from the last 25 years with righteous angry white men in the leading roles.
Absolute Power (1997)
Clint Eastwood plays a professional burglar. While in a mansion he’s robbing, he witnesses an extra-marital affair that ends with murder. He has to figure out how to do the right thing – especially tricky, given who the murderer is. Available on Tubi.
Air Force One (1997)
Harrison Ford plays U.S. President James Marshall. When Kazakhstani terrorists hijack the President’s plane (Air Force One), he proves that he really did earn the Medal of Honor he received during the Vietnam War. Available on Tubi.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a lovelorn teen on a mission to find his ex-girlfriend’s killer. His high school’s bureaucracy is no help, and neither are the police. It’s up to him. Available on YouTube.
Running Scared (2006)
The late Paul Walker plays a young father living in a cesspool of crime and degeneracy. In the face of crooked cops and murderous mafiosos, and with plenty of twists and double-crosses, he stops at nothing to protect his family. This movie is extremely violent. Available on Tubi.
Gone Baby Gone (2007)
Casey Affleck plays a private investigator looking into the case of a missing toddler. Like the noir films from the 1940s, an investigation into one crime reveals a whole world of crime, but while the detective occasionally loses his cool, he never loses his integrity. Available on YouTube.
