I can’t provide a list of the films you are talking about, because I tend to avoid them like the plague. However, if one wants to indulge in some “psycho babble”, perhaps these films are a result of the disequilibrium around us, with fears and uncertainties finding a safe harbor when one is protected and rescued by “Daddy”. Mix that, with the shrinking, in some sectors (certainly not Wall St.), of white male privilege attempting to protect their prerogative, and you have the ingredients for the types of films you mentioned. Also, throw in the fact that these films are perfect vehicles for aging actors, who are now past the matinee idol stage.
Films are a reflection of the times, so this is certainly a subject for a much deeper discussion.
