Scorpio Rising

Scorpio Rising ★★★

Icons and idolatry in the form of worship of masculinity and violence, all the way up to the point of of drawing out the connection with fascism. The pop music soundtrack for this slaps too, I think this is the earliest film I've ever seen that does that rather than (most commonly) orchestrated music or sometimes jazz, and it's one of several factors that contributes to this feeling a long way ahead of its time. Extra credit for making actual neo-Nazis very upset at the time.
