Vulgar Auteurism

This list is complied from the films mentioned in Jack Lehtonen's Mubi list on vulgar auteurism, the films mentioned in the Vulgar Auteurist Tumblr, and some personal selections. I can't say I stand by all these films as great works of art (I still haven't even seen them all), but there are quite a few masterpieces and otherwise notable films listed.

There are 16 action films in this list released in the 1980s.
