I've brought this up before, but I have a very general question about the Fantomas type of story - I keep forgetting exact names for it, but the kind of story where the colorful villain is the main character repeatedly, and you're expected to "root" for him in a tongue-in-cheek way, but not EVERY way. My question is, in how many stories is a character like that changed from a colorful villain into a sort of "anti-hero"? I know it's a fine line in a way, but there are some examples I can name. There's "Kilink: Strip and Kill," which is evidently the only Turkish Kilink movie that makes him the "good guy," but it manages to also make him as ruthless as always, simply by making him a ruthless spy for the country, who gets rid of a lot of other spies. And even though my copy isn't dubbed or subtitled, that seems to be at least part of the idea of the original "Kriminal" (as opposed to the sequel) - he's a murderous thief who gets rid of OTHER thieves (murderous or not, I'm not sure about that part), or at least one of them. And even though I only saw it very early on, I think that might be the idea for "Flashman." Again, it's a very general question, but are there any other films in the whole "Fantomas" / "Kriminal" etc. category (from any given country) that take the VILLAIN who goes on those killing sprees idea and sort of nudge it into that anti-hero you're actually expected to CHEER idea?
