Am I the only one who sees a bit of an oxymoron here? Sorry to be
playing the cranky role, but, while I think any subject can produce a
great film, it seems to me that if what is meant is comic book super
hero then such films are not "undependent."

If that is *not* the only thing that is meant, then, obviously, "The
Art of Vision" / "Dog Star Man," which, rather beautifully, is about
the failure of "hero."
