It might be more edifying to identify those films - if any - that do not
use an _unreliable narrator_, since the concept in this thread has being
stretched to mean any protagonist, p.o.v. or plot device, wily-nily. Surely
the thrust of mainstream academic criticism of the past 30 or so years has
been that all literary and filmic utterances (productions) are
_unreliable_, carrying personal and collective socio-political agendas,
which are frequently hidden or camouflaged, and we must tease them apart
(deconstruct) to discover the _real meaning_ (according to whose agenda, ad
nauseum).
 
So, what fictional film does not have an unreliable narrator?
