Yup. Another awesome movie with a 'sad' ending.
That was pretty standard for dystopian SF films in the seventies. It was STAR WARS that broke that mold, at least where A-list sf movies were concerned.
I'm trying to think of exceptions, and each that pops in my head, I go "Nope...nope...nope."

For the sake of spoilers I'll just say that James Caan, Don Johnson and David Carradine movies are greatly outweighed by the films in your thesis. Even the last Dr. Phibes film has a happy ending...but for the wrong guy.
