A film that takes place in Scotland, from about '69-71:
Ring of Bright Water
Battleship Potemkin - Never thought a silent film could leave such a mark.
A Clockwork Orange. I wish Kubric would have had the balls to make it as the book was.
Dancer in the dark is the saddest movie ever made. If you like Bjork at all, watch the movie and prepare for sadness.
another +1 for Requiem for a Dream. I can't even hardly hear the name "Adrian" without cringing.
If the UK version is more upsetting, then I certainly won't be checking it out The thing that got me in the US version was the little boy.
There are elements of sadness in Star Trek II,III.
It's all on youtube. I'll check it out tonight.
Dancer in the Dark was SOOOOOOO messed up....it made Hotel Rwanda seem like a happy romp.
I know this isn't a movie per se, but this is quite possibly the most depressing video ever, even with the grating music:
synecdoche: new york does it for me. people hate on it so it's obviously not for everyone. i felt pretty numb the rest of the day after seeing it for the first time...
WOAH- I've been hitting wiki on the ones I've never heard of, & discovered this- I'd seen it eons ago, when it was new. I don't think I'll be watching it, though...
The Bucket List made me feel bad,also as I remember I felt bad after watching Meet Joe Black.
A few that stand out for me are:
Five Easy Pieces
The King of Marvin Gardens
The Day of the Locust
Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia
The Tin Drum
"The House of Sand and Fog" - Tragedy on a Shakespearean level.
That and "Space Balls" - but that's a different kind of sad.
A big 'ol +1 to "Ring of Bright Water". Saddest thing you'll ever see, no doubt.
"The Wall" is depressing, rather than sad in the sense we're talking here.
I'm really surprised nobody has mentioned "Midnight Cowboy" yet (unless I've missed it).
Hey Space Balls is fun.
That was quite heart-shattering, yes You could just tell the facial expression of Purley, even with his helmet on..
"The killing fields".
+1 to Brian's Song.
There was a HBO film last year called "Taking Chance" which tells the story of a Marine officer escorting a casualty of war from the bases in Dover, DE to his home town for burial. Very touching for me, as I was not aware that the escorting officer could not leave the coffin.
Yeah, don't underestimate the power of the Schwartz!
It brought back a lot of the memories of losing my own mom.
