    "Threads" was easily the most affecting nuclear holocaust movie I've ever seen. It had a documentary feel, and living in the U.S., I didn't know any of the actors, so there was no "big name" distraction. It was sad, bleak, gritty and didn't pull any punches. The Cold War was raging in the early to mid '80s, and the way the movie depicted the events leading to doomsday, it really made you think it could happen anytime. One of the saddest and scariest movies I've ever seen.
  2. +1 to Life is Beautiful and Up.
    Seen Life is beautiful several times, amazing movie. So beautifully cheerful in the beginning, ive unintentionally been calling my girlfriend of over 2 years princess since ive seen it recently.
    And i saw UP during my bus ride from here in northern VA to myrtle beach a lil over a week ago. really cute, sweet movie. Beginning is one of the greatest pieces of film, animated or otherwise, ive seen. really beautiful

    Lilya 4 Ever. it's a Russian flick (ended up watching it on google videos after no rental stores even had it in their catalog, much less in stock). both sad and depressing (spoiler: story of a teenage Russian girl sold into slave prostitution :spoiler)

    Brian's Song
    Sophie's Choice

    What Dreams May Come (One of my favorites)

    When Robin Williams isn't being funny or serious he can also be quite trippy (Final Cut, One Hour Photo).

    +1 on "Life is Beautiful".

    "Leaving Las Vegas".
  11. "boy a" was extremely sad. "mysterious skin" was very unsettling. i would recommend both, but "mysterious skin" in particular is not for the faint of heart.

    This century,for me? "The Boy in The Striped Pajamas" sad as dead puppies. No one in the theater could stand up let alone breathe after the last 5 minutes.
    Ever? "La Strada" by Fellini. It just goes darker and darker,you're not weeping at the end? Then run and hide yourself,you're not human.

    So much love. So much loss. So much Swayze.

    I practically have my period every time it comes on. Pottery! *swooon*
  20. Last summer I went up to our local public library and took out a movie called "All Quiet on the Western Front", a 1931 film starring a very young Lew Ayres. It's about a young German soldier's experiences at the front during the First World War. It graphically depicts the folly of war and the nationalism that leads up to it. A very sad movie, yet still relevant today, and for the future as well.
