Hey all. I just saw there was a "Favorite Feel Good Movie" post..so I thought I would counter that.


I would choose:


Requiem for a Dream

"Shindler's List"


Wanted to see light fare at the movies one night.

"Maverick" was sold out.

Thought "This Spielberg movie is supposed to be good."

Boy, did I feel S**tty when I left.

A Great Movie!

I hope I never see it again!

Black Hawk Down.


The fact we as a people caved in, botched the exit, and gave bin Laden the boldness to execute 9-11 was not lost on us.


Fortunately it was a rental for Guys' Night In, so we all got to get smashed.

Legends of the Fall


"Murphy's Law" should be renamed "Ludlow's Law".


Heart-wrenching movie but an excellent one as well.

All the war movies I like to watch can fit into that category.

To those, I would add:


AI

Monster's Ball

The Color Purple

Eve's Bayou.

I would say, In the Bedroom. I just watched it the other night and it left me with a real empty feeling. Nothing like I thought it would be.

Pink Floyd's "The Wall" - depressing, but in a good way.

"Glengarry Glenross" - great movie and you won't be too depressed as long as you're out of sales by the time you're 30.

"Vagina Monologues" - depressing how could anything with such a promising title could be so boring.

Didn't we do depressing movies, like, two weeks ago? Or is this considered subtly different :D

Macbeth (the Roman Polanski version) -- Shakespear was a morbid bugger in general, but Polanski's adaptation is particularily bleak and soul crushing.

Glory -- A civil war movie centered around a colored regiment. I'm sure you can guess how it ends, but it is really well done.

Ghost Dog

Spartacus

Crossroads (With Brittney) -- Haven't seen it, but its very existence depresses me.

The most depressing film I've seen in recent years is "Breaking The Waves". Vickie loves depressing films, but she has to go see them by herself.

As before, I'll see your "Breaking The Waves" and raise you "Xiu Xiu: The Sent-down Girl" While not quite on the same level of grief and despair, I'd put "Barry Lyndon" in this thread too. "Fargo". "Das Boot". And of course, someone already said it but it bears mentioning again: "Pink Floyd: The Wall"!!!

Interesting! I chose Private Ryan as my "feel good" movie.


My favorite "feel bad", Falling Down.
