    People who say "Requiem for a Dream" has a lot to learn (although it is depressing as all hell).

    The Talented Mr Rippley - It depresses me because I had to study it for A-Level a few years ago and it's just so so so dreadful! I fell asleep through it twice.

    Yea, same here. That ads a sense of melancholy to the ending, which is sad ass hell.

    CTHD. It's not really the 'depressing' effect though, I think it's the artistical value which makes it a 'heavy' movie.

    Most movies based off of real life people tend to be depressing. Most of them end in a rather depressing way as well.

    THe one that comes to mind is "What dreams may come" It overall has a so called happy ending, but the whole thing is too dramatic for me... deaths of loved ones...Maybe because someone in my family had just died when i watched it, and was a bit much at the time..but i still refuse to watch that movie again...

    and the butterfly effect had several depressing moments, but i'll still watch that every now and then.

    That was more sad than depressing.

    I can't really find a depressing picture, I think Grave of Fireflies was a bit depressing, but thats an anime.

    @Haruka: people also create music threads, but rarely in the music department. :-/

    As for sad/depressing movies:

    Leaving Las Vegas
    American History X
    Dead Man Walking
    Mystic River
    Boys Don't Cry
    .
    .
    .
    Too many to name (and I can't remember any more XD), but those are some of my faves.

    I'd have the go with The Last Samurai. Oddly sad, even though it's filled with action.

    Well "American History X" had a sad ending, "Poetic Justice" really tried hard to make people sad and angry, "Glory" was another one. Seeing Morgan Freeman die is almost a no no in movies.
