    The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 literally broke my heart... would I ever see a vampire as deathly pale and dashingly stony-faced like Edward Cullen ever again? Or even a sweaty teenager who turns into an adorable werewolf?

    It's an old Japanese film from the 1950s, and the only Japanese film (apart from animations i.e. Miyazaki) I've ever seen.

    It's called Sansho the Bailiff.

    I always thought it was hilarious when the seagull tells them to piss off.

    I'm unsure whether it's because of my age when I saw it, but This is England REALLY affected me tbh.

    Requiem For A Dream... Felt like a horrendous come down after
    Second both of these. And probably Let the Right One In (Swedish version) as well.

    Really good shout! The American version was absolute dross.

    Requiem for a Dream is another good call - the 'ass-to-ass' scene stayed with me a long time.

    I was really drained after The Basketball Diaries, too. Harrowing portrayal of drug addiction.

    I've managed to avoid the American version.

    I just thought of some more:

    American Psycho
    Donnie Darko
    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
    American Beauty
    Her
    Never Let Me Go (not a very good film, but quite draining)

    Agree with all of these - Her was my favourite film of 2014.

    Never Let Me Go is a great book.

    Melancholia. I absolutely loved it but I needed it to end. If I was watching it at home I would have definitely paused it for a bit to give myself a break; it was so hard to get through. It didn't even make me want to cry; emotionally drained is actually the right phrase for how it made me feel.
