    Titanic. I watched it a couple of weeks ago :cry:

    But I would also say 28 Days Later. It's not really a conventionally sad movie but it does seem to dampen my spirits. I think because it's set in the UK and it makes me imagine what it would be like if that really happened. I think claustrophobic would be the word I would use to describe it.

    Also, I think the soundtrack has something to do with it:

    Into the Wild is sad but very inspiring to say the least ....

    Could not agree more. Had to watch it in GCSE R.S. It took everything I had not to just walk out of the room, it was so depressing.
    sameeee, I watched it in GCSE RE, was wondering how the school was even allowed to show us that, haha. :|

    Boy In The Striped Pyjamas - I had very strange reaction to that film. Usually if I watch a sad film, I just cry for a while and its fine. Yet with this one I didn't shed a tear, and yet I felt very insignificant and depressed afterwards.

    The Green Mile - Just shows whats so unjust in the world.

    Requiem for a dream - Need I say more. Possibly one of the most depressing story-lines I've ever witnessed.

    Brokeback Mountain - I guess its more a tear jerking than depressing, but having a best friend in the same situation, it really stuck with me.

    Sophie's Choice - Makes you realise how lucky you really are.

    One Flew over the cuckoos nest - Depressing yet utterly compelling.

    It's a wonderful film, one I have recommended a few times on here, and yes it awfully grim - but what aspects of iit did you study in RE? Of all the things the film touches on in the aftermath of the nuke, religion is one that isn't even mentioned as far as I remember,,,?

    The Boy In Striped Pyjamas was really harrowing. I just...I don't cry at films so I wasn't crying it just left me feeling sick and depressed at the end.

    I don't really understand why people cried at 'Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.' I didn't really like the fact that it turned a Holocaust-themed film into a tragedy about a Nazi family. Additionally, you wouldn't have had an 8 year old in an extermination camp able to develop a friendship like that. And I didn't feel it gave a great impression of what the Holocaust was actually like.

    The Pianist, on the other hand, is harrowing. It's heart wrenching to see how utterly alone Szpilman is towards that film, knowing how much he's lost and the struggle he's had to experience to survive. I read the book too and I don't think I've ever cried so much at a book as I did when I read the entries written by the German officer who saved Szpilman.

    DEFINITELY The Last House On The Left. I don't know why, but before watching it I assumed it was a ghost movie. Needless to say, came out shocked. And depressed.
