I found The Mist to be pretty depressing. It would have been so much cooler if they at some point had broken into musical-type song and dance.

I'm surprised that so few people have mentioned the Green Mile. Maybe I was just in a weird mood that night, but I cried at that movie harder than anything I've ever seen.
I probably would have cried during I Am Legend,

but I was sitting next to my dad, in a packed movie theater. I'm not nearly that comfortable with my sexuality to cry in that situation.

P.S. Hey repiv, what's it feel like to have your opinion proven wrong?

I was fine with that movie until the ending, which was a deliberate FUCK YOU straight from Darabont to the audience. That pissed me off. The original story actually ends hopefully, despite the unrelenting horrors throughout.

Spoiler:
I would have even accepted it if the film had ended with everybody committing suicide in the car. But going, "JUST KIDDING LOL" after such an emotionally traumatic event as watching a father murder his friends and child... that just pissed me off.


Afterwards I had to watch "7 Up", which was pleasant and amusing and full of cute children not getting eaten by tentacle monsters, in order to feel better.

I haven't actually watched the movie, but know what was done to the ending. I personally like the sound of it. It sounds to be a really funny ending. Does that make me a bad person? :P

Naw. I might have liked the idea of the ending, had I heard it and not seen the film. But when the proceeding two hours is tense and you're actually feeling for these characters? It's a low blow.

Personally, I found Donnie Darko fairly depressing, just because of the final scene with Gretchen Ross and Donnie's mum. I dunno, I can't really say why, it just does.
Also, along with many others, Requiem for a Dream.

I also found Pi by Darren Aronofsky fairly depressing, mainly due to the amount of pain you see Max go through, and what he resorts to in the end (I won't post spoilers, as you need to see this film if you haven't).

semicolon wrote:They were on the beach or whatever, and she said something like, "so what do we do?" And he said, "enjoy it."

Agreed, I thought this bit was just cruel of Michel Gondry. Though it also made me happy in some way, mainly because you see their acceptance of the whole event.

Another one I found a bit depressing was The Jacket. There is something about a man seeing when he is meant to die that is saddening...

I'm sure there are a load more, just not that I can think of them now.

I have not checked the whole thing, but has anyone pointed out Dogville?
made me cry a whole bunch, to the point the first time I watched it my then boyfriend wanted to shut it off because I was getting so upset.
Still, awesome movie. Only thing Nicole Kidman did I really liked.

Also, it is like watching a play in a black box theater, where the walls of the set are marked in think lines on the floor.

It was amazing.

A lot of Bergman films people tend to find depressing, particularly Cries and Whispers.
Vittorio De Sica films, like The Bicycle Thief and Umberto D. A lot of neorealist films tend to be depressing.
Kurosawa's The Bad Sleep Well is pretty depressing, probably one of the most of his films. Other films like Ikiru can be pretty depressing too.
Most parts of Kieslowski's The Decalogue.

I can think of a million films that are generally depressing but have uplifting or hopeful endings or messages, and films that are really intense and fill you with negative emotions, but not really 'depressing' per say. There are a lot of movies that have depressing parts but aren't necessarily depressing as a whole.

Noe's Irreversible is intense and depressing.
Haneke's Funny Games, which I mentioned in a different thread.

Everyone mentioned a lot of really good ones here before me.

"bodies, rest, and motion"

seriously, don't watch this movie if at any point in the foreseeable future you'll be moving with a significant other to a new town. i watched it 4 years ago and i'm STILL messed up from it. :lol: it's like a 90 minute illustration of futility.

only reason i watched it is cuz it came with "the legend of 1900", which could also be considered depressing, especially at the end when

Agreed, I hated the ending to The Mist. I was really delighted with how true to the book it was throughout, and then... THAT.

No one ever seems to agree with me, but I found Punch-Drunk Love really depressing.

I watched Punch-Drunk Love the same weekend as another extremely depressing movie, Love Liza. That one was even worse because the video box billed it as something like "a wacky tragicomedy" but it was NOT. It was tragi only. It was a pretty bad weekend overall.

Most of my favorite movies are pretty dark and depressing, really. Taxi Driver comes to mind. Vertigo, which does the abrupt, painful ending perfectly. 13 Conversations About One Thing, which is excellent, and pretty fucking sad. Although the dominant emotion there is probably melancholy, not full-blown depression....

Surprisingly no one has mentioned 3 Dollars. I guess being Australian it has not really got around the other parts of the world. It must be the most depressing film I have ever seen, yet one of the best. *Goes off to listen to Joy Division and mope*

La vita e bella, Live is Beautiful, by Roberto Benigni. It is a beautiful movie, but I'dnever, never, NEVER watch it again, the ending is way too bittersweet for me. First movie that made me cry.

Another one is Andrei Tarkovsky's Solyaris. Kris Kelvin goes to a space station orbiting a planet to find out what happened with the crew, only to find the memory of his dead wife roaming about for him to deal with. Kind of Event Horizon, only that GOOD (and almost 30 years earlier).

I second Solaris, although I think we've seen different versions of it (I've only seen the 2002 version), as well as Requiem and the Fountain, although the Fountain and Solaris both just seem bittersweet, instead of tragic.

Oh, God. The Hours. What a horribly depressing movie. Everyone is horribly messed up, Ed Harris and Nicole Kidman kill their selves. Nothing is really ever resolved. People are upset the whole time. There is no happy part to the movie. It is all serious and sad, nothing else ever. It's got a sort of oppressively sullen atmosphere to everything. It's a really good film.

Speaking of Oscar winners, Crash was also really depressing, despite ending on a goodish note maybe, and so was Capote. Serious dramas are pretty depressing generally, I think.

Being John Malkovich is so depressing it hurts.

It's been a while since I saw it and it was also the remake, but I thought Solaris was bitter-sweet, but borderlining on happy.

Spoiler:
In the end, he was back with his wife, even if he was either trapped in a strange alien star or dead from the exploding station.

As many others have mentioned, Requiem for a Dream. A movie I watched at about 4am alone in bed after a really depressing week and if there is any other film that made me want to do something with my life that was it. I lay there in bed all morning contemplating everything that was depressing about the world and feeling like I didn't want to be a part of it.

Grave of the Fireflies would have been more depressing for me if it had closed over a longer period of time, it ended just as I was expecting it to go on and utterly crush my soul. I was left more surprised at it ending than being sad at the ending itself.

La Strada, perhaps? That movie was like Life Is Beautiful for me: it left me feeling depressed and uplifted at the same time.

The animated shorts The Second Renaissance Part I and II from The Animatrix. I don't think there were many points in that short that were particularly positive or uplifting at all. I guess that was the point though.

I didn't really take any of this into account you see, because this is encapsulated within a universe in which robots plug humans into a computer program and let them live out their lives as usual, while using them as a power source. It's not realistic. I don't really think it's supposed to be. I think it is very comic-book, but the actual social events taking place held a lot of weight to me.

But all of that social whatnot was triggered because some engineer was stupid enough to think that a robot butler needed sufficient hand-strength to crush a man's skull. This was a product being marketed around families, with childrens, and they didn't think it could use a few more saftey features?

I didn't even find that movie depressing, just upsetting that it was such a bad film.

And my one original contribution to this thread is: He Was a Quiet Man.
For those who have seen (which I wager would be maybe one or two at most) you'll know what I mean. For those who haven't seen it, this guy goes from being a complete loser at the very bottom of the food-chain (bullied at work etc.) to being a high flyer, and then it all comes crashing down... but that attempted synopsis didn't really do the film justice.

Superman flies and shoots lasers from his eyes. He is a comic book character. No one questions the science of this because he is from a comic book. Likewise, most of The Second Renaissance Parts I and II is very comic-bookish and unreal, and is designed to set up a story in which people eat pills to get flushed out of red embryonic pods and the fly around in a large ship fighting off likewise flying machines. I mean, humans have done a lot of stupid things in the vein of history, and the film is like an unrealistic allegory of the world, which it is and that's how it's meant to be. The events that proceed after the trial are terrible and based off events that have happened in history, and it's supposed to remind us of the darker side of humanity and how if not kept in check, could probably lead to our downfall. It's a dystopian future film, and those are often ridiculously unrealistic in terms of technology.

Gummo seriously made me lose my faith in humanity for a few days. Streams of vaguely related vignettes of poverty, hatred, and depravity, through the bleak and washed-out lens of a cold and detached spectator. I don't know that the movie had any great underlying meaning, or any purpose besides evoking repulsion. I've never seen anything so utterly nihilistic.

Match Point was pretty depressing too, but brilliant nonetheless.

Yeah, Gummo was pretty depressing for what it was. I didn't like it (it was a pretty meaningless/nihilistic film); the depressing thing wasn't so much that the movie made you depressed like other films listed here, but that it made you depressed that there are actually people like that.

I thought Match Point was brilliant too. You should check out Crimes and Misdemeanors (also very depressing) if you haven't.

I can't remember if I've said this before, but House of Sand and Fog is one of the more desolate films I've ever seen...it left me in such a state of utter despair.

Also, Control, the film based on the life of Joy Division's Ian Curtis just broke me.

There are a couple parts in the film that give the impression that Lenny is Sammi Jenkins. One scene in particular shows Sammi in the hospital sitting in a chair, someone walks by and for a moment it shows Lenny in the chair instead of Sammi.

I also found Jin Roh, Donnie Darko and SLC Punk depressing.

Other movies I have found depressing that have not been mentioned:
Man on Fire (I read the entire thread just now and I am really surprised that this wasn't mentioned. I always get a little misty at the end.)
Salton Sea (Moments of this movie really got me down, I have a friend who loved it but said he would never watch it again.)
Zone of the Enders: I Dolo (Ignore all of the sci-fi anime shit and there is a really depressing story behind it. This {warning: linked movie is the entire ending} made me realize just how depressing this movie was.)
