'Looking For Mr Goodbar'

This movie just gets to me...especially the ending.

I'll probably go to hell for this, but Requiem for a Dream struck me as funny. I couldn't help but laugh in the final montage where they were all just totally screwed up. It was just so over the top.

I think the fact they were all solid losers made me lose any compassion for the characters. All of their woes were of their own creation. Confused


The old adage of comedy and tragedy.

They truly are tied at the hip. Laughing

I'm surprised Irreversible hasn't been named yet. That's the last one that really made me a little grey for a couple days. Confused

My life is depressing enough. Honestly,I've never been really depressed by any film. Sad,yes,but not depressed.

REQUIEM FOR A DREAM sure is a downer. One of my faves of all time, but it sure ain't no feel-good flick. :O

I agree with this. Even though it isn't a film, The Laramie Project is one that brings me down even though it's so good.

One not listed yet: "Once Were Warriors". Much great depression to be found in foreign movies. Russia's "Come and See". Take your pick of Igmar Bergman. I just rewatched "Virgin Spring" from the new Criterion DVD and that fits the bill. Polanski's made some big downers, among them "Repulsion".
