Re: Saddest movie?

Ironweed is near the top of my list, already mentioned upthread.

One of the things that makes it so great is that it is a personal tragedy that doesn't essentially require any grand events for its backdrop. It could happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime. Nicholson and Streep are, as reputed, outstanding. But it's a real downer.
