Re: Saddest movie?

My two votes would be The Virgin Spring: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Virgin_Spring
and Bless the Beasts and Children: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bless_t...ren_%28film%29

Also disturbing was what I consider to be Boris Karloff's best movie--Targets
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Targets

In the film's finale at a drive-in theater, Orlok — the old-fashioned, traditional screen monster who always obeyed the rules — confronts the new, realistic, nihilistic late-1960s "monster" in the shape of a clean-cut, unassuming multiple murderer.

Too real.

Re: Saddest movie?

A Soldier's Girl - A Showtime TV movie, but a true story. It is as equally shocking as it is sad. I was crying for a long while after it, and it's certainly not a film I think I could watch again. Once is definitely enough. It's also sadder to me because it's quite relevant to my life.

I actually cried at the end of the original Godzilla when they sucked the oxygen out of Tokyo bay and killed him.

The whole Jenny thing in "Forrest Gump" was incredibly sad.

Another for Grave of the Fireflies.

It hits me a bit hard since my Dad flew fighter-bomber raids on Japan in 1945.

Shadowlands with Anthony Hopkins as C.S. Lewis. The man finally finds love only to have it ripped from him by cancer, and the personal conflict he endures as he comes to terms with the pain of loss. It's gut-wrenching.

The Futurama episode "Jurassic Bark". I dare anyone not to get choked up at the end of that.
