Easily Bicycle Thieves
Either Jean de Florette or Penny Serenade.
I'm not sure I can bring myself to watch either movie ever again.
A Night to Remember, yes.
I remember watching it on a Friday and I was depressed all weekend
Schindler's List.. even today i still can't see the movie without crying at some point
Phenomenon.. i know, Scientology vehicle for Travolta but the last third is so heartwrenching
Seconded. It's a small film, but overwhelming. Almost 30 years later, I still think Jane Alexander was robbed of the Oscar.
Of course, she was up against Shirley McClaine for Terms of Endearment...another movie that makes me cry every damn time I see it.
Oh, yeah. Steel Magnolias, too.
Atonement always gets me, too.
I don't know about all around "sad", but I cried over the closing credits of "The World According to Garp". After Garp was assasinated by the Ellen Jamsesian and the movie ended with that little baby (who was Garp as a child) happily floating in the sky (I think the sky), for some reason the tears just started flowing. Weird.
The Hiding Place
It's going to be on USA Network Feb. 23. Commercial free.
I'm with you. I saw it when I was a kid and it devastated me.
Allegro Non Troppo: the sequence with the starving cat wandering through the bombed-out ruins of its once-happy home chokes me up just thinking about it.
It's the excruciating contrast between the cat's memories of happier days, when it was warm and safe and loved, and its miserable, homeless present that just kills me . . . .
Now and Then, Here and There makes GOTF seem cheerful by compairison, and the saddest movie for me is Adieu, Galaxy Express 999
apologies to all, but it made me laugh.
"Ironweed" with Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep. "Blackbird," "Gardens of the Night," "Nonames" with Gillian Jacobs.
Man, I must have anti-sad radar when it comes to seeing movies. I haven't heard of half of these.
