"The Green Mile" is very sad, its about the lives of guards on death row leading up to the execution of a wrongly accused man who has the power of faith healing (IMDB)

As soon as I read the title I figured I'd say 'The Green Mile' as well.

John Tucker Must Die.

He didn't die, and just the overall tone the movie is grotesque. High school movies FTL.

Xiu Xiu the Sent Down Girl is always the far and away "winner" in this category. It will leave you feeling angry, helpless and hollow.

That's my all time favorite movie. It's really great. :) It is sad, though.

I've seen quite a few movies, but I've never seen one that depressed the hell out of me like this:

I mean, seriously...what a total downer. :(

Alpha Dog, i was shocked that it was a great movie since it had Justin Timberlake in it, but a very sad movie.

Little Children was pretty sad, though I can't remember why.

The movie that depressed me most was Lucky Number Slevin. It was so horrible that I regreted watching it for all the following week.

I can't believe that no one's mentioned Grave of The Fireflies.

[spoiler] On the part when he burns her body, I don't think I'll ever be able to stop crying...ever. [/spoiler]

green mile was sad but all you who voted for it need to go see requiem for a dream.  Green mile sorta has a positive uplifting side to it (he gives that jerk brain cancer or whatever and heals people) unlike requiem.

"My Favourite Things" is probably my favorite jazz standard and one of my favorite songs. The Dave Brubeck take on that song is amazing! I do find the actual movie boring though :P

Most depressing movie I've ever seen? Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal. Not technically a movie but it certainly flows like one.

Harlan County, because it's real and not many people know about it's significance on the economy and labor unions.

A Better Tomorrow :cry:Fidel1923

I shed a tear at the end of that movie, partly because of how sad it was at the end and partly because of how epicly awesome the shootout at the end was. It's funny how I never shed a tear in a movie like "The Notebook" but high adrenaline action movies with much ass kicking sometimes get to me. This one as well as "The Killer". Christ, The Killer was awesome "Mickey Mouse!!!!!".

That movie is awesome. I don't watch sad movies a whole lot, but A Clockwork Orange is kind of depressing.
