I have never felt more depressed and shocked and sad after a film as I did with Mulholland Dr. I am making a copy for my friend right now and just going through the scenes is utterly gut-wrenching, it's one of those movies that changes after you have seen it once. I've never had this happen in a movie before, where I actually feel terrible and sad for a character. 
 
Naomi Watt's performance in this film is incredible. She really made me get into her character. Definitely her best work. 
 
I also cried at the end of Brokeback Mountain... my god that was sad.  
 
Strangely, they both involve homosexual relationships :S

Everyone knows Hotaru no haka (Grave of the Fireflies) is the saddest movie ever made.
 



It is devastatingly sad.

Probably Grave of the Fireflies, which coincidentally is on TV right now.

I agree with this. Also felt the same way watching "Casualties of War"

tbh i think grave of the fireflies is one of the saddest films ever , i do photography and video production with media as well, so i have seen MANY films. i think is the film that brought me to tears with such intensity 

#7 Posted by JoelTGM (5596 posts) -

I've never seen a sad movie I guess, depressing at the most but not sad.  I'll try and watch Hotaru no haka because it must have some good characters to make a person sad.  So hard to find those kinds of movies though!

I like watching sad movies. Never seen Grave of the Fireflies, and i never will.  
 
I just watched a movie called Everybody's Fine and it was pretty sad but really good. It's got DiNero, Barrymore, Beckinsale and some other really good actors in it.

Requiem for a Dream still makes me feel dead inside.

House of Sand and Fog.

This Grave of the Fireflies sounds pretty harsh...

Green Mile.  
I don't think I've ever cried over any media but the ending of Green Mile atleast made be feel real sorrow for the death of a good guy.

Any uwe Boll movie... they are all soo sad... in fact, some of them almost drove me to suicide... oh god... i cant even think about them. Just... watch them if you want to cry... weep for humanity my friends...

Oasis probably. This Korean film that made me feel so uncomfortable, then happy, then super uncomfortable again going through it. Kinda amazing though.

5 Centimetres Per Second
The Wrestler
The Sea Inside
Riding Alone For Thousands of Miles

I find movies that are deliberately sad just plain boring and they always fail to evoke feeling.
The old Spartacus movie, I cried at the end. Maybe it's because I was young when I watched it tho.

Yeah but that movie wasn't sad it was just shocking, and had a great musical score.

Titanic and The Wrestler are two that immediately come to mind. Moon had its moments as well.

Bridge to Terabithia put me in a deep depression for over a month, mostly because it provided the opposite outcome to a scenario I've experienced in my own life with regard to the woman I'm now engaged to.  Very much not something I ever wanted to think about again.  That being said, I love the movie.

It was depressing to me.  It's not necessarily a "cry myself to sleep" kind of sad.  It's the kind of sad that makes you lose hope in humanity.

I've watched this movie like 3 tiems.

He Was A Quiet Man made my stomach twist a little =(. Artificial Intellgience had its moments too.

American Beauty was the first, and only, movie to bring me to the edge of tears

Cries and Whispers
Winter Light
The Silence
Spoorloos
Salo, or 120 Days of Sodom
The Elephant Man
Raise the Red Lantern
Come and See
all amazing films.

MGS4. That was pretty sad at times.

#29 Posted by GilbertMordinAndSullivan (442 posts) -
Definitely Mullholand Drive. I've seen it at least 5 times it always haunts me for a few days afterwards. The most I've ever been moved to tears, though, was by United 93. The dread of watching all those people climb aboard a plane I knew was going to kill them was almost too much to bear. 
 
And, it's not a movie, The Wire usually has a moment in every episode so overwhelmingly sad I start to tear up. 
#30 Posted by L33tfella_H (901 posts) -

Grave of the Fireflies had me choke up at the end, it's just a massive downer.
 
Titanic in itself doesn't necessarily do anything for me, but that celine dion song and thinking about the film definently wets my eyes every now and again (i'm a massive pussy, as you clearly read).
 
Now, this didn't have me crying at the end, but it might aswell have, it had me depressed for a good few hours after watching the film -

I thought it was the only one...I was watching it with a friend and we were making dicks jokes at the end to hide our grief 
#32 Posted by Meowshi (2911 posts) -

I don't know.  I'm so girly when it comes to movies.  I tear up all the time.   
 
It's weird though, I never cry during sad scenes, just happy ones.

American History X was a real downer, but Mystic River wins this award.

Pans labyrinth was pretty sad

The pursuit of happiness. Will Smith gives a sterling performance.

Dancer In The Dark anyone?
 
Tbh the things that are the most moving are always the bittersweet endings, like The Life Aquatic, Chungking Express, or Eternal Sunshine or something.

Grave of the Fireflies.

#38 Posted by Kr3lian (310 posts) -

No movie is more sad than Grave of the Fireflies.  Up has a really nice part that brought me to tears, but that was as much from how the story was told (through beautiful montage) as the actual story.

Old Yeller gets me every time. Forest Gump and Cast Away are up there for me.

teenage mutant ninja turtles 1. when splinter got kidnapped by shredder, the turtles were praying over a campfire. splinter appeared to them in a vision, and said, "i love you my sons. doo the right thing." i bawled. i was like 5, but still.

I'd don't know if it's the saddest movie I've ever seen, but it is among the most touching.  I strongly urge anyone looking for a rich unsentimental look at friendship to see 1998's The Mighty starring Elden Henson and Keiran Culkin in the lead roles.  TRAILER
 
@Kombat:  I loved The Bridge to Tarabithia, too.  Because of the trailers I was expecting something much different, and was pleasantly surprised.
 
Other good ones are 
  1. What Dreams May Come - Robin Williams lost his wife then dies himself.
  2. Pay it Forward.  This one is rather heavy handed, but still touching I think.
  3. Life is Beautiful - Family love amid the desperation of a Nazi concentration camp
  4. Philadelphia - AIDS victim Hanks deals with the disease and isolation by his peers
  5. The Best Years of Our Lives - Coming home from the 2nd World War was not all parades.
  6. Glory - the tragic futility of war questions all noble deeds. 
  7. I Am Legend - dude..."Sam".
  8. Penny Serenade - An older sloppy sentimental tearjerker starring Cary Grant & Irene Dunn
  9. Watership Down - I mention this animated film because it is too often overlooked

Totally agree with everyone who said Grave of the Fireflies. The first time I watched it was with a bunch of my friends, and we were all crying at the end.

Blood Diamond, I had a tear in my eye in some parts. 
 
Also Top Gun. So sad when they are prancing around the beach playing volleyball whilst they are all shirtless and sweaty.

Titanic.
 
When DiCaprio drowns (muhahahaha) and his girlfriend realises she's never gonna make love to him ever again. :( muhahahaha

#48 Posted by DJL (202 posts) -

Damn, now I want to see this grave of the fireflies... 
 
BUt I guess for me, the saddest are Schindler's List, Hotel Rwanda, and Up. Movies that get me pretty watery-eyed.

Admit it, a dog dying is much sadder than a human dying.
