  • What is the most depressing film you have ever seen?

    No seriously don't offer suggestions of films merely awful, as that makes them awful, not necessarily depressing.

    I am suggesting Trinity and Beyond The Atomic Bomb Movie as the most depressing thing I have ever watched.

    I KNOW that too many people really do NOT know how many nuclear detonations have been set off by our race.

    It wasn't just a couple of bombs on Japan.

    Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
    I didn't for a long time either.

    Falling Down with Michael Douglas and Robert Duvall.I don't know if depressing is the right word,but I certainly didn't feel too good about myself,or anything else after watching that movie the first time.

      I have to agree about Falling Down. Very dark. You're right, I wouldn't say depressing, just leaves a dark cloud of unease.

            House of Mirth.

            The slow decline of a high society lady through to poverty and suicide, and to pay off a debt she never asked for, nor initially realised she owed. Played brilliantly by Gillian Anderson (she of X-Files).

                8mm with Nicholas Cage. He plays the part well and it is a well acted/made film but crickey, it's dark, depressing and the subject mater is horrific.

                  Good call. I have the original, but yeah, watching the end of the film and the streets are now all empty, and there will NEVER be anyone on them anywhere any more.

                  It's a grim finality.

                        The movie was named The Mist. The ending was indeed depressing.

                          I thought the main character was depressing but the movie was pretty good.

                              It's a beautiful day where I am so thinking about depressing movies isn't what I want to be doing but since you asked I can think of a few I don't really want to watch again because they were so sad:

                              Leaving Las Vegas with Nicholas Cage and Elizabeth Shue. I found Shue's character even more sad and pathetic than Cage's drinking himself to death.

                              Memento, with Guy Pearce. Bleak and disturbing.

                              Glengarry Glen Ross, from David Mamet's play. The Jack Lemmon character particularly.

                              And an oldie but still in my mind as depressing and sad, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
