Oh dear "Old Yeller" the other classic is "Where the Red Fern Grows"... no wonder I never wanted a dog ;)
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Nov 5 8:49
With animals? Most Disney's movies (Dumbo, Bambi...) could do suffer a lot in childhood xD Interesting list.
Posted: 5 years, 6 months ago at Nov 6 2:56
I'd have to disagree with American Beauty. Yeah he dies at the end of the movie, but he dies happy. Everyone ends on such a happy note.
Posted: 5 years, 5 months ago at Nov 17 23:36
Thank you for this list. Found something new.
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Jan 22 15:23
you should add "single man" to this list

What about Boy A?

I think "blow" is kind of depressing as well
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at Feb 24 17:03
I agree with Emilia, 'single man' is more than depressing...
Posted: 5 years, 1 month ago at Mar 10 10:39
A agree that "a single man" and "Boy A" are definitive depressing as well. Great list by the way :)
Posted: 5 years ago at Apr 6 23:00
i agree with Rezza Shah, "blow" is really depressing, and i would add "stay" and "dolls"
Posted: 4 years, 4 months ago at Jan 5 6:45
wheres Seven Pounds? :x
Posted: 4 years, 4 months ago at Jan 5 16:14
I can totally understand why Schindler's List is on this ... er, list, but I find the movie kind of hopeful, too. Oskar Schindler was a real man, not a Hollywood creation. Fundamentally good people do exist in this world.

Neither here nor there, though. Great list!
Posted: 4 years, 4 months ago at Jan 6 5:10
Every Disney movie could be added..like Lion King and Bambi, goodness I kind of hate those movies because they are so sad. I know this is silly but I think Marley and Me is very depressing too
Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at Jan 15 3:54
I don't think American Beauty, Magnolia or Schindler's List is depressing in the least. All three are pretty life affirming, in fact.
Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at Jan 15 4:35
I've never cried more watching films than when I saw The Decalogue; it's one of Roger Ebert's 10 favorite films.
Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at Jan 15 5:10
"Schindler's List" is amazingly depressing. "Old Yeller"? Not so much depressing as incredibly and horrifyingly sad.
Posted: 4 years, 3 months ago at Jan 22 19:35
Your list is enough to make me so blue!:)) Great list, excellent job!
Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at Feb 14 3:08
I agree that Old Yeller is more sad than depressing.

Clint Eastwood seems to have found his niche as a director of depressing movies like, Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, and Gran Torino. Good films, but very depressing.

I also didn't think of To Kill A Mockingbird as a depressing movie, even though a great injustice and a tragic end was suffered by Atticus' client.
Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at Feb 14 6:47
Death Sentence with kevin bacon is the most depressing and you forgot it man come on
Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at Feb 14 15:49
great list..i named my dog atticus, so that tells you what i think of that movie..you should see requiem for a heavyweight. great movie, and very depressing. written by rod serling, enough said..
Posted: 3 years, 8 months ago at Aug 10 8:53
Good list!

How about 'The House of Sand and Fog'?
Posted: 3 years, 8 months ago at Aug 10 12:49
Precious and Distant Voices Still Lives are two films that left me feeling far less hopeful about life and humanity than I was before I watched them.
Posted: 3 years, 8 months ago at Aug 10 14:36
GOOD LIST:) another would be "the butcher boy" and "beloved"
Posted: 3 years, 8 months ago at Aug 11 5:27
I wonder what would make you give The Green Mile two and a half stars? I agree with basically everything else's rating.
Posted: 3 years, 8 months ago at Aug 11 8:28
my buddy's step-aunt earned $14861 the previous month. she is making money on the internet and bought a $355300 house. All she did was get fortunate and put to use the instructions made clear on this site NuttyRich.com
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Dec 14 16:10
You should watch Less Than Zero. One of the most depressing films I've ever seen.
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Dec 14 16:14
Check out the movie"Kids" from the early 90's.

Castaway!

Omg Kes, so thats were they got the name for the bird on Bo Selecta ;o
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jan 16 4:09
100% agree A Single Man should be here! Great list!
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 17 10:57
Good list. I suggest you "All or Nothing a film by Mike Leigh; a must if you still haven'nt. Cheers
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Nov 30 11:32
I agree with Requiem for a Dream, but the most depressing are "Platoon", "Full Metal Jacket" and "Threads"
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Nov 30 11:38
nice list!i saw recently How I Live Now it was very depressing...and Sleepers!
Posted: 2 years ago at Apr 29 22:11
do you know the word "description"?

The Plague Dogs more than deserves a place here.
Posted: 4 months, 1 week ago at Dec 28 17:51
you`d add "A single man"
