Oh dear "Old Yeller" the other classic is "Where the Red Fern Grows"... no wonder I never wanted a dog ;)
Posted: 4 years, 10 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: 4 years, 9 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: 4 years, 9 months ago at Nov 17 23:36
Thank you for this list. Found something new.
Posted: 4 years, 7 months ago at Jan 22 15:23
you should add "single man" to this list

Posted: 4 years, 7 months ago at Jan 23 17:33
I think "blow" is kind of depressing as well
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Feb 24 17:03
I agree with Emilia, 'single man' is more than depressing...
Posted: 4 years, 5 months 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: 4 years, 4 months ago at Apr 6 23:00
i agree with Rezza Shah, "blow" is really depressing, and i would add "stay" and "dolls"
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 5 6:45
wheres Seven Pounds? :x
Posted: 3 years, 7 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: 3 years, 7 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: 3 years, 7 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: 3 years, 7 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: 3 years, 7 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: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 22 19:35
Your list is enough to make me so blue!:)) Great list, excellent job!
Posted: 3 years, 6 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: 3 years, 6 months ago at Feb 14 6:47
Death Sentence with kevin bacon is the most depressing and you forgot it man come on
Posted: 3 years, 6 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 ago at Aug 10 8:53
Good list!

How about 'The House of Sand and Fog'?
Posted: 3 years 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 ago at Aug 10 14:36
GOOD LIST:) another would be "the butcher boy" and "beloved"
Posted: 3 years 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 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

You should watch Less Than Zero. One of the most depressing films I've ever seen.
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Dec 14 16:14
Check out the movie"Kids" from the early 90's.

100% agree A Single Man should be here! Great list!
Posted: 2 years 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: 1 year, 9 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: 1 year, 9 months ago at Nov 30 11:38
nice list!i saw recently How I Live Now it was very depressing...and Sleepers!
