Good list,bravo!
Posted: 4 years, 4 months ago at Apr 17 14:50
Nice list!
Posted: 4 years, 4 months ago at Apr 18 9:08
Suggestions:

Haneke's The Seventh Continent. It's about a family who comitts a suicide. Director's interview about this film is also interesting.

Moodysson's Lilja 4-ever about a girl who's mother goes to USA and leaves her daugther to live on her own. Lilja gets entangled in prostitution and eventually kills herself. The setting is located in "somewhere in post communist eastern europe". The atmosphere is really depressing. Some people think it's overloaded with bad luck and irrational Lilja's actions and therefore the film looks too fictional but as someone from that region I think it's a very realistic film.

P.S. Both movies are based on real stories.

P.P.S. this comment turned out into a little review but whatever.

@noctem: Thak you for your comment (small review in fact). Yes, I fully agree that "Lilja 4-ever" is a keeper but somehow I forgot to meniton it.

I had no chance to see "The Seventh Continent" yet, so it could not be on my list which is entirely based on my own impressions and memories.

There are also some movies which deserve honourable mention but I decided to drop them from the list for various reasons: "Bittersweet Life" (rough and sad, but packed with too much action), "Gone Baby Gone", "Lost In Translation", "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", "Get Low", "Happiness"...

Just sign up to comment that I like your list and i've been followed it c;
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 12 6:06
you're on the downers eh?

I agree with Noctem, The 7th Continent epitomizes this list, right up your alley smalltux. I believe that film had the hardest hitting and longest lasting affect on me than any other.

Seen any Cassevetes works? I think both Husbands and Woman Under the Influence attack decency though from opposite angles. Mikey and Nicky too.

Have you seen Enter the Void? G. Noe

Love is the Devil - Francis Bacon's emotional sadism. Dismal and wicked.

Kinski/Herzog - Cobra Verde and Aguirre.

About time to get another list going eh?

Bad Lieutenant (Keitel)

some cinematic self mutilation for you. message me if you feel like discussing!

It's a little telling that I'm familiar with so many of these. I wasn't a fan of Revolutionary Road. The ending was really abrupt and heavy-handed.The concept - suburbia sucks the very life-force from your body - was dead on, however.
