5 Movies That Will Depress You For Sure
There are movies that will make you laugh, movies that will make you think, and there are movies that will tap into your darkest fears… But this list isn’t about those movies.
Nope, this is a list of five movies that will make you cry. Not just cry – but sob. And then leave you wrecked for at least a few hours after you’ve watched them.
So if you’re in the mood to be thoroughly depressed, take a peek at one of these films.
[Warning: There might be spoilers for the movies mentioned.]
While the story of CC and Hillary is one of the best stories of two friends ever written; if you have a heart, you’ll sob pretty much through the entire thing.
Watching the lives of these two very different women from 11 years old to adulthood and seeing the trials and tribulations that they go through is heart wrenching. Beaches has parts that will make you laugh, but also parts that will make you sob. Especially if you’re fortunate enough to have a best friend the like CC and Hillary. While I love this movie it is totally not one that I can watch often. In fact, I don’t think I’ve seen it in literally six or seven years.
Don’t worry guys – this list won’t be all chick flicks, in fact Beaches is the only one that I mention.
Okay for real? Requiem For A Dream left me wrecked for DAYS after I saw it. I don’t know which story line was worse – Jared Leto’s, Ellen Burstyn’s or Jennifer Connelly’s… but in the end it doesn’t really matter, does it?
The movie will leave you with a hollow feeling inside and one that won’t be filled until you can get the disturbing imagery out of your head – which won’t happen for a while. While Requiem For A Dream was a great movie it is one, like Beaches, that needs to have repeat viewings only after several years have passed.
Again, a great movie, but I had to take a break in the middle. In fact I think the exact words while watching District 9 were: “I can’t watch this anymore.” Knowing the subject matter of District 9 is loosely based on actual events in South Africa just makes it so much worse.
It’s a movie that won’t just depress you at the end, but will depress you throughout – and make you feel HORRIBLE to be a human.
And the ending scene when Wikus Van De Merwe is making his fiancee her metal flowers? Forget it. OH! And if the baby alien doesn’t tug at your heart strings, this list will do nothing for you.
I was hesitant to put this in this list, but when I decided to pick this topic, The Passion of the Christ was the first movie that popped into my head. Religious views aside, if you’ve seen this movie and view it as fiction, the premise is one that won’t let you rest for days.
I saw this movie in the theater (actually I was tricked into seeing it under the pretense that I was going to see a Johnny Depp movie, but I digress), and knowing the story already knew that it was going to be a hard one for me to watch.
But I wasn’t prepared for the way that the movie was shot and the absolutely incredible performance by Jim Caviezel. I was ruined, no exaggerating, for days after this one.
I haven’t seen this movie in YEARS, but what ISN’T sad about it?! The entire movie just builds up to the horrible ending that is… well, one of the worst endings to any movie EVER.
I don’t care what people say that there’s a happy message in this story. I couldn’t find it through my tears.
So that’s that! Movies to watch when you don’t want to feel happy; and instead just full out depressed.
I’m sure that there are other movies that could be added to this list, so be sure to tell me what your depressing movies are!!
