E.T. : Cried so hard (the first time) and could not calm down; my mother finally yelled "he's not really dead!!!" Despite that, at nearly 40 years old, I still get teary-eyed.

Defendor (Yeah, the Woody Harrelson comic movie)

Phantom of the Opera (Gerard Butler version)

Everybody's Fine (Made me miss my Dad)

Almost forgot, Repo the Genetic Opera. The ending killed me.

DEFENDOR was a movie I loved, told everyone I knew about, and insisted was not a comedy (as it was advertised). Excellent movie. I shed tears, too.

Maryanne Raphael (MaryanneRaphael) | 250 comments A movie I loved that made me cry was
Pete Kelly's Blues. I saw it years ago and I can still remember Peggy Lee singing the Rainbow song as she stands in the Mental Hospital and Doris Day singing Love Me Or Leave Me.

Maryanne Raphael (MaryanneRaphael) | 250 comments A recent movie that brought tears to my eyes was the Descendents. It also made me homesick for Hawaii where I lived ten years and raised my son.

Julie (brontesister) | 733 comments The film that immediately comes to mind is THE STONING OF SORAYA M., which contains one of the most brutal scenes of a woman being stoned to death in Iran. I believe it was based on a true story. Just knowing that this took place and that women are still being stoned to death really affected me.

Another film is GORILLAS IN THE MIST, the poaching scenes and Dian Fossey's murder.

THE SECRET LIFE OF WORDS, with Sarah Polley. She plays a haunted Bosnian war survivor, and Tim Robbins plays a damaged man who is under her nursing care on an oil rig in the middle of nowhere. When she finally reveals her story to him.

PARIS, TEXAS. The film aches with a sense of alienation and loneliness that permeates practically every pore.

NEVER LET ME GO. Some scenes were so beautifully sad, like the one with Andrew Garfield realizing how short his life will be and his anguish at the unfairness of it all.

SHAME, when Brandon reaches the end of his rope and breaks down--all of his carefully concealed addictions finally get the better of him.

ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST--the ending.

INTO THE WILD--pretty much the ending too.


message 413: by James (new)

James (m0gb0y74) | 58 comments Been ages since I cried at a movie, but I remember crying when the boy flew away at the end of 'The Boy who could fly' when I watched it as a teen. Too many teen hormones I guess ;-)

Although it's a pale imitation of the original I cried at the end of 'City of Angels'.


message 414: by Maryanne (new)

Maryanne Raphael (MaryanneRaphael) | 250 comments I cried at The Kiss of the Spider Woman and A Beautiful Mind.


message 415: by Ea (new)

Ea Many of the films already listed have provoked a strong emotional reaction in one way or another, but never to the point of tears. Two of the very few exceptions I can think of have been Grave of the Fireflies and probably Philadelphia.

GotF had me hung over for several days, in fact. Later viewings were only marginally easier, but that first time was memorable - I remember sitting motionless in a half-stunned silence some thirty minutes after the credits had finished rolling.
It's only until the morning afterwards when I realised that I had spent the night sobbing (my pillowcase was soaked), and since I have no memory of actually crying then I must've done it in my sleep.

Grave of the Fireflies had me feeling depressed for quite some time after watching it. Hard but important viewing.

Phillip | 8353 comments i have to see that film ... still having a hard time finding it.


message 418: by Phillip (new)

Phillip | 8353 comments well, shut my mouth - i went to netflix and found it - but in the non-streaming version .. fair enough.

Kellyflower | 20 comments Phillip wrote: "well, shut my mouth - i went to netflix and found it - but in the non-streaming version .. fair enough."

That's how I first viewed it.(DvD version) But then I ended up buying it so I could share the sadness/depressed feelings with family & Friends.


I agree with Ea & James.. it's one of those movies that clings to you long after your done watching it. I had this same feel after I finished reading McCarthy's book The Road
Thinking about either one of those brings out the sadness...


message 420: by Julie (new)

Julie (brontesister) | 733 comments GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES, can't believe I forgot that one--one of the most bittersweet films I've ever seen--beautiful and haunting.

My cousin dated the lead character of "The Boy Who Could Fly" (Jay Underwood) while he was filming the movie. I remember her wanting to leave the shopping mall and get home because he had promised to call. Needless to say, I was very excited to see the movie. I am not sure if today I would feel the same, but I did cry at the end.

The original "Wings of Desire" was fabulous!!! I am guilty of enjoying "City of Angels", as well. Both left me in tears.


message 427: by [deleted user] (last edited Aug 05, 2012 03:44AM) (new)

At last I picked up the courage to see this documentary:
EARTHLINGS (2005)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earthlin...
[it is also available on youtube]

and obiously I cried, I felt deeply sorry and angry as well; but it's worth it.


message 428: by Phillip (new)

Phillip | 8353 comments yow ... looks devastating. i'll check it out.


message 429: by [deleted user] (new)

er... unfortunately it is really devastating, especially being true.


message 430: by Phillip (new)

Phillip | 8353 comments you were just talking about INTO THE ABYSS on another thread ... that's one that made me cry ... pretty much all throughout.


message 431: by [deleted user] (new)

you are not the only one: I had to stop the dvd when the father in prison was talking;
and also reading your words about the holocaust of the native Americans on the other thread made me cry. Denial and oblivon are really two of the few resources that are evenly distribued around the world - and in these parts we are becoming masters of them both: we have learned to forget from one day to the next.

Phillip | 8353 comments yep


message 433: by Julie (last edited Aug 09, 2012 02:16AM) (new)

Julie (brontesister) | 733 comments VÉNUS NOIRE made me cry--so many cruel scenes with the main character being exhibited like an animal in a cage for the general public to ooh and ahh and poke at. And the scenes where tears fall down her face at the indignities forced upon her.

DES VENTS CONTRAIRES (HEADWINDS)--there's a scene near the end that's heartbreaking, with a father having to give his kids bad news and their reaction. The song that plays over the ending credits made me cry with its melancholy sound and lyrics; it's called "Last Feeling." (I'll try to post something on this film some time soon).

the more i hear about this, the more it sounds like ELEPHANT MAN .. only, you know, different.


message 435: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany McFly (tiffmcfly) So many films had made me cry! But the ones that stand out are:
Return to Paradise
I Am Sam
Crash
Marley & Me

Yes, similar to THE ELEPHANT MAN in that both characters are made to be sideshow freaks. John Merrick found a protector though, whereas Saartjes Baartman wasn't that lucky.

Both films expose society's cruelness towards those who are different, and both films tear at one's heart.


message 437: by Robert (new)

Robert Beveridge (xterminal) I am not afraid to admit I pretty much bawled like a baby during the last forty-five minutes of Departures. Actually, more than the baby. He just watched.


message 438: by Ampa (new)

Ampa (maniacmidget) | 8 comments I recently watched 50/50 with my boyfriend. I had been anticipating this movie ever since I saw a brief trailer last year. I knew it was going to be a sad movie but it also had the potential to be incredibly funny.

It definitely did not disappoint. Seth Rogan and Joseph Gordon Levitt have great chemistry and make the emotions that spill through the movie seem so vivid and real.

The movie is based on the writer of the movie's real life experience with cancer so it's not surprising how well everything fits together. From the lowest lows in the main character's life to the humorous misfortunes that come across his way, you'll be hooked.

I'd watch it again and again.


message 439: by Ivan (new)

Ivan "50/50" had me in tears a couple times. Why did they try to sell it as a comedy? I just saw "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" and that got to me too.


message 440: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany McFly (tiffmcfly) "50/50" did not make me cry much, I got teary-eyed at some bits, but not a full on cry.
But I loved it! It was the perfect balance of drama and comedy.
I just loved Seth Rogan as the comic relief for the film and his character was perfect in that sense. While Joseph Gordon-Levitt was sad and depressed (which is completely understandable), Rogan's character was there to pick him up and make him laugh even though most times it was with vulgarity and didn't really make Levitt's situation better :D

message 443: by Rebecca (last edited Aug 21, 2014 11:22AM) (new)

Rebecca Gransden (anemogram) | 27 comments Recently watched an Austrian-German film called The Wall. About a woman facing solitude and a battle to survive, she writes down her experience as a strategy to carry on. With elements of fable and the addition of animals this was not full on cry but single dignified tear material. I should add that this film includes real footage of a deer being killed which any overly sensitive vegetarians like me may find distressing.
Also, The Killing Fields gets me every time. There is one particular scene with a certain piece of music which I know is coming and is completely emotionally manipulative but yeah is a certain sniff inducer. I think it's the performance of Hiang S. Ngor. I read his story Survival in the Killing Fields after seeing the film and in a way wish that had been the film they had made.

Re: Haing S. Ngor--what makes me want to cry is the fact that after everything he went through, he was murdered in L.A. in 1996.

His story seemed to have no let up did it? One of those for which the natural chaos of things led to a life defined by tragedy. Hard to find the positive but at least he got his experiences out there unlike many upon many.
