Most Depressing Movies


The Top Ten

1 Requiem for a Dream

Unquestionably the most depressing movie I have ever seen. I can't even listen to the soundtrack without reliving the horror

The eyes of jared are amazing I want the same colour for my eyes. JARED IS FANTASTIC!

Just... Why would someone make a movie so sad?

It is very Depressing

2 Grave of the Fireflies

So depressing that you will want to slit your wrists, hang yourself, take an overdose of pills, or choose any other method of suicide after watching this.

3 Million Dollar Baby

Her story is really depressing Maggie Fitzgerald, a young brave boxer's drama - MatrixGuy

4 Melancholia
5 Irreversible

Boy is there anything more irreversible than what's already happened? "Irreversible" is a tale of time. The movie starts when every thing is ruined and nothing's gonna be the same again and by the time it's come to an ending every thing become so calm and peaceful. It's sounds nice but the fact is the movie is telling the story backwards. It's really great though. One of my personal top 10 best movie.

6 P.S. I Love You

This film is not depressing at all. Sure, the love of her life dies, but through a series of beautiful letters he wrote before his death, he helped his girlfriend get through her grief and live her life at the same time. It's a wonderful story. - Britgirl

7 Antichrist
8 The Road
9 Dancer in the Dark

Bjork puts on an amazing performance and this movie will ' haunt you

10 No Country for Old Men

The Contenders

11 Schindler's List
12 Into the Wild

This movie while amazing, still REALLY makes me want to jump off a roof or something. It also makes me want to go on a backpacking trip.

13 Persepolis
14 The Passion of the Christ

Not really depressing, just rather brutal.

15 Au Hasard Balthazar
16 The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

This is a pretty lame movie but the ending is too damn depressing. 3/10 - AlphaQ

The movie wasn't very good, but the ending was excellent - kempokid

Best! - murphy
