12 The Road
13 Forrest Gump
14 Seven
15 Of Mice and Men

I've only read the book, but yes. The depiction of Carlsson and how he's never had anyone he can call a friend, and how he finishes the (already depressing) ending with the one truly sad quote:
"What's eating them two? "
He's never had anyone he can call friends, family, and he doesn't bat an eyelid about anything that just happened.
It's really upsetting when you think about it. - Rocko

The fact that Lennie dies for something that wasn't his fault is really depressing, but the last shot of George and lennie walking into the distance in slo mo is just too much. - adfairhurst
