1) The Elephant Man
The story of John Merrick. David Lynch did this after "Eraserhead". Normally his stuff is pretty weird, but this movie is designed to resemble those movies from the silver age in cinema and is fairly above board. Anne Bancroft also stars in "The Pumpkin Eater", which I haven't seen yet but am I trying to. It's got to be sad.

2)One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

3)Old yeller every one should cry at this movie at least once

4) Schindler's List

5) My Girl only becuase i lost my best friend when i was young to a Car accident

Last movie that i remember crying while watching was Schindler's List when I saw it in the theaters. Easily the most depressing movie I have seen.

Some of the other depressing flicks:

Autumn Sonata
The Elephant Man (good call)
The Pianist
Ikiru

Jenson had kind of a similar thread a few weeks ago.

Ikiru


I bought the Criterion of this from BN's 3 for 2 deal along with La Strada and The Leopard. Ikiru is definitely one of the hmm, I'd say easily top 10 best movies I've ever seen.

Yep id put Ikiru in my to 10 as well. Very sad, but at the same time optimistic about the improvement in certain traits in people. Im a big Kurosawa fan and I think this might be his best.

I finally saw Le Samourai a few nights ago. My expectations were pretty high for it and it was still damn good. Melville is quickly movie up my short list of favorite directors.

It choked me up twice. Once, when he is speaking at the Washington Monument and see's Jenny. Not sure why that scene, but it always does. Then, of course, at the end when Jenny dies, and he's talking to her...

Schindler's List:
-Oscar is stripping off his medal and thinking, "That's one more I could have saved." Perhaps the most touching moment in cinema history.

Forest Gump:
-Forest meets his son for the first time and asks, "is he smart or is he like..." Tom Hanks' steller innocence culminates in this addmittance to being slow. It's incredible and gets right to me.

Godfather III:
-Micheal Corleone gives confession, and finally lets go of the guilt he feels for having his brother killed. Parts I and II are better movies, but this is probably the most moving moment in the whole trilogy.

Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring:
-Sam dives into the river and almost drowns to keep his promise to Frodo. The moment captures a true and pure moment of friendship and it's hard not to get sucked into it.

(television) Quantum Leap: episode "MIA":
-Al convinces a skeptical Sam that his job is to ensure that a woman (Beth) does not get remarried, because her husband is actually alive in captivity in Vietnam. Sam realizes that Beth is actually Al's first wife and that Al is trying to change his own past. After Sam completes his actual mission (to save the life of an undercover cop) Sam doesn't leap. Al is given a chance to say goodbye to Beth, but he is just a hologram and Beth can't see or hear him. He tells a joke, and she chuckles. You can see how badly Al is hurting as they both dance to Ray Charles' "Georgia on my Mind."

-(note) In the last episode of Quantum Leap, "Mirror Image," Sam leaps back to that night that Beth and Al shared their dance. He just tells Beth flat out, "You don't know me, but I know your husband Al, and he's alive, and he's trying to get back to you. All you have to do is wait."

Oh, hell, lots of 'em.

* Bang the Drum Slowly
* It's a Wonderful Life (tears of happiness at the end)
* My Dog Skip
* The Way We Were (the very end), total guilty pleasure that threatens revocation of my manhood
* Field of Dreams, the end where father and son play catch

So many more I could mention ... I'm a softie.

EDIT: I see SCTrojan has the same reaction to FoD. :thumb:

Here's mine, in no particular order:

1. Schindler's List- at the end where he realizes that his remaining material possessions could've bought more life and breaks down as a result... yikes. Here comes the waterworks.

2. The Color Purple- also at the end where Celie's sister and children drive up after having not seen her for 30 years. I realize this one might make me a girl.

3. The Passion of the Christ- when Mary is running up to Jesus and flashing back to when he fell as a child- this one gets to me worse than any of them

4. Field of Dreams- playing catch with your dead father. Where's the tissue?

5. Platoon- at the very end when Charlie Sheen is taking off in the helicopter(with Samuel Barber's 'Adagio for Strings' playing in the background)- he looks down and realizes the tragedy he's experienced. Man, this gets to me...

My top 5:
Signs--I know the alien part didn't cut it for a lot of people, but the man struggling with his faith and the death of his wife really hit hard.

My Life--A Micheal Keaton/Nicole Kidman movie. Keaton is diagnosed with cancer and has unresolved issues with who he has become and with his father in particular. Plus his son is born just before he dies.

Saving Private Ryan--Humbling to think what those men did for our freedoms today.

The Deep End of the Ocean--Michelle Pfiefer has two sons. One is kidnapped as a boy. The other one grows up getting into trouble all the time. 10-12 years later they learn he is alive and well and in the same town even. Eventually you learn that the older brother thought it was his fault his brother was kidnapped and that was the reason he was messed up.

Dead Man Walking--I have never been as exhausted from watching a movie as this one. If you don't cry at the end, even for this bastard of a man--you don't have a ticker.

In addition to the aforementioned final scene in Saving Private Ryan, the only other movie I can think of that gets me every time is the end of "Rudy." First, I get goosebumps in that last game when the sideline, then the crowd chants to get him into the game. Then the surprise touchdown called by none other than Vince Vaughan (I didn't realize this until last time I watched it). Then, when he makes that sack and gets carried off the field, then the text comes up to tell you that no other member of the Fighting Irish since has been carried off the field at Notre Dame Stadium, I can't stop myself.

What a bunch of wusses.

:D

Old Yeller fer sure.

I think I cried to Brian's Song when I was a lad.

I cried at the end of It's a Wonderful Life so many times, it barely gets me going anymore...

I don't cry anymore- too stressed with life or I'm just not paying attention. But, in the movie, Forrest Gump, when Forrest is talking to Jenny at her gravesite and telling her about their son's day- that was a choker for me. I actually got choked up a bit to Big Fish when his son is describing how his father dies and carries him to the river.

Other than that, I'm usually just checking my pulse and eating popcorn at the movies...

I tell you one scene that literally broke my heart, and that was the first 20 minutes of Saving Private Ryan- the fact those poor guys had to endure such riveting drama on that beach and the strong likelihood that you were pretty much dead the second you got off a boat- still gets me today. It broke my heart to know that our soldiers had to go through hell like that sometimes...

ya, Murph. My grandfather used to bring me to the Gloucester harbor to see the boats when I was younger. One of his friend's son was Murph. real nice guy, funny as hell too. He would bring me on the boat and help him out sometimes when they were packing up to go out.

Its not like I was close to the guy or anything, I just knew him.

That, and when the little girl says she hates her dad are the two best parts in the movie.
I knew there was another part of that movie. Can't believe I didn't think of that.

I've had a lot of film that have made me cry (I get COMPLETELY involved in the story and just don't give a shit what people think -- plus it helps to get you laid when you're younger if girls think you're sensitive), but only a few things have made me cry upon subsequent viewings.

Those that have:
Films: The Passion, LOTR:ROTK, Requiem for a Dream, Schindler's List, and Cinderella Man
Theater: Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, and Miss Saigon
TV: Final Michael J. Fox "Spin City" episode, and the Quantum Leap episode mentioned earlier

I wouldn't doubt that you have, but it would take a LOT to do it... The three I mentioned I've seen 15 times alone. The wife and I are theater people, so we go fairly frequently.

I can understand an indifference to Phantom... Weber's work can sometimes be too melodramatic. But how can you hate Miss Saigon and moreso, Les Miz?
