From Justin to Kelly was pretty depressing. I was hoping Justin would get abducted by Sideshow Bob and never seen again. After that happens, Kelly just happens to bump into Dwayne Johnson and they all lived happily ever after. But, alas...

I forgot to add 'Thunderbolt and Lightfoot' to my list. The 1974 Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges movie.

Jeff Bridges actually looked attractive as a woman. Eastwood and Bridges were a good combo. It would have been cool to have seen them together in a movie again.

I love every Kubrick movie with a passion, but I find Barry Lyndon depressing as fuck. Haven't watched it in over 10 years.

A lot of these movies are really really sad, but none I'd consider depressing. Unspeakably incompetent or boring movies are the only ones which make me feel anything close to depressed, like the soul-sucking miserable kind of tripe I inadvertently end up sitting through on occasion, yeesh.

Well no there's one film actually, the effects of which I still don't quite understand. My better half won't let me watch The Tree of Life around her ever again because the two and a half times we did she says I fell into a really melancholic mood for a day or two after. It's certainly not an intended emotional trigger of the film, I don't think, but there must be some deep subconscious shit going on with that one in me I don't fully understand. And it's weird because it's not at all like my family life is too similar to the one depicted in the film. I dunno maaaaaaan.

That's the benefit of Malick's personal yet highly symbolic work. It's not surprising he's able to get to you on a more subconscious level.

BTW, I watched To The Wonder again a few weeks ago and I think I enjoyed it even more than the first time. Partially spurred on by this article, a really thoughtful take:

Ooof, yeah. That movie wasn't great, but it left me feeling pretty down afterwards.

This isn't in any order, besides my top two, just the movies that stuck with me long after I originally saw them, and have just led to a generally less than stellar mood after viewing:

1) Requiem for a Dream
2) Grave of the Fireflies
3) In a Lonely Place
4) The Mist
5) One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
6) Shutter Island
7) The War (Partially here simply because watching it as a kid was a thing that has stuck with me, even though now, it's a relatively positive film)
8) Midnight Cowboy
9) The Deer Hunter
10) The Sixth Sense - Only a few movies have ever made me cry and when I saw this film the first dozen or so times, I had no issues with it. The last two times I've watched it, I don't know what changed, but for the last 15 minutes of the film, I'm basically just a horrible mess of tears and emotion. I know that sad =/= depressing, but any time I think of this film, now, I get really down, so on it goes.

FUCK I left Midnight Cowboy off my list. What a great movie.

Deer Hunter too, I guess. I don't associate that movie with sadness, but I guess it is pretty hopeless and depressing.

Great call on Shutter Island. A painful, moving work.

I keep trying to block out the fact that that movie was so much of a bummer to watch. Like, I try to convince myself there was some ambiguity there, but then I try to recall what it was, all I'm met with is the stark reminder that that was just one huge heartbreaker of a film.

EDIT: Also, I didn't even think much of this at the time that I saw the original film, so I was unaware of all of the talk about the very, very end of the movie. Now that I've been reading up on it lately, just adds so many more layers:

For some, this is to be seen as no more than the rambling of a madman. Others, however, take it as meaning that Andrew's only faking his relapse. His unusual treatment's made him aware of the terrible thing he's done: guilt has therefore engulfed him, and he's deliberately getting himself lobotomised to escape it.

Yeah, that's the consensus reading that I've heard. It's a real gut punch.
