I'm not sure any movie has left me feeling so void after viewing than Requiem, so that's at least my #1. I'll have to give this a bit more thought.

I watched that movie for the first time a couple of months ago on Netflix and the ending was definitely a bummer.

Yes, that movie took a turn that I never expected. Hillary Swank gave a helluva performance.

I figured it was the latter, but I watch a lot of depressing shit. It's tough to just pick 10 I like.

Grave of the Fireflies.

I can't imagine what it would have been like to see this paired with My Neighbour Totoro on initial release.
