The Old Man brings up an interesting point ? are sad and depressing still two different things? Cause it really doesn?t get more depressing than Leaving Las Vegas.
I never saw the play, but the film version was quite well done and I hope I never see it again ever: Night, Mother. You don't cry, you just tremble.

I watched Dead Man Walking and Leaving Las Vegas back to back on a Friday/Saturday night one weekend.

I nearly didn't make it to Sunday.

No crazy

A sci-fi movie, kind of Star Wars in its genre.
There is this character called "River" who spent the whole movie crying.
I still haven't understood why she did so.
Felt so bad after that...

Sad and depressing definitely not the same.

Sad: Something that evokes the emotion of sadness such as the ending of Old Yeller.

Depressing: Anything that takes away your will to live or see more movies. Like Mystic River or Ingmar Bergman.

The one with Crispin Glover and Dennis Hopper? Really?
I spent large amounts of that movie laughing my ass off.
Stipped of my rand.

Depressing = Old Yeller (Who didnt cry when Old Yeller died?)

Sad = Showgirls (Only movie I ever saw that actually made naked vegas show girls ugly/disgusting....sad, so very sad...I couldnt watch it through to the end, it was that bad).

Is everything inverted in Canada?
Many movies make me cry, a few make me feel helpless. The latter are the depressing ones.

One that I found dpressingas a teenager is Pink Floyd: The Wall. Watched it with a bunc of friends. Afterward we all felt like jumping out of the window. Have not seen the miovie since.

The taste of your voice reveals what before was unknown.
Do you ever dream of the world like I do?

Did someone ever seen "Trees Lounge" with Steve Buscemi (featuring Micheal Imperioli and Anthony LaPaglia too)? Really depressing

...to have just one thing, just one thing in your whole life that you do that makes you proud of yourself, I don't think that's too much for anybody to ask...

I saw this movie a couple weeks ago and it was the most depressing movie ever, until it got really really weird near the end. It's worth watching until the last 7-12 minutes.

When I first watched Fried Green Tomatoes on tv when I was a kid, I completely broke down and started crying when Jessica Tandy's character died. I couldn't finish watching it. Ten years later I saw it on tv again and decided to watch the whole thing this time. Imagine my shock when I learned she didn't actually die.

Dennis Hopper had a few funny lines but the rest.....

I still found it absolutely fascinating the first time I saw it. At college on a big screen no less. It was a great inside look warts and all. At the end I was a little sad but couldn't help but be even more enthusiastic about the Beatles as it turns out they don't all walk on water after all.

great movie, filmed in my neighborhood.....the 'lounge' is a real place.
2 films by Gus Van Sant Last Days and Elephant, the whole Columbine thing was very depressing but these films were the essence of depressing, for me it is watching the avoidable happen.

My wife generally avoids all films with either Harvey Keitel or Steve Buscemi, and especially any movie that features them both.
