[depressing] Let's crush some hope [angst] (25)

Okay, guys, I need some movies that are a bit depressing, portraying humanity in a bleak manner, or about characters spiraling down to hell, tragedies, unescapable fates, that kind of stuff. I just want them not to be commiserating and teary.

Oh, of course. Actually it's one of the reasons I want to see more movies in that mood. The Joker is such a great man.

I thought of three films then actually looked at the ones you mentioned and realised I'm thinking differently to you, but I'll post the three anyway.

Mouchette: Girl in rural France, everything that could go wrong goes wrong.

Trainspotting.
I mean, there are depressing films about drugs and there is Trainspotting.
Naive audience might think there's a Happy End, but seriously, think about it..there's not.

Yeah, Trainspotting was good in many aspects.

Things go from bad, to worse, to fucked up.

For something a bit older, try Bicycle Thieves, Germany Anno Zero, and Umberto D.

** The Bicycle Thief

I'm french so it doesn't really bother me. Although 95% of french movie production sucks.

I'll check all your recommendations, thanks.

If OP wants bleak and depressing, he could just turn on the television and watch the news for a while.

21 Name: Couch Potato : 2008-12-24 14:54 ID:x5aL7dEF

If >>20 wants cliched and uninspired, he could just turn on the four channel and read his own post for a while.
