Good Relatable Movies
 
What are some good movies that deal with at least one of the following:

- Anti-social main character(s)
- Depressed main character(s)
- Character(s) who hate their parents
- Killers with mental problems
- Depressed and/or lonely characters who fall in love

I don't care what genre they are or what year they were released.

One Hour Photo, good one. Poor, poor Robin Williams.

Here's two more

American Splendor
Sideways

I've always loved Paul Giamatti, he plays the sad/depressed loser better than anyone else. Giamatti in "American Splendor" is pretty much my psyche on my good days. Giamatti in "Sideways" is me on my bad days.

American Beauty
Buffalo 66'
London

going back to "American Splendor". There's a line in that film I always think about when I'm down.

The main charater (Harvey) is talking to a friend (Robert Crumb) about how lonely he's been, then says this.....

"....and don't give me any of that growth bullshit. People always say things like this will allow you to grow.................right now........I'd gladly trade growth for happiness."
