I realize this is an old thread, but I have to add my vote for Melancholia by Lars von Trier. I'm a veteran depressed-movie-fanatic, and even for me Melancholia was a pleasant surprise.
Word to the wise though: this movie is part of a trilogy, the second one to be exact. The first one, entitled "Antichrist", was too much for me to take on. Only watch that one after you've done your research. Lars v. T. is a seriously deranged dude.
i just watched (fairly recently anyway) the fault in our stars. it's not all bad- the storyline is about 2 people that fall in love at a cancer support group, but it tries to focus on the positive side of the relasionship as well as the neggatives.
I've been watching a lot of free youtube movies as of late;
The Departed - Leonardo Dicaprio, Matt Damon, &
The Next Three Days - Russell Crowe
Before I go to sleep - Nicole Kidman
Flight Plan - Jodie Foster
Noel - Paul Walker & Penelope Cruz
Before We Go - Chris Evans (um yum) :rolleyes:
Double Jeopardy - Tommy Lee Jones & Ashley Judd
Changeling - Angelina Jolie
& many more. I like these & the actors, sometimes
I just re read the sub forum & saw that, it was what movies do you watch when you're sad. I don't. I don't like to watch movies when I am emotional. It makes it worse.
So sorry, I posted the above in the wrong category. Those are just movies I like to watch.
Favorite Depression-based films (I keep them on repeat when I'm feeling low):
-The Hours (because VIRGINIA WOOLF.)
-Prozac Nation (I have a thing for Christina Ricci; also, so many of the things she did in this film really hit home. I need to pick up Elizabeth Wurtzel's book)
-Girl Interrupted (Ditto for Winona Ryder/Angelina Jolie, and the same goes for some of Suzanna's behavior)
-Joy Luck Club
-The Professional (okay, so there's some action, but still...)
-The Crow (The Violins. 'Nuff Said)
-Silver Linings Playbook
-Mad Men (Not that it's 100% historically accurate, but man that era was pretty big on covering up any signs of weakness. Sometimes I still feel like we live this way despite our advances)
Okay, I'm noticing a pattern here, so I'll just stop. Maybe one or a few of these will interest someone?
I watched Crumb today and I loved it!
