If you’re like me, you don’t like unrealistic and superficial endings. There’s nothing wrong with happy movies, but even those movies can have bittersweet endings. In recent online posts, movie buffs have selected truly depressing and dark movies that somehow make us feel more human.
1. The Road (2004)
I have read the book and also seen the movie, and the movie depicts the dystopian imagery, tension, and pain of the book. road Basically the definition of dark.
2. Come and see (1985)
If you’re a sensitive person, you should never watch Almost Real Butcher, a Soviet film about a small village destroyed by troops in World War II.Please do not come to see us if you are feeling depressed. Come and see.
3. Grave of the Fireflies (1988)
One moviegoer said he finished watching the movie for about 15 minutes before turning it off. This Japanese animated film details the harsh realities of survival after the wartime bombing of Kobe.
4. The Hunt (2012)
I haven’t seen this movie yet, but I’m curious about the premise. An elite group kidnaps blue-collar “deplorable” Americans for sport. I don’t think any other allegorical film hits our current reality more directly than this one.
5. Leaving Las Vegas (1995)
Leaving Las Vegas A beautiful and vivid depiction of death due to alcohol. Starring career-best Elisabeth Shue and Nicolas Cage, the film’s brutality of alcoholism forces you to pour yourself a drink, or at least gulp down an ice-cold drink.
6. Synecdoche, New York (2008)
The film, which features the excellent Philip Seymour Hoffman in a great role, is as melancholic as it is intellectual, about a playwright on the brink of insecurity.
7. Thread (1984)
meanwhile thread Although it seems dated now, this British/Australian work fictionalizing the nuclear holocaust in Sheffield, England, was very effective for its time. This TV movie aired at the height of the Cold War, but the timing was great as always.
8. Kids (1995)
Thanks to the commenter for featuring it kids, I now have to remember the trauma I suffered watching this movie about New York teenage degenerates. It’s tough, gritty, and downright infuriating.
9. Midnight Express (1978)
Alan Parker’s film adaptation of the famous book about Turkish prisons is notorious for its bleak depiction of human rights. I’d like to think that Turkish prisons are better than they are now, but I’m hesitant to know that.
10. The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017)
This movie was upsetting, but I loved it. I definitely felt uneasy while watching it, but it was really well done. This is a really great black comedy, but it’s on the darker end of the genre. New parents should definitely watch this.
11. House of Sand and Fog (2003)
This book and movie are equal parts to me, showing what kind of horror can happen through an innocent catalyst. The case begins with a vulnerable addicted woman who has her home taken away by the state, which leads to her house being bought at auction by a former military general who is on the run from her home country. The tragedy that unfolds leaves the viewer numb.
12. Tyrannosaurus (2011)
tyrannosaurus The film depicts a lonely, violent man whose life is falling apart, even though he believes he has found salvation in the work of a Christian thrift store worker.
13. Dead Man’s Shoes (2004)
In another British psychological drama, a war veteran returns to his hometown in rural Yorkshire to confront his demons. The plot twist follows his intellectually disabled brother on his violent adventures as he seeks out a group of local thugs who tormented his older brother during his active years. The gritty scenery and realistic acting add to the deep sadness of Shane Meadows’ excellent tragedy.
14. Inreversible (2002)
This movie messes with your head. First, we have to deal with the shockingly gruesome content, which includes violent physical abuse of women. Additionally, the film is shot backwards, so the end is the beginning and vice versa. Those who survived within the period irreversible You may wish you could reverse what you just saw. It’s seductively harsh, yet incredible.
15. In the Bedroom (2001)
The film jumped onto the Oscar train that year after great performances from Tom Wilkinson and Sissy Spacek. But this exposition will make any parent clench their fists. The film isn’t visually shocking, but watching parents deal with the loss of their son and getting revenge on his killer weighs heavily on your mind for a while.
