    "Grave of the fireflies" is the saddest movie I've ever seen by a LONG stretch.

    It's an early ghibli film about 2 Japanese children orphaned after a bombing in WWII. It chronicles them being ignored by a mean aunt and slowly starving to death while being ignored by society. Powerfully saddening in a lasting way.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned "It's A Wonderful Life". It's got a lot of comedy, but the scene that always gets me is near the end. Jimmy Stewart sobbing " I want to live again, I want to live again" alone in the snow after he's seen what his impact on the world really consisted of.

    It's a helluva thing to realise that there's more to life than what's going on in our own heads. Some people come to this later than others.

    The Fox and the Hound.

    Apparently this was my favorite movie as a kid so my Mom bought it for my boys to watch (I still like the part where the fox is teaching the hound to howl). However, after sitting through it I feel as if my young, un-jaded mind somehow processed only the positive message from the movie. Whereas my older, cynical mind was just thoroughly bummed out. :(

    Then there's The Hogfather, this got to me most unexpectedly last night and I have to blame it on having children. First there was how Death deals with the fate of the Little Matchstick Girl (an absolutely dreadful fairy tale to read as an adult). Then the part about having to believe in the little deceits (like Santa) to allow us to believe in the bigger lies (truth, justice) really was tough to sit through. The two-episode mini-series is, in my opinion, one of the best adaptations of Terry Pratchett's books although the book is still better.

    Here's the quote, with respect to Mr. Pratchett. For the uninitiated; Death, when he speaks, is always in all capital letters. His voice is said to sound like countless crypts and caverns. Susan is his granddaughter. It's complicated. ;)

    Good call on that one. That movie messed me up for a few weeks. Still nothing compared to Grave of the Fireflies though. I could always break the sad on Requiem by saying "well, they did it to themselves. Drugs are bad, mmmmkay". Cant say the same for starving children in a war zone.

    This. Should. Be. Shown. In. Every. High. School. In. America The. World.


    The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds, and the pessimist fears this is true.

    Breaking the waves from Lars Von Trier... Possibly the saddest movie ever made. Dying to save someone you love...

    If you are looking for a movie that will pull at the heart strings in a sad way, I recommend The Jack Bull.
