    I'll probably wake up at 3 a.m. with the name of that film on my lips!

    thanks :) thats the one.

    dead man shoes

    A disaffected soldier (Considine) returns to his hometown to get even with the thugs who brutalized his mentally-challenged brother (Kebbell) years ago.
     
  9. Yes. Took my breath away.
     
  10. The Green Mile. Every time I watch it my heart physically aches for that poor man. I could cry thinking about it now!
     
  11. Veronico Cruz, the very end of it.
    Celda 211
    The Battle of Algiers
    La Haine - even though you guess what's coming it still hits you like a train.

    I absolutely forgot about The Green Mile :-(
    I also find A.I. very sad.
     
  13. Road to Perdition. Black Hawk Down. Happy Feet. Platoon. Hostel
     
  14. Interesting choice. We went to see it simply because we saw Quentin Tarantino's name on a poster. It certainly left me gobsmacked, but not because of any powerful message that it intended to portray.

    That's one of the films I bought on dvd because I was so impressed with it, but I can't bring myself to actually watch it again. The Gladiator is another.

    Anyone else seen Morgan Freeman in 10 Items Or Less?
    Not at all a sledgehammer film, just one of those films you get from the dvd shop when you're under the weather and they don't seem to have anything you really, really want to see. And then it stays with you, somehow.
     
  18. I watched Apocalypse Now and wished I hadn't. Just so irredeemably depressing.
    This is a TV film but based on a true story. It was called I Know My First Name Is Steven. Because it's a true story, there is no happy ending just a terrible waste of a life.
     
  19. I think The Searches. I was young when first saw it and most recently Black Swan
