The other night I watched "The Machinist" on Netflix. Prior to watching it I read some reviews on IMDB and some people called it a very depressing movie. I did not find it to be such but it got me thinking about the unequivocally most depressing movie I have ever seen, which was "The Road" with Viggo Mortensen. Don't know how many have seen this but I would advise staying away from pills or guns for at least 48 hrs after watching it.
What's the most depressing movie you've ever seen?

I thought the movie was good, but the book was excellent. Even darker than the movie.

Does it count if I just felt depressed that I wasted 2 hours of my life watching it?

I've seen Pi, I found it more mindbending then depressing but I can see where you're coming from.

I've never been more depressed with a movie than I was when "Heidi" interrupted the final minute of the Jets/Raiders football game in 1968.

The Oakland Raiders score two touchdowns in nine seconds to beat the New York Jets--and no one saw it, because with just 65 seconds left to play, NBC switched off the game in favor of its previously scheduled programming, a made-for-TV version of the children’s story.

Talk about depressing...

They Shoot Horses Don't They?
The Book Thief
(and if it's true the book, I predict for the movie to be released this year) The Light Between Oceans

I was a train a few years ago, sat reading 'The Road'. A complete stranger came and sat opposite me and said "That's the most depressing book I have ever read!". Yes, it is a dark and gloomy book but the setting and story does not lend it to be anything else. I enjoyed the book, the film less.

You grumpy old git ! I have to confess to actually enjoying that movie. Perhaps it was the medication I was on.........

I agree about The Road. Recent one that comes to mind is Prisoners.

I've seen reviews about Moon with Sam Rockwell being terribly depressing, but I thought it was a true SF classic, fantastic movie.

Joe Namath was playing for Oakland? That is depressing!

prisoners was emotional, but had hope at the end when Jake hears the whistle.

The road, depressing, for sure.

Check out " 'night mother." trailer
A philosophy professor made us watch this. Unforgivable.

I wonder if people picking other movies have actually seen 'dancer in the dark'. the movie itself is a tragedy.

I still have nightmares about The English Patient.

Its the only movie I have seen where I couldn't side with any of the characters.

To me, Dangerous Liaisons was a feel-bad movie.

I just read the plot summary. That sounds like an incredibly sad movie.
