This thread is dedicated to the films that have made you think and made you quite sad.

For me:

United 93
Titanic
Crash

I may think of more.

And Skiddy, this is not about films that made you touch yourself, understood?  Big grin

Well:

Brotherhood of war ('Taegukgi hwinalrimyeo' in Korean). A great Korean war movie, you should watch it if you get the chance, great yet heart breaking strory-line.

Joint Security area (or JSA for short).('Gongdong gyeongbi guyeok JSA' in Korean). Another Korean war film well worth seeing

Black Hawk down (although not as touching as the past 2)

I'm surprised that Apollo 13 has not come up yet. That one always gets me. Also, you all have to see Grave of the Fireflies. It's a Studio Ghibli anime film that shows what happens to two Japanese children following the firebombing of Tokyo. Phenominally depressing film, but it is definitely worth seeing.
