I have a looooong list:

Schindler's list
The Colour Purple
History of Violence
American History X

All horror films - accidentally watched a Centipede one and was horribly disturbed

AI. I found the Pinocchio theme utterly harrowing and could NOT stop crying.

The only film I've seen that I never want to see again was A Serbian Film.

I had no warning when I saw it.

Saving Private Ryan. There is one scene that disturbed me and it pops into my mind years later.

Mrscog · 03/01/2018 07:24

I wouldn’t call The Colour Purple a horror... it’s a thought provoking and moving historical drama.

vvviola · 03/01/2018 07:24

Once Were Warriors
(An NZ film. Disturbing domestic abuse. It is critically acclaimed apparently and was voted the best NZ film of all time but it was absolutely horrendous to watch)

LaurieFairyCake · 03/01/2018 07:25

I was disturbed when someone posted the blurb from a Serbian Film Sad

How awful you didn't know when you watched it

Ah I see what you mean that list if films plus ALL horror films.

CauliflowerBalti · 03/01/2018 07:25

There are films I’ll never watch either.

Dancer In The Dark. The one about the boy whose mum has cancer and invents a tree monster friend. (?A Monster Calls?) I don’t deal with sad well.

See also: PS I Love You. The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas. The Road. I read the books. Nope.

LaurieFairyCake · 03/01/2018 07:26

Yes -PLUS all horror films Grin literally all horror films

The Strangers creeps me out for too much. One viewing is enough.

Also the James Macavoy film where he’s a journalist who goes to Africa. I can’t recall the name. (Spoiler alert) But the scene with the woman who is mutilated affected me more than any film wver has. I couldn’t watch.

Vitalogy · 03/01/2018 07:29

The Bridge (2006), had a profound effect on me, glad I watched it but never again, too upsetting. It's a documentary film taking in a year at the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, about the people that commit suicide.
OP, one of the films you mentioned, The Green Mile, I would watch it again but I think I'd need to be in the right mood, it's so draining from all the crying.

At NSEA think that's Last King of Scotland, about Idi Amin? Agree it's brutal, I wouldn't watch again.

NSEA · 03/01/2018 07:30

Oh its the last king of scotland and hes a dr not a journalist!

NSEA · 03/01/2018 07:31

Yes @rhinestonecowgirl! That is the one. I went for a google

Fairylea · 03/01/2018 07:33

Le Rafle. It’s a French film about the round up and deportation of the Jews in France. I knew all about the holocaust and the camps having studied it at college etc but that particular aspect of it all hadn’t really been shown to me. I found the children’s aspect of it all absolutely gut wrenching.

Last Exit to Brooklyn and Requiem for a Dream Both based on novels by Hubert Selby Jr.
