Most Depressing Movies

Dancer In The DarkI was looking at IMDB the other day and came across “Most Depressing Movie List”. I am not sure that this list is very good because I kind of like some of the movies on the list. But then some of them are depressing but it kind of depends on the mood you are in. This is what IMDB had to say.
