    Um ... does this have to be about crying (rush of post-Catholic repression)?

    Movies central to my life:
    1. Amelie
    2. Punch Drunk Love
    3. Annie Hall
    4. Blade Runner
    5. The Big Lebowski (of course).

    God. This makes me seem so ... male. But Amelie. God I love Amelie.

    1. Shawshank Redemption
    2. Monsters, Inc. (seriously!)
    3. Amelie
    4. Almost Famous
    5. The Man Who Wasn't There

    I love this movie too...probably the most 'feel good' movie in my collection.
    And, the Big Lebowski is my favorite movie, although I wasn't sure if I should put it as one of the 'most touching'. :)

    1) I saw The Deer Hunter at a theatre with no advanced knowledge of
    what it was about (aside from knowing it was a war movie). That was
    the most intense movie I've ever seen.

    Someone in the back of the theatre collapsed (had a heart attack?) and
    there were paramedics there for a while. So I wasn't the only one who
    found it intense, I guess.

    2) Das Boot. I've always loved WW2 submarine books and this
    movie does an excellent job of showing the claustrophobic environment
    and fear as destroyers hunt for a sub. I also like the fact that it was
    from the German point of view.

    3) Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven. Gunfighers without the glamor.

    That's all I can think of right now...

    Lately I've not seen to many movies that touched me, Love Actually is the only one that springs to mind (and that was really funny, too). Edit: Also a slightly similar movie (or is that just because Hugh Grant is in both?): About a boy. Touching, and funny...

    But I was quite unexpectedly very touched by last weeks Doctor Who episode, "Father's Day", (Norwegian TV is lagging, I know...) That episode, even if it was easy to figure out what would happen, it actually got the better of me... emotinally... :eek: ;)

    I haven't seen it in a while, but when I was a kid The Champ was the ultimate sad movie, even the toughest shed a tear when the father dies...

    I haven't seen these at all. Must not have been popular here in the US. But I am interested and would like to check them out. Thanks Mitthrawnuruodo! :D

    these are the ones that got me going...
    • Big Fish: beautiful life story, about family and how we relate our lives to other people- how we don't realize what an effect we have...
    • A Very Long Engagement: amazing love story, in french
    • Amadaeus: sensory overload- incredible sound and sight

    Big Fish was a wonderful movie. I almost forgot about it.

    They are highly recommended, just beware that I'm not quite sure The Champ has aged gracefully. I think the memory of the movie is actually better than the movie... ;)

    "Love actually", and "About a boy" which I added above, though are still relatively fresh... ;)

    And I actually like the new Doctor Who series... :eek:

    Nah... Bambi never got to me, but the first Bernard and Bianca movie, The Rescuers, was qute, and my all time favourite animated movie, Secret of NIMH, is very touching... :)

    I think it has something to do with age (and mood) the first time you see a film. We had to go see Anne Franks Diary when I was about 12, and I was utterly bored :)o). I guess that if was a bit older (or younger for that matter) and didn't see it with all my mates that didn't want to be there, either, I could/should have felt something... like I did (do) from the climax of Blade Runner, or even from parts of some more recent movies like the quite silly O Brother, where art thou? and the quirky Big Fish.

    1) Donnie Darko (you'll spend days figuring it out)
    2) American History X (how do skinheads sleep at night?)
    3) Crash (opening quote relates to everyone)
    4) Life is Beautiful (if you watch it with dubbed audio, it's pointless)
    5) Primer (time travel, with feelings)

    BONUS CRY-FEST) Simon Birch (you know what they're trying to do, but it's just so freaking sad!)

    Lord of the Rings is as touching to me as it is for peter jackson when he gets on a helicopter to do the 5 billionth shot of hobbits on horses in new zealand. come on....

    One of my all time favourites. I made my girlfriend watch it with me the other evening, but she slept through a lot of it... she says though that she enjoyed what she did see.

    Some people, eh? :p
