Wow, so many good, but sad movies here.

Movies that make me weep every time:

Brian's Song
Love Story
Terms of Endearment
The Shootist
The Green Mile
Lassie Come Home (even though it has a happy ending, I cry through the whole thing)
The Snow Goose (Hallmark Hall of Fame)
Platoon
The Deerhunter
Born Free (I start weeping at the opening theme song)
Ring of Bright Water

American movies are made for little kids and for adults who think like little kids.
Modern American movies, or does that include the old classics too?

I agree. The last scene between John Wayne and Lauren Bacall talking about his birthday, when she says "it's what we call a fall spring," and the look that passes between them is still one of the saddest moments I've experienced in a movie, makes me cry every time.

Beaches- that song just gets me.
My Girl- When he dies trying to get her that ring
The Color Purple- Poor Celie really struggled.
Angela's Ashes
Up- that first few minutes of that movie takes you on a whirl of emotions. So sad when the wife dies

Saddest I've ever seen is My Life, starring Michael Keaton.

The premise is that he and his wife are expecting a baby when he discovers he has a terminal disease. He creates a video for his unborn child, who he will never meet, about who he is and about the details of his life. Such a horribly sad movie.

Has anyone watched Shenandoah? I watched it just for Glenn Corbett's eyes - but the story had me sobbing my eyes out by the end.

Maria Full of Grace is also a terribly sad movie.

I have heard Lilya 4 Ever is about the saddest movie ever made - I haven't summoned the courage to watch it yet.

Yes they did get the killer! He died in the end when he fell down the hillside
