It's certainly up there in terms of being powerful. I personally didn't have much of a visual clue what the trip looked like.

Me neither. I knew it was dangerous and whatnot, but seeing it was just heartbreaking. What made me feel even worse is how the people who make it across after all that shit are welcomed by being accused of being criminals and considered subhuman, leeches to society, etc.

Instructional dvd that showed how to make Tren from finaplix pellets. By powerful you mean strong right?

I find Half Nelson incredibly affecting for some reason.

Most of Lars von Trier's filmography is a vast exercise in juggling with the viewer's emotions. Breaking the Waves and Dancer in the Dark in particular left me in a pitiful state.

Too lazy to scroll through 9 pages of Schindler's List, so my apologies if the other side of this has already been mentioned, but Downfall sticks with like few films ever have. The scene where Magda Goebbels kills her children one by one as Berlin falls is so FN chilling

The Lives of Others edit: just scrolled back through the thread and saw this was already mentioned. I saw it alone in an empty theatre and remember walking out into the night thinking it had gotten nearer the human spirit than anything I'd experienced in a long time. For a sheer visceral quality, I might say "Letters from Iwo Jima." During the scene when the Japanese soldiers commit suicide by, in sequence, holding a grenade to their chests, I started physically shaking.

Agree with many flics already mentioned. Just to add: - Hotel Rwanda (great performance by Don Cheadle). - Philadelphia (and I usually can´t stomach Tom Hanks).

You've reminded me of another one:

Threads, a BBC drama about a nuclear attack on Sheffield in the UK. It's on YouTube in its entirety.

^ Lol. This is probably a guy who watches like 1 movie a year, and it's the one that everyone is really buzzing about.
