What's the most powerful movie you've ever seen? - Page 10

City of God hasn't been mentioned and it should be.

More recent and I am surprised it isn't mentioned on SF is Tom Fords A Single Man.

I think City of God was mentioned! Also, although A Single Man is a very good movie, especially aestethically, does it deserve to be in this thread? I'll admit that there are even worse examples, Slumdog for example, but still... I'm pretty pissed at myself for forgetting The Wrestler. Probably the movie that effected me most emotionally, I felt completely numb afterwards. Need to watch again.

Me, too. My wife figured out what it was about and declined to watch. When I went to bed after the movie and she asked me what happened, I literally broke down in tears as I explained it.

Based on the recommendations in this thread I've watched: The Butterfly Effect Requiem For a Dream Sin Nobre Kids Wrestler Requiem for a Dream has been the most powerful in my opinion. That movie tore me up.

^ gah, Eraserhead! Extremely powerful, in its own way. I made the mistake of attempting to watch it while tripping on acid - the chicken dinner scene drove me from the room.

New level of film violence for it's time, tension building to terror, combined with all the cultural baggage American's had with the war.

1970? I think I was in second grade when Risky Business came out. And my dad made me leave the room because Rebecca Demornay does the nasty on the train (among other places).

Made up for it later by sitting very uncomfortably between my parents for a few seconds during Basic Instinct.

The Excorsist. I watched it when I was 9ish and it kept me frightened of being possessed by evil spirits while in bed in the dark for years.

City of God was great.
Lawrence of Arabia
The Road
There will be blood
There are many others I am missing.
