    Baraka, I'll never forget it and I'll always remind myself to watch it once in a while.

    Just seen this movie a couple months ago. Very interesting.

    the shawshank redemption -- this movie really sucked me in and i was overjoyed at the end of it. such a great movie. really moved me, i think.

    AI artificial intelligence -- i saw this movie when i was younger...theres something about it...its a pretty weird movie. but it really had an effect on me.

    the notebook -- i reacted like a bitch to the end of this movie, so that's why it's here. i have to include it because it extracted tears.

    Requiem for a Dream.
    American History X
    +1, those were the first ones that came to mind. Also, Battle Royale. That movie left me thinking for days. also, The Butterfly Effect

    The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.

    An incredibly moving film for me. It was the first time I'd cried in about 10 years.

    Might not have been the best I've seen, but it was certainly the most powerful

    The Pianist was pretty powerful to me, also the last 45min of the Return of the King

    For sheer, gripping drama throughout, I'd have to give the palm to The Naked Prey starring Cornell Wilde.
