Esquire's 40 Saddest Movies of All Time

"There is a lot more to be gained from a tragic movie than a cathartic "good cry." Oftentimes, it's the movies that make us most emotionally uncomfortable that achieve what is arguably the peak of cinema: forging human empathy. Those are stories that move us so deeply that we remember them for years to comeā€”even if we can hardly watch them more than once. Whether you're a ballad-loving, water-work-chasing sap, or a happy-go-lucky guy that rarely strays any sadder than a dog dying, it's always good to work a tear-jerker into your watch list; name a better risk-free controlled environment to practice your vulnerability than on your couch. These movies will do more than just get those tear ducts leaking. These deeply moving narratives will connect you to characters & stories beyond your own culture, time, and nationality. That's the power of cinema. It's a lens that transports you beyond the world you comfortably inhabit. Here some of the saddest movies of all time." - esquire.com
