The 45 Saddest Movies

"The saddest movies consider life's myriad beauties from the view of unthinkable suffering. Many of the best among those use surprising bursts of comedy to help their heavier beats land. See dramedies such as "The Farewell," "Steel Magnolias," or "Dead Poets Society" for starters. Joe Swanberg's "Drinking Buddies" — about two likable best friends for whom the romantic timing isn't right — sticks out as tragic rom-dramedy.
In honor of Martin McDonagh's agonizing (and hilarious) "The Banshees of Inisherin," here are 45 of the saddest movies ever made. Please note that this is not a list of the 45 definitive saddest films, but instead a curation of melancholy and moody titles that consider a breadth of tragedy types. Selections are listed alphabetically."
