"You see, I have a story too Mr Baily"

« : December 20, 2004, 07:58:44 AM »

Hi guys,
Been away for a while but just popped back to wish you all greetings for the season and to chuck another topic into the arena.
Hope this is not to soppy for us macho fans of gangsters and gunslingers, but I'm sure if we admit it, there are films out there that really hit that emotional button for us all. Not just the old lump in the throat but films that actually make you produce a tear or two?
Please share them.
Just the three for me:

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
Cinema Paradiso
Big Fish

"What's a Mook?"
Bounty Killer

OK, I'm a guy, films don't often bring a tear to my eye, but some have:

For a Few Dollars More: when Mortimer says "maybe next time" as the end music swells up

GBU: when Tuco and Blondie leave the mission, and Tuco is teling how his brother would never refuse a bowl of soup to a filthy beggar like him, and the "Father Ramirez" music plays.

Incredible Journey (Michael J. Fox voiced-version): when the old dog limps home over the hill at the end.

Treasure of the Sierra Madre: end, where Walter Huston tells Tim Holt she should contact the partner's widow.

I may add more as I remember.....and Noodles...

I don't cry when I watch a movie, but I have emotion (big emotion) with:
-A better world (un monde meilleur)
-Saving private Ryan
-Schindler's list

I think I forgot movies... :-\

I tend to get really involved when watching movies, so naturally I end up with tears in my eyes from time to time. It's that damn romance that never works out! :'(

Once Upon A Time In America
Cinema Paradiso
The Time Machine ('02)
Deer Hunter
Lolita ('97)
The Green Mile
La Vita È Bella

Oh, this brings back memories...  :'(

I've been to Sugar Town and I shook the sugar down

Cry is maybe a strong word.. but a tear to the eye and that feeling in the guts...

Breaking the Waves
Dancer in the Dark - intolerable cruelty from Trier.

Deer Hunter
and.. ok, the execution in Braveheart when he cries FREEEEEEDOM and the music roars to a climax...

As already mentioned, the scenes from FFDM and GBU comes pretty close...

There are others - I have to shamefully admit - but I cant think of them right now -  :-[

Sometimes it's maybe not the movie in itself but the mythology and grandness of it, the actors, the music (yes, very often the music), and sometimes the knowledge that these are films of times long gone...

Ever the facetious one

I always say my very favourite films are ones that can make me cry -

OUTW - two bits of this make me cry, first when the younger McBain child runs out of the house to confront Frank's gang, and again in Harmonica's flashback, when the camera pans out to reveal what's going on just as the music swells up.

Ikiru - Watanabe's funeral.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - The ending.

As a general point on this topic, I'd say the emotion a film can raise is probably the most important aspect of any film. Intriguing plots, witty dialogue, good camerawork and so on are all nice, but I think it takes a real master film maker to stir the audience's emotions.

It's class.

OUATIA (dominic being killed; the arriving of Max's son; the final discussion; and that smile at the end oh my god)
DYS (the flash back scene since Sean is watching the doctor in the truck)
The Bridges of Madison County (the end of course)
Tout sur ma Mère (all about my mother?) (the arriving of the mother in Barcelone: there is a great shot and the effect recall me of the shot at the station in OUATITW, when the camera rises up to show us Flagstone)
Mystic River (sean penn crying and screaming; the end)

It's a Wonderful Life
Scrooge (`51 with Sim!)

That's pretty much it.  Sergio flicks don't make me cry, neither does most of the other genre stuff I like.  I think only Christmas classic where the protagonist is forced to look at his life do it to me...

More feeling.
