I watched that movie for the first time the other night. It was dark, and I was by myself. It really shook me up. The portrayals of love and anguish were powerful, at least to me. Like when he finds her kneeling at the tree, and he comes up behind her, trying to comfort, soothe her, and she just puts her head back and wails in wild anguish at her loss. I cried my eyes out watching that movie, her misery. There are other movies that have essences of that…Like the end of Far and Away, when the horse rolls over him, and you think he’s dead…or Braveheart, and the death of Wallace’s wife…
What are some other good movies like this that just turn you into a mushy, crying wreck after you’re done watching them? And no, I’m not talking about movies like Requiem for a Dream. We’re talking romance movies.
*And all you jokers out there getting ready to revile me for my fondness of What Dreams May Come…get bent and stay out!
