7º – Fruitvale Station (Ryan Coogler, 2013)Based on a real event, the film tells the story of a young black man, exposing his last days before a sad tragedy. Social study on latent racism in the United States, ‘Fruitvale Station’ is sad in every scene offered to the viewer. A strong and necessary film.
6º – The Elephant Man (David Lynch, 1980)A disfigured man, regarded by the social realm as an aberration of pure entertainment, is discovered by a physician, gaining a new life and developing his psychological apparatus. ‘The Elephant Man’ is sad to simply explain the way that the human being treats that which escapes the habitual, the common place, working to destroy any sphere that is beyond his control.
5º – The Pianist (Roman Polanski, 2002)In the plot, a Jewish musician tries to survive in the midst of social exacerbations in World War II. Notable as one of the most potent films of Roman Polanski’s career, “The Pianist” manages to condense in 150 minutes of projection several of the horrors of humanity. A sad movie in all its senses, causing even more impact on its viewer by the masterful performance of Adrien Brody ahead of the protagonist.
4º – Manchester by the Sea (Kenneth Lonergan, 2016)After the death of his brother, a man, wrapped in a self-destructive routine and depressive, is charged with the mission to take care of his teenage nephew. However, little by little, with various fragments of the past of all the characters, we will see why man is in his current state. ‘Manchester by the Sea’ is a beautiful film but does not offer any positive points to its viewer about the lives studied in the plot.
