Two Sad But Good Movies That Will Stick in Your Head

Half Nelson:

Even the picture is sad, right? I never saw this Ryan Gosling dude in anything before but he was fantastic. That kind of acting where you can just see inside someone's head, without them being all flashy about it.

Speaking of which, I'm pretty sure Gosling went to acting school with this guy from The Lives of Others (except for them being 20 years apart in age and Ulrich Muhe being from Germany):

One of the saddest movies ever, but also incredibly beautiful and thought-provoking.

The Lives of Others was swell. Half-Nelson made me feel bad.
I read The Road to cheer me up.
