Grave of the Fireflies (1988)

Considered one of the saddest movies ever made, this Studio Ghibli war film is a stellar work of Japanese animation but will rip your heart out and has turned viewers into emotional wrecks by the end of its short runtime of 89 minutes.

Schindler's List (1993)

Best Picture winner based on a true story about a German industrialist who rescues Polish-Jewish refugees during the Holocaust is considered one of the best American films ever made.

American History X (1998)

This crime drama helmed by Edward Norton is a historically important movie showcasing the ugliness of the neo-Nazi movement and racial politics in America. However, it is the brutality of the film, with heartbreaking scenes that make you question humanity

Requiem for a Dream (2000)

Darren Aronofsky's powerful film is an important one time watch as it takes a harrowing look into addiction. However, its effects can be quite depressing with scenes from the movie creeping into your thoughts for days afterwards.

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (2008)

Hereditary (2018)

Ari Aster's horror masterpiece not only features creepy imagery that will haunt your nightmares but is as equally emotionally draining as it is horrifying, making it a riveting one-time watch.

Midsommar (2019)

Ari Aster's cult favourite horror film features a career defining performance from Florence Pugh and is one of the most tragically beautiful films ever created but its unsettling nature, with graphic scenes starting from the tragedy in the first half makes it an anxiety-inducing watch.
