I'm not the type of viewer who cares much after a film is done.
There are harrowing films/scenes such as Schindler's List or Saving Private Ryan and many others

and there are horror films with slash, gore, guts etc. but it doesn't bother me. It's just a movie and i'm not going to lose any sleep over what happened in it.

True life dramas may make many think more of have more effect.


The only film I can recall in recent memory that I was thinking about for two or three days afterwards was After.Life

and not just for Christina Ricci's tremendous breasts

It kind of creeped me out thinking about it when it sunk in what happened in the movie.

I treated it as part comedy and it had no lasting effect on me

I think Goodfellas for it's dialogue, acting and realism within in it's screenplay makes it timeless.

Also, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and The French Connection were breathtaking.

If we are talking about certain moments from films that still haunt us, there are far too many. I'd be lynched here if I dared to list them all.

Seriously though, I rarely forget a good film. Especially when it offers good cinematography. I didn't like Casshern as a story, but loved its cinematography, special effects and epic feel. Same with Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, 1900, Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring, Walkabout and so on.

The Hours
It's really to do with mental health and depression and sadly it became reality a few years after viewing it.

The Deer Hunter - made me a pacifist for life and I think about these characters all the time, especially Nick.

Threads. I watched that film almost a year ago and I've thought about it almost every day since.

Sleepers. A very haunting film with such brilliant acting.

Good Will Hunting - for me it's a perfect movie - lots of angst and a good ending.

Both stayed with me for a bit.

I NEVER get scared at horror/slasher movies but I watched Wolf Creek on Film 4 one night and that stayed with me for days and really affected me.

The Breakfast Club, never forget the feeling of outlandish rebellion and freedom I got from watching that film for the first time.

Even today its one of my happy places

^ The Breakfast Club?

Understandable and easy to forgive in our day-glo, mid-80s sugar rush youth, but have you seen it these days?

It's shocking

The Empire Strikes Back. I'm 41 now and I still get that same feeling of excitement starting from the Fox fanfare. Can watch it every day and never get bored of it.

I also remember my Mum hiring me the Disney version of Robin Hood and Bedknobs and Broomsticks and really loving both of them. In the latter, I loved that magic spell scene where the calvary armory comes to life to defeat the Germans.

The Deer Hunter for me too. I saw it when I was pretty young not knowing what I was letting myself in for. It disturbed me for days afterwards.

Off the top of my head, Requiem for a Dream. I didn't even like the idea of taking an ibuprofen for a while afterwards.

Aside from the really great stuff; Hostel if only because I was cheering on the protagonist at the end which made me feel uncomfortable.

I saw Oliver Stone's amazing "Salvador" at the cinema when it first came out, and despite buying it since, just can't bring myself to watch it...

A strange one for me is John Carpenter's "Prince Of Darkness", which for some reason totally creeps me out, though it's not even close to being his best movie...

The Little Mermaid. I remember getting this for Christmas when I was little and it was and still is my favourite Disney film ever, I was obsessed with it I had dolls, pjs etc all LM.

The Lion King. I remember seeing this in the cinema and crying at the dads death

Arachnophobia. I really didn't like spiders as a kid but this made me even more afraid of them. I really do hate spiders
