Intermission is the movie that made me like Farrell and know he could act, despite his terrible filmography (for the most part);In Bruges was the movie that made me very much respect Farrell. I agree he was robbed an oscar nod, but we’ll see what happens with Seven Psychopaths, if you haven’t read up on it, i highly recommend it; it’s one of my most anticipated of 2012.
The final car accident reveal in Enter The Void, wherein the young Linda cries in terror. The scene was affecting not only in an emotional capacity, but in a visceral capacity as well. I’ve not seen a more authentic, nor heart-rending, performance from a child actor. It was a scene of such immense power one can’t help but speculate as to the ethics surrounding Gaspar Noe’s methodology in coaxing such a response from a child, and the appurtenant possiblity of scarring the young actor for life.
Juliet Stevenson in Truly Madly Deeply – she looked tired, puffy eyes, red nose – THAT’s what cryin’ looks like.
Meryl Streep – Sophie’s Choice – when she has to choose – ripped my heart out
Brad Pitt – at the end of Seven
Helen Hunt – As Good As It Gets
Natalie Portman -in Garden State
Anthony Hopkins – in Howards End
Colin Farrell – In Bruges
Helen Mirren – in Gosford Park
I’ve loved you so long
Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca
Ingrid Bergman cries in movies a lot…
The “hand or foot” scene in CITY OF GOD. I can barely watch it.
Brady Corbet in the final few scenes of Mysterious Skin was really great.
Andrew Garfield in Never Let Me Go also had a great crying scene.
^Sol, you’re funny :)
^ Nice gif.
I bawled my eyes out at the end of Never Let Me Go.
Oh, you meant the actors crying. My bad.
i agree with lots of these so far, but mostly brady corbet in mysterious skin – this is probably my favourite scene of a male actor crying
others i like:
sheryl lee at the end of twin peaks: fire walk with me
bud cort in harold and maude
elizabeth taylor in suddenly, last summer
emmanuel shotte in l’humanite
i don’t know the actor’s name, but the boyfriend character at the end of ‘taxi zum klo’ when he’s carrying the sheep around
I’m going to end this thread:
Something about Kidman when she cries gets to me… especially in these two films…
But they are all put to shame by a certain animated elephant
^ Nice! I almost used that one, until I realized the OP stated ‘PEOPLE’ on the title.
