Rumble - Not every movie is suited for every mood, nor should it be. Movies serve to relax us a bit, help us wind down after a hard day at work. They are supposed to make us laugh and pay attention, but movies are also here to send a message. The art of cinematography is one of the best media to spread the awareness of certain topics just because it is so widely used by the Earth’s population. It is there to make us reevaluate our beliefs, make us question everything and help us build critical thinking.

For these harrowing films, one viewing is all you'll need...or want. From Grave of the Fireflies, to Million Dollar Baby, to Precious, these movies will leave you so shaken you definitely won't want to rewatch them anytime soon. WatchMojo ranks the top movies so depressing you can only watch them once.

Many of the films on this list focus on the period of the Second World War, as it is one of the most difficult times for human civilization in recent history. Many atrocious acts have been performed on innocent people that we barely want to think about them now, but movies serve to remind us that they happened and we should never let them be repeated again. These movies feature graphic scenes from concentration camps and hard choices people had to make to survive. Some of these oeuvres d’art focus on more recent events and ongoing topics such as rape, poverty, drugs and domestic violence. Have you already seen these movies? Do you agree with us on the ranking?
