      List the one movie that, even though it's a masterpiece in your opinion, it's too emotionally wrenching for you to watch too often.

     It'll be at least 2015 before I watch this again; saw it in 2010....

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

"Pet Sematery" (1989)

...I saw this in the movies when it came out and a few times afterward on video, and always dug it, cuz I was a Stephen King fan/teenage gorehound and it was a very effective adaptation of one of SK's most disturbing works.

Flash forward about fifteen years and my wife and I watched it for the first time in a very long while and we could barely get through it. As parents of a little boy who was about the same age as little "Gage" in the film at the time, watching that movie was like seeing every one of our worst nightmares come to life. It opened up a whole new set of fears that I don't think I realized I even had, it hit me right between the eyes. 

It's come on TV or On Demand a couple of times since then and my wife and I will both go "Oh, noooo! Never again!"

TWO WOMEN (1960) 
A very powerful film, directed by the great VITTORIO DE SICA, I can look at parts around the scene, and even happened to catch that scene by accident during a recent TCM showing, and have no plans to ever look at it again.  I have a very difficult time with that movie, a masterpiece.  It's devastating.

Last years Amour was a fantastic movie fully deserving of its Best Picture nomination. However I can't imagine anyone wanting to go through that experience a second time. Another excellent film "We Need to Talk about Kevin" is a wonderfully acted and scripted but its subject matter is so dark that I can't see myself watching it again. Some others:
The Deer Hunter
Stand by Me (the ending always kills me)
Million Dollar Baby
Blue Valentine
Leaving Las Vegas

There's much to like, especially the first hour.  Then it gets scary and disturbing.

THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST.
Watched it twice in the theater; cried all the way through both times.
Got the DVD for Christmas that year; I've never watched it since.

What happened in Europe during WW2 outside the battlefield is very very ugly. Solzhenitsyn write about it

I cannot watch this again even though I have it in my collection.



I went to the premiere in March 2010, I cried through most of it, I nearly had a car accident on the way back to the hotel and I most certainly couldn't eat or sleep that night.

A brilliant film - one that shows Uwe Boll is capable of doing more than dishing up cinematic fertilizer.

Oh yeah, this is another one. Ditto for Oliver Stone's "World Trade Center" w/Nicolas Cage. Both were good movies but I can't watch either one again.

Yeah, that was an excellent movie but I don't think I could sit through it twice.

Probably something like Das Boot.  Emotionally gripping and all that, but who would want to sit through it more than once?  Not me.
