Grave of the Fireflies - great to see this mentioned, it was the first title I thought of when I saw the list. Another for me would be Straw Dogs.

This list is missing Se7en and The Pasion of the Christ.  I don't really want to watch either of those movies ever again.  Both those movies are just FUBAR.

Loved the Sixth Sense, but once you know the ending it takes the air out of repeat viewings. Of course you have to fast forward a second viewing just to be sure he wasn't talking with the living somewhere.

Seven has got to be one of the most depressing yet awesome films ever.  But I'ts so good I'll rewatch it anytime. What's in the BOX!!!

I also agree with those who mentioned Passion.  I've had it on DVD for a long time and every year around Easter I tell myself to watch it.  But I never do.  I think because I had such an emotional response to the film in the theater, my subconscience is telling me not to.

I have to disagree with your choice of Requiem for a Dream, but I'm glad to see the film brought up here as I hope those who haven't seen it will check it out.  I've viewed it multiple times, yes it's a downer... but great movie none the less.  And I'll never forget the voice of the old man... "A-ss to A-ss"

Thanks for the comments. Some of you have mentioned Passion of the Christ. Definitely forgot about that one, but it qualifies. Ditto Straw Dogs and pretty much any other movie where the beloved pet dies at the end. I do take issue with anyone who says that any of the films on this list aren't "great." I think in one way or another all of them are difficult to resist the first time around.

@ Dark: Thanks for the spoiler alert!  I just rented that movie to watch it for the first time.  Next thing you're going to try to tell me soylent green is people.

A Clockwork Orange should have been on this list.  Good call Apropos.

#1 Requiem for a Dream was a perfect pick.  Screwed me up for days after and I still get a sinking feeling when I think about it.  For some reason the happy look on Jennifer Connely's face when she's holding her prize shortly after earning it crushed me.

The Wrestler should've made it on this list, want to talk about a great movie that I would never watch again.

Leaving Las Vegas is a film that I loved seeing in the theatre, but I don't think I have watched it since.  I even own it, but everytime I think about watching it I get depressed just thinking about it and don't.  My wife and I just yesterday flipped by Requiem on tv and both agreed that we couldn't watch it.

The huge twist in Sixth Sense is exactly why I enjoy repeat viewings. It's great to go back and watch scenes knowing what you know and seeing how well they are filmed.  It's like watching The Usual Suspects.  The looks and reactions take on a whole new meaning when you know the ending.  Both very well done movies.

Even disturbing movies, or movies with disturbing scenes, don't disqualify me from re-watching movies.  I have watched Misery countless times, but I have only seen the scene where she breaks his ankle once. That was the 1st time I saw it in the theater.  To this day, I still haven't seen the 2nd ankle.  Only heard it.  I can't bring myself to watch it again.  Clockwork Orange is a good one, though I haven't seen it that many times.  Death Wish is another one that is very good (just caught some of it last night on cable), but the initial attack scene on the wife & daughter is very disturbing.  I usually like to come in to the movie right after that.  I can watch Se7en until the cows come home. Love that movie! My aunt gave me Passion of the Christ years ago.  Mrs fft watched it, but I still haven't been able to bring myselt to see it.  Haven't seen Requiem for a Dream, either, but I have seen a disturbing scene with Jennifer Connelly.  Ick.
