Made me swiping at nose with a tissue

These are all the movies that cut some onions for me. I don't mean the movies that got me in a melancholy state, but every damn movie that got me puffy eyed out of crying for whatever reason.

As for the Asian movies, at some point the damn credit sequence starts and they'll still fuck you up, even when you think you survived some to the end.

Dear male movie enthusiasts, never be ashamed for your tears! Stay true to yourself.

(There're only movies here, that I have logged as watched on letterboxd so far, so of course, this list is going to grow bigger and bigger as I continue to log more films watched.)
