Biutiful, Alejandro González Iñárritu (2010)

A dignified drama, directed with grace and acted with integrity, but doesn’t it kind of tip over the edge into bummer-porn at some point? I am not afraid of depressing movies, but this one’s relentless hectoring of its hero brought me to the point of wishing he’d fight back by having at least one good thing happen to him, maybe finding a few coins in a gutter or something?
