    Movies you're glad you saw, but will never watch again

    Do you have movies that you saw once, and you're glad you saw them and would recommend to anyone, but you will never watch again?

    I have one at the top of my list.

    Schindler's List: Incredibly well made and moving, but so disturbing. Maybe the black and white gave it more of an authentic period feel, but I was just downright shaken by that one and I have never even been tempted to view it again.

    Honorable mention, only because I have heard more than one other person bring it up, is Passion of the Christ. I have viewed it more than once, so it's not really on my list, but my mother said that she is glad she saw it once, but doesn't think she could get through another viewing.

    Any others?

    Letters from Iwo Jima was an excellent movie but not a repeat watch.

    Let the Right One In. Indie horror/romance movie from Sweden. Good movie but I wouldn't watch it again.

    First thing to pop into my mind was No Country For Old Men.

    Saw it in theater and loved it, but can't see myself ever watching it again.

    Requiem for a Dream.
    That movie still haunts me.

    Re: Movies you're glad you saw, but will never watch again

    Wow, ORH, I had an idea for a thread like this awhile ago, and it was because of two movies: Schindler's List and Cast Away.

    You won't find a bigger fan of the latter. I think Cast Away represents bold direction, tough choices- it's gut wrenching and hopeful all at the same time. I cared about a volleyball, a fact that should be as surprising as it comes. There was no soundtrack, the plane crash was filmed from inside the plane, he didn't get the girl, and the philosophical questions it raised about relationships were terrific. And again- I cared about a volleyball.

    One of my favorite lines from that film is when they tell Tom Hanks they had his funeral, and he says something like, "What did you put in the casket?"

    And as much as I loved it, I don't know if I could watch it again, though.

    Just to add- I would say that No Country for Old Men got better with an added viewing.

    Things explained, Tommy Lee Jones' voice. Enough said.

    I had kind of forgotten about that, but you're right.
