Movies about Self-Harm? - July 29th 2009, 08:46 AM

Hello. Are there any good movies about self-harm? I've seen Thirteen, and Painful Secrets (unfortunately. The acting made me want to relapse), but I can't find any others. If anyone has any recommendations, they would be appreciated.

myspace.com/lonesome_fish for poetry. I like feedback sometimes. And I like smiley faces .

Girl, interrupted features self-harm, but it's not focused on it as it's main issue. I haven't seen Prozac Nation, but that has self harm in it too (apparently), I've read the book and that was good, so you might want to check that out.

I havent seen these movies but according to others they do have self harm in them:
The Virgin Suicides, 28 days, Manic, Stay, Dans Ma Peau (In my skin), Painful secrets, Ginger Snaps Unleashed aaaand 2:37.

However, I really wouldn't recommend that you watch these movies if you're easily triggered/unstable.

Steph has mentioned all the most common ones
I have also heard about:
- Requiem for a dream
- Downloading Nancy

Also as she mentioned, I wouldn't recommend watching them if you are feeling low and easily triggered.

Take care

There's also Wristcutters but it's only shown at the start and the rest of it has nothing to do with SH and also Fight Club which has SH included but is not mainly about it.

Dans ma peau (translates to in my skin) is a film completely about self harm.

"Stay" had a little self-harm in it, but that wasn't really any part of the plot. You should still watch it, though, it's a really good movie (unless you're easily triggered, it's about suicide).

"Rules of Attraction" featured suicide.
Pretty graphic scene.

There's one part in one of the Saw movies where a lady self-harms.

Otherwise I wouldn't know, sorry.
